Optimization in Cognitive Radio Networks with SWIPT-Based DF Relay
Energy-constrained relay networks are normally powered by a fixed energy, which limits the runtime of networks. Energy harvesting (EH) with simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT) is hopeful to increase the life of energy-limited relay networks. We investigate the optimization problem about power splitting ratio for SWIPT-based decode-and-forward (DF) relay in cognitive radio networks (CRNs). Secondary relaying node (SRN) harvests energy from secondary source node (SSN) then use the energy to assist forwarding SSN information to the secondary destination node (SDN). We maximize throughput of secondary users (SUs) if the interference caused by SU to the primary users (PUs) is under the threshold. Some opinions are provided through theory analysis and simulation results.
