An efficient energy transmission is a key factor to be considered for long-term and low-power operations for WBAN. Reactive and proactive are two important available transmit power control techniques that are chosen based on the channel condition but are present with drawbacks in terms of delays, errors and overhead. As a result, an adaptive hybrid transmit power control (AHTPC) algorithm is used against proactive or reactive technique to overcome its limitations. However, the AHTPC which is used also possesses some additional delays and overhead. Thus, the game theory-based adaptive hybrid transmit power control (GTTPC) technique is developed for mobile condition in WBAN. In this algorithm, both received signal strength indicator (RSSI), signal-to-interference noise ratio (SINR) and packet reception rate (PRR) values are taken for choosing the appropriate channel for controlling power. It is noted through the simulation results that the proposed GTTPC technique achieves reduced overhead, delay and energy consumption with enhanced delivery ratio and residual energy compared to AHTPC techniques.
