Energy harvesting (EH) structure based on the ambient wireless communication technique, has lastly carried out the development approach to widen the existing time of the wireless networks. The energy collecting composition for the half duplex and full duplex wireless networks is examined. By employing the time switching-based relaying (TSR) networks and the Decode-and-Forward (DF) structure, we imply the approximated section of the operation probability and then estimate the throughput of the half-duplex and full-duplex wireless networks. We can see an essential outcome clearly based on the position of relaying, the achievement rate, the noise at the source and the relay as well as the energy transition component in TSR, effect on their outage possibility and throughput. Ultimately, the performances of the full-duplex (FD) and half-duplex (HD) wireless network architectures is different, the results are collected to demonstrate that, for a normal maximal networks, sometimes, FD one are more optimal than HD model and contrariwise, for instance, when the distance between the relay and the transmitter isn’t great, The outage possibility of the HD model is better than FD one. Or when rises \(\eta \), the HD throughput becomes better etc. With the same method, we also get the results illustrate that DF of two antennas is better than that of one antenna. Consequently, based on the practical condition, we determine what model is better.
