Most distributed power control algorithms have been proposed assuming constant interference and constant path gain. These considerations may result in lower performance gains in fast time-varying channel conditions. The algorithm presented herein addresses this problem efficiently and it is based on a simple prediction method, utilizing Taylor’s Series. In each iteration, the proposed algorithm predicts both the path gain and the interference and after that, adjust the transmit power.
