Growing attentions have been paid to renewable energy or hybrid energy powered heterogeneous networks (HetNets). In this paper, focusing on backhaul-aware joint user association and resource allocation for this type of HetNets, we formulate an online optimization problem to maximize the network utility reflecting proportional fairness. Since user(More)
—This paper investigates the energy efficient resource allocation for orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA) relay systems, where the system is supplied by the conventional utility grid and a renewable energy generator equipped with a storage device. The optimal usage of radio resource depends on the characteristics of the renewable energy(More)
Severe pollution induced by traditional fossil fuels arouses great attention on the usage of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) and renewable energy. However, large-scale penetration of PEVs combined with other kinds of appliances tends to cause excessive or even disastrous burden on the power grid, especially during peak hours. This paper focuses on the(More)
—Cellular networks are now rapidly evolving to the renewable heterogeneous network (HetNet) architectures, where a mixture of macro base stations (BSs) and small cell BSs coexist. Particularly, these BSs are partly-powered or self-powered by renewable energy sources (RES). In this context, joint user association and resource allocation is challenging. In(More)
SUMMARY Femtocell technology has been drawing considerable attention as a cost-effective means of improving cellular coverage and capacity. However, under co-channel deployment, femtocell system in dense environment may incur high uplink interference to existing macrocells and experiences strong inter-cell interference at the same time. To manage the uplink(More)
—We study the relay station (RS) sleep control mechanism targeting on reducing energy consumption while improving users' quality of service (QoS) in green relay-assisted cellular networks, where the base station (BS) is powered by grid power and the RSs are powered by renewable energy. By adopting green RSs, the grid power consumption of the BS is greatly(More)
