Heterogeneous network is a promising solution to improve the energy efficiency of the cellular system. In this work, an energy efficient power management scheme designed for LTE femtocells is presented. Using user and service classification, the proposed algorithm balances the network coverage, average data rate and energy consumption. Simulation results confirms the superiority of proposed algorithm in energy efficiency and coverage.
