In this paper, we investigate profit maximization problem in wireless powered communication (WPC) systems, where the profit is defined as the difference between the revenue earned from uplink data transmission and total energy cost of the system. Since the efficiencies of energy harvesting (EH) circuits and battery storage are both non-linear, conventional… CONTINUE READING
