Optimal and implementable transmission schemes for energy harvesting networks

Özçelik, Fatih Mehmet
Progress in energy harvesting technology and the increasing need for the energy efficient and environmentally friendly applications have called for reconsideration of communication systems. This reconsideration results in new problem formulations regarding the recent developments on energy harvesting systems. Recently, optimal strategies for various types of energy harvesting networks have been developed based on different harvesting models. This thesis reports the results of our research to develop the optimal scheduling structures on an energy harvesting broadcast and fading channels, and to devise online implementable algorithms for a point-to-point communication system. Particularly, structural properties of an optimal offline schedule in, (1) an energy harvesting broadcast channel with one transmitter two receivers, (2) a single user communication system under fading conditions, are investigated. Moreover, an online algorithm is proposed for a single-user energy harvesting communication system considering the physical constraints and necessities regarding implementation. The proposed scheme is implemented through GNU Radio framework on a USRP device.

Deploying renewable energy systems (RES) to supply electricity faces many challenges related to cost and the variability of the renewable resources. One possible solution to these challenges is to hybridize RES with conventional power systems and include energy storage units. In this study, the feasibility analysis of a grid-connected photovoltaic (PV)wind-battery hybrid system is presented as a microgrid for a university campus-scale community on a Mediterranean island. Models for PV and wind turbine syste...

Tekbıyık Ersoy, Neyre; Uysal Bıyıkoğlu, Elif; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2012)
This thesis presents various studies on energy efficient design of wireless networks. It starts with a survey on recent shortest path based energy efficient routing algorithms developed for ad hoc and sensor networks, making a comprehensive classification for these algorithms. In addition to energy efficient design, sustainable and environmentally friendly deployment of wireless networks demands increased use of renewable energy. However, this calls for novel design principles to efficiently utilize the var...
