Optimization of feedback in a multiuser miso communication downlink with energy harvesting users /

Shakiba-Herfeh, Mahdi
We study the optimization of the number of bits allocated by energy harvesting users for sending feedback to a common multiple-antenna access point (AP). The nodes need to distribute their feedback transmissions judiciously across time (and channel states) in order to maximize certain throughput goals. While the MISO channel capacity from the AP to a user is a strictly increasing function of the number of feedback bits sent by the user to the AP for providing channel state information, the energy consumption for sending this feedback is (assumed to be) directly proportional to the number of feedback bits. Considering long term throughput, the nodes need to adapt the number of bits of feedback to their energy harvesting profiles.


Evaluation of Terahertz Channel in Data Centers
MOLLAHASANİ, Shahram; Onur, Ertan (2016-04-29)
Designing data center network topologies with the objective of minimizing cost, increasing bisection bandwidth and decreasing latency is a difficult problem. The solutions in the literature mainly concentrate on wired networks and minimizing wiring costs thereof. Only a few proposals address the benefit of employing wireless communications in data centers due to spectrum and bandwidth limitations of current wireless communication technologies. By using terahertz communication in a data center as a complemen...

Kement, Cihan Emre; Uysal Bıyıkoğlu, Elif; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
The need for energy efficient communication frameworks is growing. Energy harvesting communication constitutes an important part among such systems. This thesis aims to design and optimize a rate adaptation algorithm for transmitters of such systems in order to achieve energy efficiency. An optimal offline rate scheduling problem with battery constraints is solved by using iterative and heuristic techniques. Furthermore, it is shown that an additional energy saving is possible by changing the optimization p...

İncebacak, Davut; Baykal, Nazife; Bıçakcı, Kemal; Department of Information Systems (2013)
Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are composed of battery powered small sensor nodes with limited processing, memory and energy resources. Self organization property together with infrastructureless characteristics of WSNs make them favorable solutions for many applications. Algorithms and protocols developed for WSNs must consider the characteristics and constraints of WSNs but since battery replenishment is not possible or highly challenging for sensor nodes, one of the major concerns in designing network p...
