MULTI-GROUP MULTICAST BEAMFORMING FOR SIMULTANEOUS WIRELESS INFORMATION AND POWER TRANSFER

In this paper, simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT) concept is introduced for multi group multicast beamforming. Each user has a single antenna and a power splitter which divides the radio frequency (RF) signal into two for both information decoding and energy harvesting. The aim is to minimize the total transmission power at the base station while satisfying both signal-to-interference-plus- noise-ratio (SINR) and harvested power constraints at each user. Unlike unicast and certain broadcast scenarios, semidefinite relaxation (SDR) is not tight and global optimum solution cannot be found for this problem. We propose an iterative algorithm where a convex optimization problem is solved at each iteration. Both perfect and imperfect channel state information (CSI) at the base station are considered. Simulation results show that the proposed solution is very close to the SDR lower bound and a few number of iterations are enough for the algorithm convergence.

Cooperative Localization In One-Hop And Multi-Hop Wireless Sensor Networks Using Alternating Minimization Algorithm
Erdemir, Ece Naz; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2016-05-19)
In this work, a new approach is proposed to solve cooperative localization problems in wireless sensor networks for both one-hop and multi-hop cases. To find the unknown positions of randomly distributed sensors with limited power and communication ability, noisy inter-sensor distances and anchor node positions are used. In a plane, when the distances between a sensor and at least three neighbor anchors are known, it is possible to find the sensor position by solving a linear set of equations. However, for ...
Concurrent operation of wireless power transfer based contactless slip ring and motor drive system with a single converter
Ayaz, Enes; Keysan, Ozan; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2022-9)
This thesis presents a novel approach for concurrent power transfer to wired and wireless systems using a single inverter. This proposed approach fits a cost-effective solution to wireless power transfer (WPT) systems used in contactless slip rings (CSR) applications such as sensors, radars, or wind-turbine pitch controls. In conventional systems, there are two separate converters: one is for the motor drive, and the other is for the WPT system. It is proposed that the switching harmonics of the motor drive...
Carrier Phase Shift Method of SPWM for Concurrent Wired and Wireless Power Transfer Systems
Ayaz, Enes; Altun, Ogün; Keysan, Ozan (2022-01-01)
IEEEThis paper presents an approach for concurrent power transfer to wired and wireless systems using just a single inverter. The approach utilizes a novel carrier phase-shift (CPS) method that independently controls the inverter output voltages at the fundamental and switching frequencies. This proposed method can be a cost-effective solution to wireless power transfer (WPT) systems used in contactless slip rings (CSR), which transfer power to auxiliary loads such as sensors, radars, and IoT devices. There...
Antenna Selection and Hybrid Beamforming for Simultaneous Wireless Information and Power Transfer in Multi-Group Multicasting Systems
DEMİR, ÖZLEM TUĞFE; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2016-10-01)
In this paper, low-cost alternatives to full digital beamforming, namely, antenna selection and hybrid beamforming, are proposed for simultaneous wireless information and power transfer in a multi-group multicasting scenario. The joint problem can be outlined as the design of beamformer weight vectors and power splitting ratios in order to satisfy both signal-to-interference-plus-noise - ratio and harvested power constraints at each user with minimum transmission power. We first develop an efficient algorit...
Parallel decodable channel coding implemented on a MIMO testbed
Aktaş, Tuğcan; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
This thesis considers the real-time implementation phases of a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) wireless communication system. The parts which are related to the implementation detail the blocks realized on a field programmable gate array (FPGA) board and define the connections between these blocks and typical radio frequency front-end modules assisting the wireless communication. Two sides of the implemented communication testbed are discussed separately as the transmitter and the receiver parts. In a...
