Energy Efficient Transmission Scheduling for Channel-adaptive Wireless Energy Transfer

Bacınoğlu, Baran Tan

We consider a fading communication link where the transmitter is powered by the receiver through wireless energy transfer (WET). A typical application scenario for this is the transmitter being a simple sensor while the demand for data is created by an application running at the receiver side and pulled from the transmitter as needed. We formulate two offline transmission scheduling problems: the transmitter-centric WET transmission optimization problem, where the schedule is computed by the transmitter, and the receiver-centric WET transmission optimization problem, where the receiver computes the schedule. We provide explicit solutions of both problems and propose online policies that rely on using the estimated water level values for each case. Our formulation allows direct optimization of energy efficiency in contrast to other EH transmission scheduling formulations in the literature. We prove some equivalence results under the special case of fixed channels.

Blind channel estimation based on the Lloyd-Max algorithm innarrowband fading channels and jamming
Dizdar, Onur; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2011)
In wireless communications, knowledge of the channel coefficients is required for coherent demodulation. In this thesis, a blind channel estimation method based on the Lloyd-Max algorithm is proposed for single-tap fading channels. The algorithm estimates the constellation points for the received signal using an iterative least squares approach. The algorithm is investigated for fast-frequency hopping systems with small block lengths and operating under partial-band and partial-time jamming for both detecti...
Energy scavenging from low-frequency vibrations by using frequency up-conversion for wireless sensor applications
Külah, Haluk (2008-03-01)
This paper presents an electromagnetic (EM) vibration-to-electrical power generator for wireless sensors, which can scavenge energy from low-frequency external vibrations. For most wireless applications, the ambient vibration is generally at very low frequencies (1-100 Hz), and traditional scavenging techniques cannot generate enough energy for proper operation. The reported generator up-converts low-frequency environmental vibrations to a higher frequency through a mechanical frequency up-converter using a...
Robust Design for MISO SWIPT System with Artificial Noise and Cooperative Jamming
Chu, Zheng; Le, Tuan Anh; Nguyen, Huan X.; Karamanoglu, Mehmet; Zhu, Zhengyu; Nallanathan, Arumugam; Ever, Enver; Yazıcı, Adnan (2017-12-08)
Considering simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT), we study a multiple-input-single-output (MISO) secrecy channel which consists of a multi-antenna transmitter and a cooperative jammer (CJ), multiple multi-antenna energy receivers (ERs), i.e., potential eavesdroppers, and multiple single-antenna co-located receivers (CRs). Both transmitter and CJ send the intend signal with artificial noise (AN) and jamming signal to interfere with the ERs. All receivers (CRs and ERs) adopt a power sp...
Life time sensitive weighted clustering on wireless sensor networks
Alizadeh Jarchlo, Elnaz; Bazlamaçcı, Cüneyt Fehmi; Department of Information Systems (2013)
Wireless Sensor Networks typically include wireless sensor nodes with limited energy. Network lifetime and scalability are considered as two significant requirements for sensor network applications. In order to decrease energy consumption and increase network lifetime one can apply an efficient clustering method. The application of the clustering method proposed in this thesis (LTS-WCA) leads to reducing the energy cost and the transmission distance of each node by grouping the nodes in several clusters and...
Path planning and localization for mobile anchor based wireless sensor networks
Erdemir, Ecenaz; Tuncer, Temel Engin; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2017)
In wireless sensor networks, sensors with limited resources are distributed in a wide area. Localizing the sensors is an important problem. Anchor nodes with known positions are used for sensor localization. A simple and efficient way of generating anchor nodes is to use mobile anchors which have built-in GPS units. In this thesis, a single mobile anchor is used to traverse the region of interest to communicate with the sensor nodes and identify their positions. Therefore planning the best trajectory for th...
