An Energy-Aware Protocol for Self-Organizing Heterogeneous LTE Systems

This paper studies the problem of self-organizing heterogeneous LTE systems. The authors propose a model that jointly considers several important characteristics of heterogeneous LTE system, including the usage of Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA), the frequency-selective fading for each link, the interference among different links, and the different transmission capabilities of different types of base stations. They also consider the cost of energy by taking into account the power consumption, including that for wireless transmission and that for operation, of base stations and the price of energy.
