Recent advances in green energy technologies have boosted the deployment of green wireless communication networks. Unlike traditional energy sources, green energy, e.g., solar, wind, and hydro, etc, is sustainable and eco-friendly in nature. However, the capacity and availability of green energy highly depend on the weather and location, which may lead to violation of users' Quality of Service (QoS) requirements. In this paper, the authors jointly consider the power allocation and Access Point (AP) placement problems in green wireless cooperative communication networks. Specifically, the network scenario includes several cooperative users served by an AP.
