Transmit Power Control for Secondary Use in Environments With Correlated Shadowing
In this paper, the authors propose a general model to estimate the maximum allowed transmit power of a secondary node based on the measured signal from the primary transmitter that is willing to share its downlink spectrum. The transmit power should satisfy primary constraints related to the minimum required Signal to Interference and Noise Ratio (SINR) of its users. The model can be used by secondary nodes whether or not they have full knowledge about the correlation between the different path losses. Simulation results show the high impact of the level of correlation on the performance of both primary and secondary users.
