Energy Efficiency Maximization Based on Cooperative sensing in Cognitive Relay Networks

Yaolian Song, Guangzeng Feng, Xuanhui Xi


In this paper, we investigate the energy efficiency maximization problem of cognitive radio systems. We propose to study energy efficiency of cognitive relay transmission scheme based on cooperative spectrum sensing, since empirical studies have shown that optimal sensing time and transmit power are key factors for energy efficiency maximization. We design a method that simultaneously considers the parameters of spectrum sensing time and transmit power. Finally, we conduct deep experiments which show that our proposed approach can significantly improve the throughput and energy efficiency than the non-cooperative spectrum sensing method.
