In order to guarantee the quality of service (QoS) for primary users (PUs) and secondary users (SUs) in fading channel, a distributed power control algorithm is proposed based on convex optimization theory in underlay OFDM cognitive radio networks (CRNs). Our purpose obtains the maximum transmit data rate of each SU at all subcarriers under three constraints of the maximum allowable transmission power, the minimum signal to interference plus ratio (SINR) of each SU and the maximum allowable interference generated from SUs to PU at each subcarrier. Simulation results show that the performance of the proposed algorithms (m2) are superior to the geometric programming algorithm (m1) in fading channel environment.
