A Robust Power Allocation Scheme in Ad-Hoc Cognitive Radio Networks
Keywords:Cognitive radio networks, power control, fairness of SUs, robust optimization
We investigate the secondary users (SUs) power allocation in ad-hoc cognitive radio networks, considering an underlay paradigm where SUs can access the licensed spectrum owned by the primary users (PUs), if the total power to SUs and the interference power threshold from PUs and the signal-to-interference-noise-ratio (SINR) requirements of SUs are guaranteed. While prevalent works about distributed resources allocation algorithms are mainly focused on power allocation under the consideration of many practical limitations, which may not be the case in practice. We assume that SUs also are needed to satisfy heterogenous constraints with different positions by taking the fairness of SUs into account. Moreover, we develop a weighted robust distributed power allocation scheme to guarantees the fairness of SUs. Techniques from robust optimization theory are used to study an objective formulation with infinite numbers of constraints. The optimal solution is obtained by using Lagrange dual method, and the Lagrange multiplier is solved by the sub-gradient update algorithm. The feasibility and availability of our proposed power allocation scheme is confirmed by numerical results.
