Relay Selection & Power Allocation for Maximizing Sum-Throughput of a Buffered Relay Network

F. A. Khan, Z. A. Malik, A. A. Nasir, M. Masood

Considering two-hop cooperative communication with buffered half-duplex relays, this work jointly optimizes relay selection and transmit power at the relay to maximize the sum-throughput of the network subject to a minimum throughput requirement of each hop and transmit power constraint. The optimization problem is solved and two new buffer aware selection schemes, namely joint relay power allocation and selection scheme (JPASS) and ratio selection scheme (RSS) are proposed. Numerical results show that the average sum-throughput of both the proposed schemes is up to 40% higher compared to the existing schemes in the literature.
