We consider a practical power consumption model, where part of the consumed power depends on the base station or user specific data rates due to coding, decoding, and backhaul. This is different from the existing approaches where the base station power consumption has been assumed to be a convex or linear function of the transmit powers. Two optimization criteria are considered, namely network energy efficiency maximization and weighted sum energy efficiency maximization. We develop successive convex approximation-based algorithms to tackle these difficult nonconvex problems. We further propose decentralized implementations for the considered problems, in which base stations perform parallel and distributed computation based on local channel state information and limited backhaul information exchange. The decentralized approaches admit closed-form solutions and can be implemented without invoking a generic external convex solver. We also show an example of the pilot contamination effect on the energy efficiency using a heuristic pilot allocation strategy. The numerical results are provided to demonstrate that the rate dependent power consumption has a large impact on the system energy efficiency, and, thus, has to be taken into account when devising energy-efficient transmission strategies. The significant gains of the proposed algorithms over the conventional low-complexity beamforming algorithms are also illustrated.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||IEEE||Journal:||IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing||Volume:||65||Issue:||22||Start page:||6097||End page:||6112||Copyright (published version):||2017 IEEE||Keywords:||Coordinated beamforming; Centralized algorithms; Decentralized algorithms; Energy efficiency; Successive convex approximation; Fractional programming; Pilot contamination; Circuit power; Processing power||DOI:||10.1109/tsp.2017.2728501||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
