A heuristic for maximising energy efficiency in OFDMA systems with QoS constraints

Research output: Contribution in Book/Report/Proceedings - With ISBN/ISSNChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review



OFDMA is a popular coding scheme for mobile wireless multichannel multi-user communication systems. In a previous paper, we used mixed-integer nonlinear programming to tackle the problem of maximising energy efficiency, subject to certain quality of service (QoS) constraints. In this paper, we present a heuristic for the same problem. Computational results show that the heuristic is at least two orders of magnitude faster than the exact algorithm, yet yields solutions of comparable quality.
