Bio-inspired energy conserving adaptive power and rate control in MANET

Maximizing network lifetime of unreliable and resource constrained wireless networks such as mobile ad hoc networks involves optimal allocation of power and shared channels in the network. Existing optimal power and channel allocation mechanisms mainly focus on throughput maximization and energy efficiency but fail to obtain a trade-off between delay and energy consumption in the network. This paper proposes a game theoretic energy efficient approach that mimics a fair non-cooperative game among nodes competing for shared channels and power level. Unlike existing power and rate control mechanisms, the proposed energy conserving adaptive power and rate control (ECAPRC) mechanism takes into consideration the constraints of outage probability and total average delay to deal with stochastic changes in the channel that improves the network performance in terms of throughput, delay and total energy consumption. Proposed super-modular game has a unique convergence point called “Nash Equilibrium” and its existence and uniqueness is proved in the paper. To enhance the convergence rate of proposed ECAPRC approach, an adaptive grey wolf optimizer is employed to deal with delay and energy constraints. Simulation results and their analysis show that proposed ECAPRC approach outperforms existing approaches such as dynamic rate and power allocation algorithm, rate-effective network utility maximization and energy conserving power and rate control in terms of above mentioned network parameters and total utility of the system.
