In this paper, the energy efficiency of multi-input single-output and orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (MISO-OFDM) communication systems with power and capacity constraints is investigated. By formulating the power allocation problem of MISO-OFDM communication systems, the minimum subchannel transmission power is analyzed with power and capacity constraints. Simulation results indicate that there exists a specific minimum subchannel capacity threshold. Moreover, the energy efficiency of MISO-OFDM communication systems starts to increase only when the minimum subchannel capacity exceeds the specific threshold.
