On the Performance of Decode-and-Forward Half-Duplex Relaying with Time Switching Based Energy Harvesting in the Condition of Hardware Impairment
In this paper, the outage performance and system throughput of a decode-and-forward half-duplex relay network, in which the relay node is equipped with time switching based energy harvesting capability, are derived rigorously. The analytical results provide theoretical insights into the effect of various system parameters, such as time switching factor, source transmission rate, transmitting-power-to-noise ratio to system performance. Our analysis is confirmed by Monte-Carlo simulation, and can serve as a guideline to design practical energy-harvested relaying systems.
