An efficient technique used to prolong the lifetime of energy-constrained networks is energy harvesting (EH). In this paper, we investigate and develop the energy allocation methods for the relaying networks, in which opportunistic multiple relay selection schemes with both the full-duplex (FD) and half-duplex (HD) scheme for both EH and non-EH in decode-and-forward (DF) relaying mode. In addition, there are two policies proposed in this paper: (1) Max-Min with Self Interference Relay Selection (MMSI); (2) Max-Min Relay Selection (MMSR) are depicted for both EH and Non-EH relaying modes. Particularly, we derive closed-form expressions of outage probability to analyze the performance of systems. In addition, we propose the impact of self-interference on both policies to provide a practical insight. The results in numerical analysis reveal that the proposed MMSI scheme outperforms the MMSR mode in terms of outage probability.
