Energy efficiency is considered one of the most important performance metrics for beyond-5G wireless communication systems, which are expected to support tremendous mobile data traffic from/to massive mobile devices including smartphones, various sensors, Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices, etc. Thus, advanced green radio techniques are being proposed to reduce the overall power consumption of wireless communication systems, including energy efficient transmission/reception design, medium access control, scheduling algorithms, network operation methods, etc. Energy harvesting wireless networks refer to wireless networks deploying energy harvesting devices, where various natural sources such as solar/indoor lightening, vibrational, thermal, biological, chemical, and electromagnetic sources can be utilized for energy harvesting. Many promising techniques are currently being proposed to improve the performance of energy harvesting wireless networks. In particular, wireless-powered communication techniques have recently been emerging as a promising energy harvesting technique from electromagnetic wireless signals. Simultaneously wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT) has also received much attention from both academia and industry.
The goal of this Special Issue is to disseminate the recent theoretical and practical results in green radio technologies, energy harvesting wireless networks, and wireless-powered communication techniques for beyond-5G wireless communication systems. Review papers on these topics are also welcome.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Green communications
- Green radio techniques for 5G/beyond-5G wireless networks
- Energy-efficient wireless communication techniques
- Energy efficiency and spectrum efficiency trade-offs in wireless networks
- Energy-efficient IoT networks
- Wireless protocols for energy saving in wireless networks
- Green computing and communication technologies
- Green applications for wireless systems
- Energy harvesting techniques for wireless networks
- Energy harvesting wireless communications
- Simultaneous wireless information and power transfer
- Wireless-powered communication protocols
- Wireless-powered IoT
- Scheduling and resource management for wireless-powered networks
- Green energy management systems
- Smart grid
