Abstract

This paper analyzes the energy efficiency performance of cooperative and non-cooperative decode-and-forward (DF) relaying power line communication (PLC) systems. In order to further minimize the energy consumption of such systems, we propose incremental DF (IDF) relying over the impulsive noise PLC channel. For a more realistic scenario, the PLC modems power consumption profile is assumed to consist of both dynamic power and static power. For the sake of comparison and completeness as well as to quantify the achievable gains, we also analyze the performance of a single-hop PLC system. In this respect, accurate analytical expressions for the outage probability and energy efficiency are derived. Monte Carlo simulations are provided throughout the paper to validate the analysis. Results reveal that the cooperative relaying PLC systems can provide better energy efficiency performance compared to the non-cooperative ones. It is also shown that increasing the noise probability or the modems static power can negatively impact the system performance.
