چکیده

Wireless networks suffer from battery discharging specially in cooperative communications when multiple relays have an important role but they are energy‐ constrained. To overcome this problem, energy harvesting from Radio Frequency signals is applied to charge the node battery. These intermediate nodes have the ability to harvest energy from the source signal and use the harvested energy to transmit information to the destination. Simultaneous energy harvesting and data transmission can be done in multi‐relay systems. Each relay dedicates a part of time or power for energy harvesting, and the remainder part is devoted for data transmission. Based on time or power division, 2 relaying protocols known as time switching based relaying protocol or power splitting based relaying protocol exist. These 2 protocols can also be applied in delay‐limited and delay‐tolerant transmission systems. The previous works have assumed a single relay or single antenna for energy harvesting, but in this paper, the proposed method is concentrated on improving the throughput by using multiple antennas in multi‐relay system. Two strategies of selecting the signal of multiple antennas for transmission known as maximum ratio transmit and Antenna selection has been used in this paper. Maximum ratio transmit combines the signals of antennas but Antenna selection selects the antenna with maximum signal‐to‐noise ratio. According to our simulation results, when using multi‐antenna relays, ability of energy harvesting is increased compared with single‐relay or single‐antenna system and thus the system performance will be improved considerably. Also, maximum ratio transmit method has better performance compared with Antenna Selection one.
