Minimum Power Consumption of a Base Station with Large-scale Antenna Array

Published Date:2013-08-29
In this paper we consider the minimum base station (BS) power consumption given the sum rate requirement in largescale multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) systems. A single cell with an Mtot-antenna BS and N single-antenna users is considered. The BS power consumption consists of two parts: The part accounting for the total transmit power and the part proportional to the number of active antennas. Specifically, closed-form approximations (CFAs) of the optimal transmit power and optimal number of active antennas are derived when the sum rate requirement is high. A CFA of the ergodic sum capacity upper bound for the downlink broadcast channel is also given.
