Abstract

In this paper, we investigate a multiuser distributed antenna system with simultaneous wireless information and power transmission under the assumption of imperfect channel state information (CSI). In this system, a distributed antenna port with multiple antennas supports a set of mobile stations that can decode information and harvest energy simultaneously via a power splitter. To design robust transmit beamforming vectors and the power splitting factors in the presence of CSI errors, we maximize the average worst-case signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) while achieving an individual energy harvesting constraint for each mobile station. First, we develop an efficient algorithm to convert the max–min SINR problem to a set of “dual” min–max power balancing problems. Then, motivated by the penalty function method, an iterative algorithm based on semidefinite programming is proposed to achieve a local optimal rank-one solution. Also, to reduce the computational complexity, we present another iterative scheme based on the Lagrangian method and the successive convex approximation technique to yield a suboptimal solution. Simulation results are shown to validate the robustness and effectiveness of the proposed algorithms.
