With onboard operating systems becoming increasingly common in vehicles, the real-time broadband infotainment and Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) service applications in fast-motion vehicles become ever demanding, which are highly expected to significantly improve the efficiency and safety of our daily on-road lives. The emerging ITS and vehicular applications, e.g. Read More

Networked system often relies on distributed algorithms to achieve a global computation goal with iterative local information exchanges between neighbor nodes. To preserve data privacy, a node may add a random noise to its original data for information exchange at each iteration. Nevertheless, a neighbor node can estimate other's original data based on the information it received. Read More

High penetration of renewable energy source makes microgrid (MGs) be environment friendly. However, the stochastic input from renewable energy resource brings difficulty in balancing the energy supply and demand. Purchasing extra energy from macrogrid to deal with energy shortage will increase MG energy cost. Read More

Due to the limited generation, finite inertia, and distributed structure, microgrid suffers from large frequency and voltage deviation which can lead to system collapse. Thus, reliable load shedding method to keep frequency stable is required. Wireless network, benefiting from high flexibility and low deployment cost, is considered as the promising technology for microgrid management. Read More

Privacy-preserving average consensus aims to guarantee the privacy of initial states and asymptotic consensus on the exact average of the initial value. In existing work, it is achieved by adding and subtracting variance decaying and zero-sum random noises to the consensus process. However, there is lack of theoretical analysis to quantify the degree of the privacy protection. Read More

This paper investigates the energy efficient resource allocation for orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA) relay systems, where the system is supplied by the conventional utility grid and a renewable energy generator equipped with a storage device. The optimal usage of radio resource depends on the characteristics of the renewable energy generation and the mobile traffic, which exhibit both temporal and spatial diversities. Lyapunov optimization method is used to decompose the problem into the joint flow control, radio resource allocation and energy management without knowing a priori knowledge of system statistics.

Severe pollution induced by traditional fossil fuels arouses great attention on the usage of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) and renewable energy. However, large-scale penetration of PEVs combined with other kinds of appliances tends to cause excessive or even disastrous burden on the power grid, especially during peak hours. This paper focuses on the scheduling of PEVs charging process among different charging stations and each station can be supplied by both renewable energy generators and a distribution network.

We study the relay station (RS) sleep control mechanism targeting on reducing energy consumption while improving users' quality of service (QoS) in green relay-assisted cellular networks, where the base station (BS) is powered by grid power and the RSs are powered by renewable energy. By adopting green RSs, the grid power consumption of the BS is greatly reduced. But due to the uncertainty and stochastic characteristics of the renewable energy, power supply for RSs is not always sufficient. Read More

Growing attentions have been paid to renewable energy or hybrid energy powered heterogeneous networks (HetNets). In this paper, focusing on backhaul-aware joint user association and resource allocation for this type of HetNets, we formulate an online optimization problem to maximize the network utility reflecting proportional fairness. Since user association and resource allocation are tightly coupled not only on resource consumption of the base stations (BSs), but also in the constraints of their available energy and backhaul, the closed-form solution is quite difficult to obtain.

This paper considers the resource allocation problem in an Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) based cognitive radio (CR) network, where the CR base station adopts full overlay scheme to transmit both private and open information to multiple users with average delay and power constraints. A stochastic optimization problem is formulated to develop flow control and radio resource allocation in order to maximize the long-term system throughput of open and private information in CR system and ensure the stability of primary system. The corresponding optimal condition for employing full overlay is derived in the context of concurrent transmission of open and private information. Read More

Ultra-wideband (UWB) impulse radio (IR) systems are well known for low transmission power, low probability of detection, and overlaying with narrowband (NB) systems. These merits in fact make UWB signal detection challenging, since several high-power wireless communication systems coexist with UWB signals. In the literature, cyclic features are exploited for signal detection. Read More

Collaborative spectrum sensing has been recognized as a promising approach to improve the sensing performance via exploiting the spatial diversity of the secondary users. In this study, a new selfishness issue is identified, that selfish users sense no spectrum in collaborative sensing. For easier presentation, it's denoted as entropy selfishness. Read More
