Outline of the Talk:

Abstract: Simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT) has recently received a lot of attention. Compared to conventional energy harvesting techniques, SWIPT can be used even if wireless nodes do not have access to external energy sources, such as solar and winder power. The key idea of SWIPT is to collect energy from radio frequency (RF) signals, and this new concept of energy harvesting has recently a lot of attention recently. The application of SWIPT to cooperative networks is important since the lifetime of the relay batteries can be extended by efficiently using the energy harvested from the relay observations. Therefore, in this talk, we will cover a few topics within the area of cooperative networks with wireless energy transfer. Particularly we will first discuss the impact of large scale path loss on the performance of wireless power transfer networks, where different strategies for user cooperation will be focused. In addition, we will also focus on some fundamental changes in wireless networks due to the use of SWIPT.
