In this work, we consider the downlink of a single-cell multi-user multiple-input multiple-output system in which zero-forcing precod- ing is used at the base station (BS) to serve a certain number of user equipments (UEs).

Abstract

In this work, we consider the downlink of a single-cell multi-user multiple-input multiple-output system in which zero-forcing precod- ing is used at the base station (BS) to serve a certain number of user equipments (UEs). A fixed data rate is guaranteed at each UE. The UEs move around in the cell according to a Brownian motion, thus the path losses change over time and the energy consumption fluc- tuates accordingly. We aim at determining the distribution of the energy consumption. To this end, we analyze the asymptotic regime where the number of antennas at the BS and the number of UEs grow large with a given ratio. It turns out that the energy consump- tion is asymptotically a Gaussian random variable whose mean and variance are derived analytically. These results can, for example, be used to approximate the probability that a battery-powered BS runs out of energy within a certain time period.
