Özet

In this paper, we analyze the impact of the small cell user density on the power consumption and the number of served users by the macro cell and small cells. It is assumed that users are distributed uniformly in all coverage area with different density and small cell user density is related linearly with macro cell user density. In the simulations, three different mean values are chosen, where the power consumption and the number of served users by the macro cell and small cells are investigated according to these values. The simulation results show that small cells with low mean value enable to save more power. When user density of macro cell is lambda(0) = 5x10(-4) and mean value of small cell user density equals to 15, saved power by using the small cells sleeping technique is 695 Watts. When lambda(0) = 10x10(-4) this saved power decreases to 372 Watts. Similarly, as the mean value of the small cell user density increases, the power gain obtained by the algorithm decreases.
