Abstract: This paper deals with wireless energy harvesting using radio frequency (RF) signals for Nakagami channels. We derive the packet error probability (PEP) of relay node selection algorithms where all nodes harvest energy from RF signal emitted by node H. We set the harvesting duration to enhance the throughput. Our analysis is valid for Nakagami fading channels with arbitrary fading figure of different links.

Keywords: RF energy harvesting; cooperative communications; optimal harvesting duration; throughput analysis; wireless communications; QAM; PSK ASK modulations.
