Abstract

We propose power allocation algorithms for increasing the sum rate of two and three user interference channels. The channels experience fast fading and there is an average power constraint on each transmitter. Our achievable strategies for two and three user interference channels are based on the classification of the interference into very strong, strong and weak interferences. We present numerical results of the power allocation algorithm for two user Gaussian interference channel with Rician fading with mean total power gain of the fade Omega = 3 and Rician factor kappa = 0.5 and compare the sum rate with that obtained from ergodic interference alignment with water-filling. We show that our power allocation algorithm increases the sum rate with a gain of 1.66dB at average transmit SNR of 5dB. For the three user Gaussian interference channel with Rayleigh fading with distribution CN(0, 0.5), we show that our power allocation algorithm improves the sum rate with a gain of 1.5dB at average transmit SNR of 5dB.
