Abstract [en]

In this paper, we study the higher-layer performance as well as the "throughput, delay, energy consumption" tradeoff problem for multi-relay assisted cooperative automatic repeat request (C-ARQ) protocols. We study a practical scenario where only the average channel state information is available at the source and relays. We consider four multi-relay C-ARQ protocols, and derive closed-form expressions for the transmission delay distribution, the energy consumption and the higherlayer queuing performance. Furthermore, we analyze the QoSconstrained energy efficiency performances of the protocols. Our analysis is validated by simulations. In addition, we evaluate the system performance under these C-ARQ protocols and for different topologies. We conclude several guidelines for the design of efficient C-ARQ protocols. Finally, a simple extension of the studied C-ARQ protocols is proposed, which improves the QoSconstrained energy efficiency by 4%.
