Unformatted text preview: 1 + βi pi ), where αi and βi are positive parameters that characterize link i. The second objective (which we want to minimize) is P = 1T p, the total (transmit) power. (a) Explain how to find the optimal trade-off curve of total utility and total power, using convex or quasiconvex optimization. √ (b) Plot the optimal trade-off curve for the problem instance with m = 20, n = 10, Uj (x) = x for j = 1, . . . , n, pmax = 10, αi = βi = 1 for i = 1, . . . , m, and network topology generated i using rand(’seed’,3); R = round(rand(m,n)); Your plot should have the total power on the horizontal axis. 16.9 Energy storage trade-offs. We consider the use of a storage device (say, a battery) to reduce the total cost of electricity consumed over one day. We divide the day into T time periods, and let pt denote the (positive, time-varying) electricity price, and ut denote the (nonnegative) usage or consumption, in period t, for t = 1, . . . , T . Without the use of a battery, the total cost is pT u. Let qt denote the (nonnegative) e...
