Performance Enhancement Using Power Control Algorithm For UASNS

In underwater acoustic sensor networks (UASNs), in which several transmitters with the same power send data to the sink. Then, the sink will collect more interference since of the slow- fading of signal, because of this, a higher outage probability and high energy consumption occurs. The Power control (PC) algorithm can investigate the accumulative interference of randomly deploying nodes by constructing the network model and can reduce this interference by changing the power control factor (k). Therefore, the power control method can successfully reduce the outage probability, and improve the transmission capacity. The simulation results display that the proposed algorithm can effectually reduce the outage probability by 19.04%, and the transmission capacity is improved by 17.64%.
