Objective: The design of wireless networks mainly focuses on resource allocation and energy efficient schemes to meet the increasing demands. Methods/Analysis: In this paper, we proposed an algorithm for Resource block (RB) allocation and Transmit power control in Long term evolution (LTE) downlink heterogeneous networks. Findings: Energy efficiency is increased by increasing the number of smaller cells. To satisfy the required user throughput energy efficiency is minimized and suitable resource block allocation is maximized. Novelty/Improvement: In the proposed power control algorithm, user is allowed to select minimum powers to reduce power of Evolved NodeB (eNB).


Energy efficiency (EE), LTE, Macro (MeNB), Resource Block (RB), Small eNodeB (SeNB).
