In this paper, we propose four transmit power control strategies for the underlay device-to-device (D2D) communications, in which the spectral efficiency (SE) of the D2D communications is maximized while the amount of interference caused to a base station (BS) is kept less than a predefined threshold. To this end, we first propose a centralized power control strategy based on instantaneous and global channel state information (CSI) by formulating a convex optimization problem. Then, three distributed power control strategies are taken into account in which each D2D pair adjusts its transmit power in a distributed manner based on interference price and its local CSI, which significantly reduces the signaling overhead. In the distributed strategies, the interference price can be determined based on 1) the instantaneous local CSI; 2) the statistics of the local CSI (average power); and 3) the number of the D2D pairs without any CSI knowledge. Through extensive computer simulations, we show that the performances of the proposed strategies optimally adjust the transmit power of the D2D communications. Especially, we find that the distributed power control strategies can achieve almost the same SE with the centralized strategy with much lower signaling and control overhead.
