Abstract

In this letter, base station placement is automatically determined from pre-defined candidate sites using a genetic approach, and the transmit power is obtained taking the interference situation into account in cases of interference-dominant systems. In order to apply a genetic algorithm to the base station placement problem, a real-valued representation scheme is proposed. Corresponding operators such as crossover and mutation are also introduced. The proposed algorithm is applied to an inhomogeneous traffic density environment, where a base station's coverage may be limited by offered traffic loads. An objective function is designed for performing the cell planning in a coverage- and cost-effective manner.
