In this paper, we investigate the energy efficient resource allocation problem for the wireless powered OFDMA multi-cell networks. In the considered system, the users who have data to transmit in the uplink can only be empowered by the wireless power obtained from multiple base stations (BSs) with a large scale of multiple antennas in the downlink. A time division protocol is considered to divide the time of wireless power transfer (WPT) in the downlink and wireless information transfer (WIT) in the uplink into separate time slot. With the objective to improve the energy efficiency (EE) of the system, we propose the antenna selection, time allocation, subcarrier and power allocation schemes. Due to the non-convexity of the formulated optimization problem, we first apply the nonlinear programming scheme to convert it to a convex optimization problem and then address it through an efficient alternating direction method of multipliers based distributed resource allocation algorithm. Extensive simulations are conducted to show the effectiveness of proposed schemes. ...
