Recently, power control in mobile ad hoc networks has been the focus of extensive research. Its main objectives are to reduce the total energy consumed in packet delivery and/or increase network throughput by increasing the channel's spatial reuse. In this article, we give an overview of various power control approaches that have been proposed in the literature. We discuss the factors that influence the selection of the transmission power, including the important interplay between the routing (network) and the medium access control (MAC) layers. Protocols that account for such interplay are presented.
