Cooperative relaying is considered as an effective way to combat Rayleigh fading, to offer better quality of communication link or channel capacity. From the perspective of information theory, channel capacity depends on the SNR of the received signal, therefore, how to allocate transmit power between transmitter and relay to achieve maximum SNR at the receiver or maximum channel capacity is an important issue. In general, there are two types of relaying system, i.e. non-regenerative and regenerative systems. This paper puts emphasis on the power allocation (PA) of regenerative systems. Based on a 2-hop relaying channel suffering from Rayleigh fading, with and without diversity, an adaptive PA scheme is proposed, under transmit power constraints, to keep the system running at the optimum level. Numerical results indicate that with the proposed PA scheme, the system performance not only outperforms that of the direct transmission system, but also obtains the maximum channel capacity or SNR of the relaying system.
