In this paper, we rigorously investigate the energy minimization problem for wireless packet networks with automatic repeat request (ARQ) capability. We first formulate the problem for the single-hop case under constrained packet delay and reliability and derive the necessary and sufficient condition for the optimal transmission power at each ARQ stage. We formulate a global rule of optimal transmission power control that achieves optimality regardless of the delay and reliability constraints. Then we extend it to encompass the multi-hop case by dividing the overall problem into two subproblems-energy determination for each ARQ stage and energy distribution among the constituent nodes. We show that the optimality condition established for the single-hop case is also applicable to solve the energy determination problem in the multi-hop case, rendering an optimal solution to the energy distribution problem. Numerical examples reveal that a significant amount of energy is saved by adopting the optimal transmission power and the performance gain is strongly correlated with the decreasing property of the frame error rate
