In this paper an analytical framework is introduced for the optimization of TCP performance through joint channel coding and transmission power management in satellite communications, where both energy and bandwidth are scarce and costly resources. More specifically, the analysis takes into account the use of Low-Density Parity-Check (LDPC) codes as coding scheme for high data rate satellite communications. The analytical framework allows for the evaluation of the transmission power and coding rate that maximize the TCP throughput per unitary cost, which is a metric defined in terms of energy cost and bandwidth cost when related to throughput. Numerical examples demonstrate the usability of the proposed framework.
