In this paper, we exploit cooperative spectrum sensing technique for applications in a relay based cognitive radio network. Relays are assigned in cognitive radio networks to transmit the primary user's signal to a cognitive coordinator. This research is focused on the detection of primary user in single or multiple cognitive relay scenarios. The performance of energy detector is analyzed for independent Rayleigh fading channels. False alarm and detection probabilities are derived theoretically with or without direct communication between the primary user and the cognitive coordinator. An upper bound is also given for detection probability. Our analysis is validated by numerical and simulation results.
