Abstract: This thesis is devoted to investigating various issues related to deployment and operation of a network of solar powered cellular base stations (BSs). First part of the thesis develops a framework based on Markov models to address the problem of finding cost-optimal Photovoltaic panel and battery sizes for reliable operation of the solar powered BSs. Second part of the thesis deals with developing operational strategies for off-grid solar powered BSs. We propose an operational scheme aimed towards avoiding energy outages while simultaneously deriving maximum benefit from the green energy harvested in terms of minimizing the network latency. To meet this end, we propose a green energy and delay aware downlink power control and user association scheme. The third part of the thesis presents an operational strategy for solar powered BSs connected to the grid and we analyse the trade-off between grid energy savings and the network latency performance.
