We evaluate the performances of existing distributed power control schemes which were originally proposed for cellular networks (i.e. the target-tracking, and the opportunistic algorithms) in wireless ad hoc networks. In contrast to wireless ad hoc networks, there is no need to exchange pricing packets in cellular networks. We demonstrate that these schemes perform satisfactorily in ad hoc networks as well. We also compare their performances in terms of the achieved quality of service, the consumed power, and the outage ratio; and show that the combination of target tracking and opportunistic power control schemes outperforms each individual algorithm in solo in wireless ad hoc networks. © 2009 IEEE.
