Device to device communication systems places a very important role in handling both voice and data services efficiently in LTE-A networks. Power control techniques that we adopt for efficient D2D communication becomes a challenging issue. D2D and cellular signals under the same network may result in In-band Emission Interference (IEI). This degrades discovery range which result in loss of energy efficiency, throughput and hence increases the power requirement in both uplink and downlink transmissions. In this paper, a power control algorithm is introduced which greatly helps in saving power in LTE-Advanced networks for D2D communication. Power calculation mechanisms for D2D users and cellular users are shown separately. Based on mode selection, transmit and receive power requirements are evaluated to obtain the preset Quality of Service (QoS) parameters. The simulation results presented in the proposed method demonstrates the effectiveness of power consumption in LTE-Advanced networks for device to device communication.
