This letter studies power allocation for simultaneous wireless information and power transfer in downlink coordinated multipoint (CoMP) systems. A central unit (CU) conveys data and channel information to multiple radio remote units (RRUs) via a capacity-limited backhaul. We provide a dual polarized (DP) antenna-based double side signal splitting method. Specifically, signals are split up into information decoding part [user equipment (UE) data transmitted from CU] and energy harvesting part (deterministic data created at RRUs), which are transmitted and received via vertical and horizontal polarizations of DP antennas, respectively. Normal beamformers (such as zero forcing and maximum ratio transmission) are used to reduce complexity. The problem is to maximize the sum rate satisfying per-UE received power, per-backhaul-link capacity, and per-RRU power transmission constraints. The results are provided to verify the effectiveness of the proposed scheme.
