Targeting energy efficiency while meeting user Quality of Service (QoS) is one of the most challenging problems in green wireless networks. In this paper, we propose an optimization model based on finding a tradeoff between reducing the number of active radio cells and increasing the transmit power of base stations (BSs) to better serve all users in the system. The main contribution of the paper is the formulation of a multiobjective optimization problem that jointly minimizes the network power consumption and the sum of the network user transmission delay. Our proposed problem is solved using an exhaustive search algorithm to obtain the optimal solution. Solving the optimization problem at hand is very challenging due to the high computational complexity of the exhaustive search. Therefore, we run simulations in a small network to give insights into the optimal solution. Specifically, we study different cases by tuning the respective weights of the power and delay costs. This is a distinctive and important feature of our model allowing it to reflect various decision preferences. Regarding these preferences and under various spatial distribution of users, results show that our solution allows the optimal network configuration to be selected in terms of power consumption while guaranteeing minimal delay for all users in the network.
