In this paper, we investigate power efficient resource allocation for the uplink of LTE networks under delay Quality-of-Service (QoS) constraints. We formulate the resource allocation problem as the minimization of sum power in the uplink under statistical delay QoS provisioning, which is complicated due to the specific constraints of SC-FDMA (uplink air interface in LTE networks). We solve the problem using Canonical duality theory. Numerical results which are obtained using the Invasive Weed Optimization algorithm, show that the proposed resource allocation algorithm not only outperforms classical algorithms in terms of power efficiency while satisfying the QoS requirements, but also performs closer to the optimal solution.
