This paper considers simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT) over a dual-hop dynamic decode-and-forward (DF) relay network with the power-splitting (PS) energy harvesting protocol at the relay. The circuit power consumption (CPC), which includes power requirements for both decoding and encoding circuits, is considered at the relay. For a rate- dependent linear CPC model, we formulate an optimization problem to decide the optimal throughput, PS ratio, relay transmit power and time ratio for the source to relay transmission. Although the resultant optimization problem is nonconvex, we derive an efficient optimization algorithm, requiring significantly less floating point o..
