Abstract: 

In this paper, we evaluate a two-way relay system consisting of two terminals and an intermediate relay. In this model, two terminals do not have a direct link but exchange data with each other via the relay in three phases. The relay utilizes energy harvesting technology to collect energy from the received signals of two terminals in the first two phases and then uses the obtained energy for signal transmission in the third phase. Each node is equipped with a single antenna and operates under a half-duplex mode. All wireless channels are influenced by reversible independent flat Rayleigh fading. Using analytical methods, we provide the exact and approximate closed-form expressions of user outage probability and system outage probability. The approximate expressions of these outage probabilities are more explicit and straightforward, providing a better understanding of the influences of network parameters on the system quality. Monte-Carlo simulations are used to confirm the correctness of mathematical analyses.
