We investigate link adaptation methods for energy-efficient uplink coordinated multi-point receptions. A system model for practical cellular networks is introduced, in which only a subset of base stations participates in cooperative link adaptation and cooperative decoding for uplink transmissions. To cope with channel-state-information (CSI) mismatch incurred from the system model, link adaptation controllers implementing rate back-off from the maximum achievable rate calculated with the mismatched CSI is introduced. From analytical and simulation results, it is concluded that under a certain condition, the rate back-off does not help to improve energy efficiency, where, for example, the condition holds when the CSI errors are modeled as additive Gaussian random variables. Furthermore, energy efficiency of multi-user spatial-division-multiple-access uplink transmissions is studied in isolated cooperative cellular networks. In this scenario, an analytical expression for the optimal link adaptation achieving maximum energy efficiency is obtained.
