The paper presents a new fully distributed uplink power control method for CDMA systems. The power control algorithm calculates explicitly and assigns directly the desired mobile transmit powers achieving both maximum Carrier-to-Interference Ratio at the base station and minimum mobile energy consumption. Compared with the commonly known iterative power control algorithms, the direct assignment method is easier to implement and more power efficient.
