This letter proposes a load balance and power transfer scheme among small cell base stations (SBSs) to maximize the sum rate of small cell network. In the proposed scheme, small cell users (SUEs) are firstly associated with their nearest SBSs, then the overloaded SBSs can be determined. Further, the methods, i.e., Case 1: SUEs of overloaded SBSs are offloaded to their neighbor underloaded SBSs or Case 2: SUEs of overloaded SBSs are served by their original associated SBSs through obtaining power from their nearby SBSs that can provide higher data rate is selected. Finally, numerical simulations demonstrate that the proposed scheme has better performance.
