In this paper, we study the power control for the adaptive rate system that adapts the data rate to the channel and interference condition by adjusting the SINR requirement. The power control technique aims to decrease the interference to obtain the satisfactory throughput. We first find the optimal CINR that allows as many users as possible to transmit their data with the satisfied throughput requirements. Then we use the optimal CINR as the target CINR in the proposed distributed power control algorithm. During the operation of this algorithm, we let each user adjust the transmit power for several iterations to obtain the satisfactory CINR, which in turn leads to the satisfactory throughput. We show that the user can meet its throughput requirement by increasing the number of iterations, and once the user meets its throughput requirement, this condition will hold from then on. Furthermore, it is proven that the throughput can converge to the throughput requirement for each user.
