In the practical implementation of the wireless powered communication network (WPCN) project, energy consumption is an important factor to evaluate the performance and efficiency of the communication. In this project, a UAV-enabled WPCN acts as a hybrid access point to handle multiple ground terminals (GT’s) in an uneven plane. The ground terminals will harvest radio frequency (RF) energy from the RF signals directed by the UAV and these terminal uses this harvested energy to send information to the uplink. The objective of the paper is to find an optimal position of UAV using a proposed dome packing method to navigate the UAV, thus UAV will be able to charge the GTs within the cluster using 3D beamforming method where the beam will be focusing to a particular terminal rather than broadcasting the signals everywhere and thereby minimize the total energy consumption and mission completion time.
