© 2018 IEEE. The optimal use of spectrum is a key focus for all regulatory bodies. Federal Communications Commission has introduced Spectrum Access System (SAS) to maximise the spectrum utilisation in the US 3.5 GHz band. SAS is a three-tier spectrum sharing framework where Citizen Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) devices can access the channel when it is not used by Incumbent Access users. CBRS consists of Priority Access Licensee (PAL) and General Authorized Access (GAA). In this paper, we consider the problem of optimum transmit power allocation for GAA users using a carrier sensing range i.e. maximum distance a user can be sensed while guaranteeing the interference to PAL from GAA users is below the threshold. We use carrier sensing range to find the sets of GAA users that cannot transmit at the same time and adjust the interference budget of transmitting GAA users. We present an algorithm for transmit power allocation for GAA users in the SAS. The proposed algorithm uses the transmission characteristics and location information provided by Citizen Broadband Radio Service Devices to SAS to maximise the peak capacity of GAA users ensuring the interference constraint to PAL. Simulation results show that the proposed algorithm significantly increases the peak capacity of GAA users by considering the carrier sensing range and adjusted interference budget.
