© 2019 IEEE. Green cellular network helps to decrease environmental pollution. In contrast, massive connectivity and demand for higher data rate promise the presence of new generation of cellular system (5G) and small cell networks. Hence, expectation on increasing the number of base stations (BSs), which leads to increase in energy usage. One way to improve energy consumption is by shutting down the redundant BSs while sustaining the Quality-of-Service (QoS) for each user. In this paper, we propose a dynamic structural algorithm based on transportation problem, to switch on/off the BSs in cellular networks without compromising its coverage, and maintain the networks load by neighboring cells. We use weighted graphs to translate our problem as a transportation problem and then use linear programming to solve it. The cost of transport, turning a BS into sleep mode, is illustrated as a function of energy usage,coverage area and load on the BSs. Running the propose method consecutively provides the maximum number of BSs whom are at sleep mode. The methodology explained in this paper reduces energy consumption to almost 40%, whereas maintaining all the existing loads in the network.
