Since the transmission power of macro eNodeB (eNB) is higher than pico eNB in long term evolution -advanced heterogeneous network, the coverage area of picocell is small. In order to address the coverage problem, cell range expansion (CRE) technique has been recently proposed. However, CRE can lead to the downlink interference problem on both data and control channels when users are connected to pico eNB. In order to mitigate the downlink interference problem, a new dynamic almost blank subframe (ABS) scheme is proposed in this paper. In this scheme, a fuzzy q-learning approach is used to find the optimum ABS value. Simulation results show that the system performance can be improved through the proposed scheme.
