In this paper, we present an asymptotic analysis of the behavior of a network where the mobile terminals are considered to be battery-powered devices provided with energy harvesting capabilities. The asymptotic analysis is based on a multiuser MIMO resource allocation strategy where the battery status of the mobile terminals are considered explicitly in the proposed allocation policy. We provide some numerical results and analytic expressions of the expected value of the data rates and the battery levels for different decoding power consumption models when convergence is attained.
