In recent years, people pay more attention to the problem of increasing power consumption of wireless network due to the rapid development of information and communication industry. Using heterogeneous network has been a possible way to solve this problem and improve energy efficiency. Significant research has been conducted. However, most of them only focused on the power consumption of base stations while ignoring the power consumption of mobile devices. In this paper, we start our research with accurate models for both macro and micro base stations and take the power consumption of mobile devices into account. We observe that area power consumption decreases with the increase in the number and radiuses of microcells. Finally, we find it is possible to choose a certain number and radius of microcells to minimize the area power consumption. We verify the correctness of the analysis with simulation.
