The secondary user power saving in the overlay based Hybrid Automatic Repeat request cognitive radio has been investigated. The effect of the power splitting ratio on the secondary transmissions has been studied and a simple power saving technique for secondary users is proposed. Extensive simulation runs have been carried out to validate our results.
