This research is on the analysis and
modelling of power consumption in a base transceiver
station. For the purpose of this research, two base
transceiver stations in Benin (BEN) were visited and
data were collected and analysed: Ugbor station
referred to as BEN035 (site A) and Benson Idahosa
University referred to as BEN198 (site B). Analysis was
made on AC power consumption and its Matlab plot.
The model of Base station instantaneous DC power
consumption for high and low traffic global system of
mobile communication (GSM) usage was carried out by
Matlab software to show how power is been consumed
in a Base transceiver Station (BTS) and for future
Keywords : Base transceiver station, modelling, power consumption, Forecast, Matlab software and telecommunication.
