In this paper, we propose an optimal power control algorithm with fast convergence rate for CDMA cellular systems. The new power control algorithm is based on linear quadratic control theory (LQR). Using the state feedback control designed to minimize an objective function, each mobile performs a successful transmission with optimal power. Simulation results show a fast convergence rate to target SIR with less power consumption, and an augmented channel capacity through decreased outage probability.
