In this paper, we consider an energy harvesting (EH) node that periodically takes a measurement and conveys it to a destination over multiple EH relays operating in the decode-and-forward fashion, using the automatic repeat request protocol. Packets that are not delivered to the destination before the next measurement is taken are dropped. We seek to design an online retransmission-index based power control policy (RIP) for each node which minimizes the packet drop probability (PDP). To this end, we first derive an expression for the PDP in terms of the RIPs at the nodes. Next, when the energy cost for decoding a packet is negligible, we obtain closed form expressions for the optimal RIPs. We also extend the results to the case where the peak transmit power is constrained. When the energy cost of decoding is non-negligible, we present a geometric programming based iterative algorithm to obtain near-optimal RIPs. In both the scenarios, in order to obtain insight into the impact of channel coherence time, we design the RIPs for both slow and fast fading channels. Through Monte Carlo simulations, we show that the proposed policies significantly outperform state-of-the-art solutions.
