This paper studies the problem of optimal power allocation towards maximizing the throughput of point-to-point wireless communication systems with energy harvesting. A novel energy-transferring approach is proposed to analyze the throughput maximization problem with causality constraints, in which we study the transfer energy rather than the water level widely used in the existing literature. The proposed approach simplifies the power allocation as a linear function with respect to only two transfer energy variables, i.e., the energy transferred from the previous epoch and the energy transferred to the next epoch. Moreover, we prove that all the positive transfer energy variables can be determined by solving a set of linear equations with a special coefficient matrix derived from the KKT conditions for the dual problem. Based on the energy-transferring approach, we propose an iterative algorithm to obtain the optimal solution with a much lower complexity compared to those existing algorithms based on the directional water-filling structure results. Numerical studies verify the analytical results as well as the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm.
