In this paper, we intend to study the energy efficiency (EE) optimization for a simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT)-based distributed antenna system (DAS). Firstly, a DAS-SWIPT model is formulated, whose goal is to maximize the EE of the system. Next, we propose an optimal resource allocation method by means of the Karush-Kuhn-Tucker condition as well as an ergodic method. Considering the complexity of the ergodic method, a suboptimal scheme with lower complexity is proposed by using an antenna selection scheme. Numerical results illustrate that our suboptimal method is able to achieve satisfactory performance of EE similar to an optimal one while reducing the calculation complexity.
