We consider a multicell multi-user multiple-input-multiple-output (MU-MIMO) network and propose the efficient design of precoding matrices for the sum throughput maximization under throughput QoS constraints and energy harvesting (EH) constraints for energy-constrained devices in both downlink (DL) and uplink (UL) transmissions. We employ power splitting (PS) approach at the receiver to ensure practical EH and information decoding (ID). The considered practical problem is quite complex due to highly non-convex objective and constraints. Towards this end, we develop a new path-following algorithm for its solution, which just requires a convex quadratic program at each iteration and promises quick convergence.
