Simultaneous Wireless Information and Power Transfer (SWIPT) is an emerging field to transmit informationand power in IoT network through the same RF signal. Time switching (TS) protocol is more favorable in freespace communication than Power Splitting (PS) protocol when the transmitted RF signal is already weak. This isbecause, transmitted signal loses its power due to attenuation in free space, and using PS design receiver circuit(complex), the received weak signal is further split into two fraction for energy harvesting (EH) and informationdecoding (ID) simultaneously, that causes inadequacy in SWIPT system. Whereas, using TS design receivercircuit (simple) insert extra delay in the network as EH and ID operations are done in two different timedomain one by one. Literature on SWIPT lacks towards cooperation between more energy harvesting in case offree space communication (TS) and critical information transmission in case of delay constraint communication(PS). In this context, this paper presents a time-slotted SWIPT (T-SWIPT) focusing on maximization of energyefficiency in the relay based sensors-enabled IoT network. It enables simultaneous energy harvesting at receiverand neighboring sensors without adding extra delay in the network. The PS ratio, transmission power allotmentand energy broadcast time are jointly formulated as non-convex energy efficiency maximization problem. Asolution to the problem is presented using Lagrangian dual decomposition and fractional programming. Theperformance evaluation shows that T-SWIPT attains optimum energy efficiency by trading off transmissionpower allotment, power-splitting ratio and sink broadcast time slot.
