In this paper, we propose various kinds of energy-efficient two-way multi-antenna relaying with simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT) and investigate their performance. Specifically, we first consider a two-way relay network where a pair of single-antenna end nodes communicate with each other through a multi-antenna relay node that is energy constrained. This relay node harvests energy from the two end nodes and use the harvested energy for forwarding their information. Three relaying schemes which support the considered network then build on the power splitting-based relaying protocol. The average bit error rates of these schemes are evaluated and compared by computer simulations considering several network parameters, including the number of relay antennas and the power splitting ratio. Such evaluation and comparison provide useful insights into the performance of SWIPT-based two-way multi-antenna relaying.
