This paper studies a wireless power communication network(WPCN) based on orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) with time reversal(TR). In this paper, the " Harvest Then Transmit " protocol is adopted, and the transmission time block is divided into three stages, the first stage is for power transmission, the second stage is for TR detection, and the third stage is for information transmission. The energy limited access point (AP) and the terminal node obtain energy from the radiofrequency signal sent by the power beacon (PB) to assist the terminal data transmission. The energy limited AP and the terminal node obtain energy from the radio frequency signal sent by the PB to assist the terminal data transmission. In the TR phase and the wireless information transmission (WIT) phase, the terminal transmits the TR detection signal to the AP using the collected energy, and the AP uses the collected energy to transmit independent signals to a plurality of terminals through OFDM. In order to maximize the sum rate of WPCN, the energy collection time and AP power allocation are jointly optimized. Under the energy causal constraint, the subcarrier allocation, power allocation and time allocation of the whole process are studied, and because of the binary variables involved in the subcarrier allocation, the problem belongs to the mixed integer non-convex programming problem. the problem is transformed into a quasiconvex problem, and then binary search is used to obtain the optimal solution. The simulation results verify the effectiveness of this scheme. The results show that the proposed scheme significantly improves the sum rate of the terminal compared to the reference scheme.
