Claim of US Patent No. 9,049,700

1. A method for allocating power for a plurality of uplink carriers, the method comprising:
determining an available power for scheduled transmissions associated with the plurality of uplink carriers by subtracting,
from a maximum wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU) transmit power:

a sum of power associated with a dedicated physical control channel (DPCCH) for the plurality of uplink carriers,
a power associated with a high speed dedicated physical control channel (HS-DPCCH), and
a power allocated for non-scheduled transmissions for a primary uplink carrier of the plurality of uplink carriers; and
allocating the available power for scheduled transmissions among the plurality of uplink carriers.
