In this paper, we investigate the impact of nonlinear distortion on the overall system outage probability of simultaneous wireless information and power transfer enabled two-way amplify-and-forward relaying network by employing three different nonlinear power amplifier (NLPA) models such as traveling wave tube amplifier, soft envelope limiter, and solid-state power amplifier at the relay node. We consider a time-switching based protocol at the energy-constrained relay node to harvest energy and information transmission. We derive the closed-form expression of the system outage probability by utilizing the selection combining technique at the source nodes over Nakagami-m fading channels. System throughput and energy efficiency of the network are also investigated. The impact of NLPA, threshold data-rate, fading severity, and time-switching factor are highlighted on the network’s performance. Finally, the derived analytical results are validated by the Monte Carlo simulations.
