With the continuous improvement of network standards, the internal power consumption of base stations is increasing, resulting in high costs for operators. In response to the current widespread issue of high energy consumption in 5G base stations, this article conducts overall design, hardware design, and software design of the base station energy-saving system based on the energy-saving principle of intelligent fresh air systems. The actual measurement results indicate that introducing a fresh air system and implementing intelligent control can achieve the goal of energy conservation.
