Cognitive radio is an optimistic technology to implement the concept of dynamic spectrum access and provide a flexible way to share the spectrum among the primary and secondary users. In this paper, a game theoretic-based model is presented using the concept of Nash Equilibrium for spectrum sharing. In this model, interference and number of radios on each link are considered as parameters for designing the game. An algorithm for channel allocation among the users is also presented. From the simulation analysis, it is observed that the system performs satisfactorily in terms of network utilization. Also, the Taguichi method is applied and an analysis of variance (ANOVA) is performed, proving that the design parameters taken into consideration in our proposed method are impactful.
