1. A method comprising:

  • using a processor to initialize for i=0 a first power control adjustment state g(i) for an uplink control channel and a second power control adjustment state f(i) for an uplink shared channel to each reflect an open loop power control error;

    using the processor to compute an initial transmit power for the uplink shared channel using full path loss compensation, wherein the initial transmit power depends on a preamble power of a first message sent on an access channel and the second power control adjustment state f(0); and

    sending from a transmitter a third message on the uplink shared channel at the initial transmit power;

    wherein the second power control adjustment state f(i) for i=0 is initialized as;






    in which;



    PUSCH is a power control constant for the uplink shared channel that is specific for a user equipment executing the method;


    Prampup is a ramp-up power for preamble transmissions; and


    PPC is a power control command indicated in a second message that is received in response to sending the first message.
