In this paper, we model a downlink heterogeneous ultra-dense network where a lot of SBSs are randomly deployed with MBSs based on Poisson point process. We derive the coverage probability and its variance, and analyze the area spectral efficiency and energy efficiency of the network considering three Fractional Power Control (FPC) strategies. The numerical results and Monte Carlo simulation results show that power control can mitigate the interference and balance the performances of inner-user equipments and edge-user equipments. Especially, a great improvement of energy efficiency is archived with a little loss of area spectral efficiency when FPC is adopted. Finally, we analyze the effect of base stations' (BSs') sleeping on the performance of the network when it is partially loaded.
