Optimal Power Allocations for Non-Orthogonal Multiple Access Over 5G Full/Half-Duplex Relaying Mobile Wireless Networks Academic Article uri icon


  • 2002-2012 IEEE. This paper investigates the power allocation problems for non-orthogonal multiple access with coordinated direct and relay transmission (CDRT-NOMA), where a base station (BS) communicates with its nearby user directly, while communicating with its far user only through a dedicated relay node (RN). The RN is assumed to operate in either half-duplex relaying (HDR) mode or full-duplex relaying (FDR) mode. Based on instantaneous channel state information (CSI), the dynamic power allocation problems under HDR and FDR schemes are formulated respectively, with the objective of maximizing the minimum user achievable rate. After demonstrating the quasi-concavity of the considered problems, we derive the optimal closed-form power allocation policies under the HDR scheme and the FDR scheme. Then, a hybrid relaying scheme dynamically switching between HDR and FDR schemes is further designed. Moreover, we also study the fixed power allocation problems for the considered CDRT-NOMA systems based on statistical CSI so as to optimize the long-term system performance. The simulations show that our proposed power allocation policies can significantly enhance the performance of CDRT-NOMA systems.
