On the Performance of Downlink Multiuser Cognitive Radio Inspired Cooperative NOMA
This paper is considered as an application of a centralized control non orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) based cognitive radio network. Here, a base station (BS) sends simultaneously two information signals by employing the superposition coding scheme to two different types of users, i.e., group of near users and one far user. The near users, namely, the secondary users, exchange cooperatively their own received information among themselves ensuring the realization of maximal diversity gain. Besides, they are responsible for relaying information to the far user, namely, the primary user. One potential secondary user is selected to decode and forward the BS information signal to the primary user and the rest of the secondary users to reinforce the reliability, as well as, mitigate the non-decodable messages. Two equivalent cases of a relay (secondary user) selection scheme are proposed. In the first case, the selection aims at maximizing the minimum of the joint secondary to secondary (S to S) and secondary to primary (S to P) channels’ coefficients under a certain limit of interference condition. In the second case, the selection aims at maximizing the minimum of the BS to S and S to S paths while a certain quality of service of the primary user is strictly guaranteed. Assuming Rayleigh fading channels, new closed form expressions are derived for the achievable capacity associated with the two information signals. Simulation results reveal the advantage of our proposed schemes over the conventional orthogonal max–min approach and confirm the validity of our analysis.
