    Abstract

    In this paper, a cooperative non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) network is considered, where a source communicates with two users through an energy harvesting relay. The impact of two types of NOMA power allocation policies, namely NOMA with fixed power allocation (F-NOMA) and cognitive radio inspired NOMA (CR-NOMA), on the considered cooperative simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT) system is investigated. In particular, closed-form expressions for the outage probability and their high SNR approximations are derived to characterize the performance of SWIPT-F-NOMA and SWIPT-CR-NOMA. These developed analytical results demonstrate that the two power allocation policies realize different tradeoffs between the reception reliability, user fairness and system complexity. Compared with the conventional SWIPT relaying networks with orthogonal multiple access (OMA), the proposed NOMA schemes can effectively reduce the outage probability, although all of them realize the same diversity gain.
