Zero-forcing Oriented Power Minimization for Multi-cell MISO-NOMA Systems: A Joint User Grouping, Beamforming and Power Control Perspective

Abstract : Future wireless communication systems have been imposed high requirement on power efficiency for operator's profitability as well as to alleviate information and communication technology (ICT) global carbon emission. To meet these challenges, the power consumption minimization problem for a generic multi-cell multiple input and single output non-orthogonal multiple access (MISO-NOMA) system is studied in this work. The associated joint user grouping, beamforming (BF) and power control problem is a mixed integer non-convex programming problem, which is tackled by an iterative distributed methodology. Towards this end, the near-optimal zero-forcing (ZF) BF is leveraged, wherein the semiorthogonal user selection (SUS) strategy is applied to select BF users. Based on these, the BF vectors and BF users are determined for each cell using only local information. Then, two distributed user grouping strategies are proposed. The first one, called channel condition based user clustering (CCUC), performs user grouping in each cell based on the channel conditions. This is conducted independently of the power control part and has low computational complexity. Another algorithm, called power consumption based user clustering (PCUC), uses both the channel conditions and inter-cell interference information to minimize each cell's power consumption. In contrary to CCUC, PCUC is optimized jointly with the power control. Finally, with the obtained user grouping and BF vectors, the resultant power allocation problem is optimally solved via an iterative algorithm, whose convergence is mathematically proven given that the problem is feasible. We perform Monte-Carlo simulation and numerical results show that the proposed resource management methods outperform various conventional MISO schemes and the non-clustered MISO-NOMA strategy in several aspects, including power consumption, outage probability, energy efficiency, and connectivity efficiency.
