Paper Abstract In this paper, we study the performance of a cell-edge user in a two-user multiple-input single-output nonorthogonal multiple access (MISO-NOMA) system. Since the outage performance and fairness data rate of cell-edge users are essential issues in NOMA systems, we focus on how to resolve such problems. To this end, we propose three cooperative downlink transmission schemes utilizing hybrid simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT) and transmit antenna selection (TAS) protocols. Particularly, in each scheme, a cellcenter user acts as a relay to assist the cell-edge user and its relaying operation is powered by a hybrid time-switching/powersplitting SWIPT protocol. Additionally, each scheme employs a different TAS criterion to exploit the spatial diversity gain of a multiple antennas base station. In particular, we derive tight closed-form approximate expressions for the outage probabilities (OPs) and the corresponding asymptotic OPs to provide significant insights into the impact of our proposed schemes on the system performance. Our numerical results demonstrate the achievable performance improvements of the proposed schemes in comparison to that of the orthogonal multiple access and non-cooperative NOMA systems. In addition, the proposed schemes achieve various level of diversity gains accompanying with different complexity requirements.
