Non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) provides high spectral efficiency and supports massive connectivity in 5G systems. Traditionally, NOMA user grouping is non-overlapping, leading to a waste of power resources within each NOMA group. Motivated by this, we propose a novel generalized user grouping (GuG) concept for NOMA from an overlapping perspective, which allows each user to participate in multiple user groups but subject to individual maximum power constraint. We formulate a joint power control and GuG optimization problem, and then provide a machine learning-based GuG scheme to obtain the optimized feasible GuG and the optimal power control solutions efficiently. Simulation results show significant performance gains in terms of system sum rate.
