In this paper, we study a buffer-state-based relay selection scheme in a underlay cognitive radio (CR) non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) network limited by the interference limit accepted by the primary. To model the state of the relays in relation to packet numbers, it was necessary to implement the Markov chain model. The results of the simulations performed show validity of the proposed scheme. More specifically, in different relay position scenarios analyzed, results show that the best configuration is when the relay is closer to the nodes of the NOMA network. Beyond that, proper selection of the power allocation factor produces a better performance in outage probability. Finally simulation results show that the size of the relay buffer can improve the scheme and achieve full diversity.
