The increasing number of consumers with diverse data rate needs is leading to increased heterogeneity in traditional cellular networks. Nonorthogonal multiple access (NOMA) has emerged as a promising method to serve a large number of users, but research shows that weak users (WU) and strong users (SU) have different throughputs. Intra-group interference reduces WUs throughput due to the superposition of signals. Improper power distribution impacts NOMA performance and lowers the total system rate. The multi-objective sum rate dwarf mongoose optimization algorithm (M-SRDMOA) is implemented as a solution to the NOMA network power allocation problems. The DMOA approach distributes adequate power to all NOMA users to increase the large sum rate. The effectiveness of the M-SRDMOA approach is supported by existing studies on fair NOMA scheduler (FANS) and multi-objective sum rate-based butterfly optimization algorithm (M-SRBOA). The M-SRDMOA’s potential sum rate with an SNR of 9dB and a noise variation=2 is 14.06 bps/Hz, which is high compared to M-SRBOA and FANS.
