Non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) based wireless caching network (WCN) is considered as a promising technology for next-generation wireless communications since it can significantly improve the spectral efficiency. In this letter, we propose a quality of service (QoS)-oriented dynamic power allocation strategy for NOMA-WCN. In content placement phase, base station (BS) sends multiple files to helpers by allocating different powers according to the different QoS targets of files, for ensuring that all helpers can successfully decode the two most popular files. In content delivery phase, helpers serve two users at the same time by allocating the minimum power to far user according to the QoS requirement, and then all the remaining power is allocated to near user. Hence, our proposed method is able to increase the hit probability and drop the outage probability compared with conventional methods. Simulation results confirm that the proposed power allocation method can significantly improve the caching hit probability and reduce the user outage probability.
