In this letter, we study a downlink non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) transmission system, where only the average channel state information (CSI) is available at the transmitter. Two criteria in terms of transmit power and user fairness for NOMA systems are used to formulate two optimization problems, subjected to outage probabilistic constraints and the optimal decoding order. We first investigate the optimal decoding order when the transmitter knows only the average CSI, and then, we develop the optimal power allocation schemes in closed form by employing the feature of the NOMA principle for the two problems. Furthermore, the power difference between NOMA systems and OMA systems under outage constraints is obtained.
