Demand for higher data rate wireless applications has led to scarcity in radio frequency spectrum. This article focuses the power allocation for the network coded cognitive cooperative network (NCCCN). Analog network coded (ANC) Orthogonal-Frequency-Division-Multiplexing (OFDM) improves the capacity of the cognitive cooperative network (CCN). Moreover, CCN enhances the spectrum utilization efficiency. A power allocation optimization problem have been formed that maximizes the data transmission rate of the NCCCN under the total transmit and peak-interference powers or the total transmit and average-interference powers. The spectral efficiency of the proposed network is compared with the spectral efficiency of CCN without ANC. Simulation results show that the proposed NCCCN enhances spectral efficiency in compared to the CCN without ANC.
