This letter presents an optimal user selection algorithm that provides a maximum sum-rate in a zero-forcing based Multiuser MIMO system for downlink. The proposed technique forms a primary group of users whose channel power exceeds a predetermined threshold. Through computer simulations, we have found that the proposed method outperforms the conventional technique yielding a sum rate that is 0.33 bps/Hz higher when the transmit SNR is 10 dB and the total number of users and transmit antennas in the cell is 100 and 4, respectively.
