In this paper, we present a novel generalization of the graph Fourier transform (GFT). Our approach is based on separately considering the definitions of signal energy and signal variation, leading to several possible orthonormal GFTs. Our approach includes traditional definitions of the GFT as special cases, while also leading to new GFT designs that are better at taking into account the irregular nature of the graph. As an illustration, in the context of sensor networks we use the Voronoi
