Effect of Cyclic Prefix on OFDM System

Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM), because of its resistance to multipath fading, has attracted increasing interest in recent years as a suitable modulation scheme for commercial high-speed broadband wireless communication systems. OFDM can provide large data rates. Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) is one of the Multi-Carrier Modulation (MCM) techniques that transmit signals through multiple carriers. These carriers (subcarriers) have different frequencies and they are orthogonal to each other. There are different parameters which alters the performance of OFDM system. This paper analyzes OFDM system and the effect of cyclic prefix and length of cyclic prefix on OFDM system.
