The performance of an OFDM system is affected by parameters such as carrier frequency offset and phase noise. In the presence of such parameters the performance of OFDM system degrades. Under Rayleigh fading environment the performance fluctuates depending on the signal strength. In this paper, the performance of an OFDM system is studied in the presence of Rayleigh fading channel. Results show that the SINR of the overall system fluctuates due to the effect of Rayleigh fading channel.
