Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) is a popular kind of multi-carrier based transmission technique that has found its applications in some wireless and wireline systems. But this system suffers from several facts that degrade its performance resulting in the interference of sub-carriers. Carrier Frequency Offset (CFO) is considered as one of the factor that causes interference in the system, leading to an Inter-Carrier Interference (ICI) between the carriers that results in a degradation in the performance factor of the system. In this research work, a comparative estimation is done on the Bit Error Rate (BER) performance of Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) OFDM and Fourier Transform (FFT) OFDM in the presence of CFO in both of the given systems. The research focuses mainly on the improvement of the BER in the system. The complete analysis is done by considering the channel to be Rician and the systems performance is estimated for some practical values of CFO. The complete simulation is done in the MATLAB. As the CFO increases the error in the system also increases, but still in that situation, DWT shows better improvement than the conventional system. The BER performance of OFDM systems shows improvement for all the diverse PSK modulation.
