Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) system has been widely used for the high speed digital communication area and it is very promising for the next generation communication standard because of high data rate capability. However, OFDM system has inherent serious problem of high peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) that makes the OFDM signal be distorted in the nonlinear HPA (high power amplifier). In this paper, CI (carrier interferometry)-OFDM system is considered to overcome this problem and is newly analyzed in the selective fading and narrow-band interference channel. CI-OFDM system distributes each parallel data to all sub-carriers in differently phase-rotated form. So, PAPR becomes lowered and it shows the frequency diversity effects. BER (bit error rate) performance is analyzed in the selective fading and narrow-band interference environment. From the simulation results, it is confirmed that CI-OFDM system calms down the high PAPR problem and CI-OFDM system is more robust than the ordinary OFDM system in the selective fading and narrow-band interference channel.
