This research paper is intended to derive, simulate and analyze the capacity of cognitive radio (CR) system in fading channels. Capacity being an information theoretic perspective for a wireless system plays a role in the amount of information bits which can be transmitted. As wireless channel is subjected to multipath effects in a CR system caused by fading, capacity analysis needs to be done. Simulation carried out in terms of capacity, mean square error for channel estimation and bit error rate (BER) for the proposed system model of cognitive radio can give valuable information about performance of CR system in terms of data bits handling capacity. The amount of capacity in flat fading channels and frequency selective fading channels are simulated. The obtained results in terms of capacity can be used as reference for further analysis to be explored relating to design of cognitive radio systems for developing applications for 5G systems.
