Abstract: In this paper, Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) system is compared with Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT) and Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) OFDM systems. The channel noise is modelled with A white Gaussian Model (AWGN), the fading is the impairment in the channel and modelled by Rayleigh fading which is frequency selective fading channel and flat fading channel. The comparisons of Peak to Average Power Ratio (PAPR) and Bit Error Rate (BER) are made using modulation techniques such as Differential Amplitude and Phase Modulation (DAPM), Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) and Pulse Amplitude Modulation (PAM). Simulation results shows that PAPR is 4.497 dB for DWT-DAPM combination, 4.684 dB for DWT-QAM combination and 6.211 dB for DWT- PAM combination at 10-3 Complementary Cumulative Distributive Function (CCDF).The performance Analysis with the combination of DFT, DCT with DAPM, QAM and PAM are also compared. The BER is 0.01816, 0.01806 at 20 dB SNR in frequency selective channel, flat fading channel for DWT-DAPM and for DWT- QAM, AWGN channel BER is 0.01765 at 20dB SNR.
