Adaptive modulation and Coding(AMC) scheme is promising technique to support the demands for high data rates and wideband proposed for 4G mobile communication system standards. In this paper, adaptive modulation and coding(AMC) based on OFDM system is analyzed through simulation for single user case and compared with SISO-OFDM and SFBC(Space frequency block coding)-OFDM. The performance analysis in terms of capacity for downlink system environments with different values of constellation size under multipath fading channel is done. The adaptive modulation and coding technique is based on perfect estimation channel. It has been observed that SFBC(Space-frequency block coding)-OFDM system gives better performance in terms of capacity.
