This paper analyzes the performance for an improved multistage parallel interference cancellation (PIC) technique with a reverse-link synchronous transmission technique (RLSTT) for DS-CDMA system in a frequency-selective Rayleigh fading channel with an imperfect power control scheme. The performance degradation due to power control error (PCE), which is approximated by a log-normally distributed random variable, is estimated as a function of the standard deviation of the PCE. The uncoded bit error performance is evaluated in order to estimate the system capacity. Comparing with the conventional one-stage PIC system, we show achievable gain around 60% by the RLSTT even in the presence of PCE. We conclude that the capacity can be further improved via RLSTT, which alleviates the detrimental effects of the PCE.
