Recently an opportunistic incremental relaying (OIR) system has been studied for improving the performance degradation in fading channel. However there are few studies on power control in the system, and the studies are assumed perfect knowledge of the all channels at transmitters. The assumption that the source know all channel information is difficult in practical channels. Therefore, in this paper we assume that the source knows partial channel information and propose a modified truncated channel inversion (TCI) power control scheme for the OIR system. We derive the channel capacity of the proposed system and perform Monte Carlo simulation. It is noticed that the proposed OIR system has better capacity than that of the power controlled system with direct path only, and the capacity increases with the number of relays. The power controlled OIR system gained more capacity of 29.7%, 32.7%, and 33.5% than that of the system with direct path only for the number of relays of 1, 3, and 5, respectively. The results from this paper can be applied to the estimation of a theoretical capacity for the currently operating cellular systems when they adopt the IOR system.
