Summary: 
Power control error is well known for its negative effects on CDMA system capacity. In this Letter, an analytical model is developed to estimate the uplink capacity for a SIR-based power controlled CDMA cellular system. The voice capacity reduction due to power control error is numerically examined with this model.
