Sensing the existence or absence of primary user is the major chore of cognitive radio networks. Nevertheless, Spectrum sensing is the core process of cognitive radio and with target to find idle channels.Various detection techniques exist, however, energy detection is considered as the most used detector because of its lower computational cost. In this paper, we proposed a study of throughput for a cognitive radio system. We had two scenarios, in the first scenario; a study of throughput against probability of false alarm was done; where, only one channel is sensed, to maximize the individual channel throughput. In the second scenario, multi-channel is sensed to maximize the overall system capacity. In addition, different number of channels is considered with different sensing times and at different throughput costs.The performance of the network has been investigated in terms of maximum throughput for optimal number of CR channels.
