In this paper, we develop and analyze several inter-cell interference modeling methods for cellular network. The models can analyze multiple interfering signals under different fading scenarios. Incoherent addition of summing multiple interfering signals is assumed. We propose an approximate method that uses the generalized Gram-Charlier series to analyze the error of the reference model. The approximate method is not only simple but also with neglectable errors. The methods proposed could be very useful in practical system design and analysis.
