For indoor visible light communication (VLC) systems aim to achieve communication and illumination simultaneously, the channel capacity are significantly affected by illumination demands in actual scenarios. To enhance the system performance, the wavelength division multiplex (WDM) technique can be introduced. In this letter, we analyzed the demands of illuminance and chromaticity’s influence on indoor WDM visible light communication system based on color light emitting diodes (LED). The spectra distribution, crosstalk and noise of WDM VLC system were analyzed and the relative optimal total channel capacity was obtained by optimizing the number of sub-channels and their intensity at standard illumination scenario. It’s shown that by applying WDM technique, the total channel capacity of LED based VLC system can be about 4 times than the situation of single sub-channel, even with indoor illumination constraints. What’s more, the system performance can be improved by adjusting appropriate number of sub-channels and their intensity accordingly.
