Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM), widely used in digital wireless communication, has a major drawback of high Peak to Average Power Ratio (PAPR). A reduced complexity partial transmit sequence (PTS) scheme has been proposed to solve high peak to average power ratio (PAPR) of orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) system. In the proposed PTS scheme, a function is generated by summing the power of time domain samples at time ‘n’ in each sub blocks, known as “Hn”.Only those samples, having Hn greater than or equal to a preset threshold value (αT) are used for peak power calculation during the process of selecting a candidate signal with the lowest PAPR for transmission. As compared to conventional PTS scheme, the proposed scheme achieves almost the same PAPR reduction performance with much lower computational complexity.
