Modified Alternative-signal Technique for Sequential Optimisation for PAPR Reduction in OFDM-OQAM Systems
A modified alternative signal technique for reducing peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) in orthogonal frequency division multiplexing systems employing offset quadrature amplitude modulation (OFDM-OQAM) is proposed. Lower PAPR reduces the complexity of digital to analog converters and results in increasing the efficiency of power amplifiers. The main objective of the algorithm is to decrease PAPR with low complexity. The alternative signal method involves the individual alternative signal (AS-I) and combined alternative signal (AS-C) algorithms. Both the algorithms decrease the peak to average power ratio of OFDM-OQAM signals and AS-C algorithm performs better in decreasing PAPR. However the complexity of AS-C algorithm is very high compared to that of AS-I. To achieve reduction in PAPR with low complexity, modified alternative signal technique with sequential optimisation (MAS-S) is proposed. The quantitative PAPR analysis and complexity analysis of the proposed algorithm are carried out. It is demonstrated that MAS-S algorithm simultaneously achieves PAPR reduction and low complexity.
