ABSTRACT One of the main drawbacks of orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) is the high peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) of the OFDM signal. Tone injection (TI) technique is a promising candidate for the reduction of the PAPR of an OFDM signal. But this technique requires the increase of the transmit signal power because of the injected signal. In this paper, we propose the use of hexagonal constellation as a method to achieve PAPR reduction without increasing signal power in the TI technique

    ABSTRACT: The main drawback of orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems is the high peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR), which leads to performance degradation and power inefficiency. Tone injection (TI) is a distortionless technique that can reduce PAPR efficiently without incurring data rate loss or extra side information. However, optimal TI requires an exhaustive search over all combinations of possible constellations, which is an NP-hard problem. Suboptimal algorithms, achieving different tradeoffs between the PAPR reduction and complexity, have thus been developed. In this paper, we introduce a novel parallel tabu search algorithm for TI. Simulation results show that the proposed algorithm achieves significant PAPR reduction while maintaining low complexity.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, tone injection (TI) based on differential evolution algorithm (DE) is proposed to reduce the peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) of orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) signals. TI is a distortionless PAPR reduction technique, but its high search complexity for finding optimal TI scheme requires an exhaustive search over all combinations of possible permutations of the expanded constellation, which is a potential problem for practical applications. In this work we present a novel convex optimization approach to numerically determine the near-optimal tone injection (TI) solution based on a differential evolution algorithm (DETI). DETI is compared to different TI schemes for PAPR reduction and search complexity performances. The simulation results show that the proposed DETI method provides good PAPR reduction and bit error-rate (BER) performances. Finally, the DETI algorithm not only reduces the PAPR significantly, but also decreases the computational complexity. The simulation results show that it achieves more or less the same PAPR reduction as that of exhaustive search.

    ABSTRACT: In this work, we derive the PMEPR upper bound for the concatenation of OFDM (orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing) sequences. This new study enables people to construct the longer OFDM sequences from the shorter ones. We investigate how the PMEPR (peak-to-mean-envelope-power ratio) upper bound changes as sequences of different lengths and PMEPRs concatenate. Our new theoretical results are crucial for the PMEPR control of OFDM sequences since it is harder to construct long sequences possessing good properties and concatenating several shorter sequences can be an effective alternative solution in practice.
