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: 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.

    ABSTRACT: Physical layers of communication systems using Filter Bank Multicarrier (FBMC) as a modulation scheme provide low out-of-band leakage but suffer from the large Peak-to-Average Power Ratio (PAPR) of the transmitted signal. Two special FBMC schemes are investigated in this paper: the Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) and the Staggered Multitone (SMT). To reduce the PAPR of the signal, time domain clipping is applied in both schemes. If the clipping is not compensated, the system performance is severely affected. To avoid this degradation, an iterative noise cancelation technique, Bussgang Noise Cancelation (BNC), is applied in the receiver. It is shown that clipping can be a good means for reducing the PAPR, especially for the SMT scheme. A novel modified BNC receiver is presented for SMT. It is shown how this technique can be implemented in real-life applications where special requirements must be met regarding the spectral characteristics of the transmitted signal.

    ABSTRACT: L'OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) souffre d'une grande variation d'amplitude caractérisée par un PAPR (Peak-to-Average Power Ratio) élevé. La "Réservation Tone" (TR) est une technique de réduction de PAPR qui utilise un ensemble de porteuses réservées pour transmettre le "signal de réduction du PAPR". Du fait que, la TR ne dégrade pas la qualité de la transmission et garantit une compatibilité descendante, elle est de loin une des techniques les plus utilisées pour la réduction du PAPR des signaux OFDM. Dans cet article, il s'agit, par filtrage numérique à base de FFT/IFFT, de transformer les techniques "ajout de signal" de réduction du PAPR en TR afin de bénéficier des avantages de la TR.
