ABSTRACT: Two approaches for reducing peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) in orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) are proposed that are relied on a set of cyclically shifted phase sequences (CSPS) and implemented using the time domain circular convolution. After multiplying CSPS with the frequency domain data, the signal candidates can be expressed as weighted sum of the circularly shifted OFDM time domain data in the first method, which is called CSPS method. In the second method, weighted coefficients for generating the signal candidates in CSPS method are optimally selected to improve its performance; thus, the second method is referred to as optimised CSPS (OCSPS) method. The performances of the CSPS and OCSPS methods are evaluated using simulated data and compared with those of selective mapping (SLM) and partial transmit sequences (PTS). The simulation results show that both the CSPS and OCSPS methods can reduce the PAPR effectively, and that the OCSPS performs even better than the CSPS. The OCSPS can achieve the same performance as compared to the PTS. A distinct feature of the proposed methods is that only one inverse discrete Fourier transform is needed, and thus, the candidates can be calculated in time domain directly.
