Abstract

Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) is a special form of multi-carrier modulation which is robust against the multipath effect, intersymbol interference (ISI) and high spectral efficiency. However, peak to average power ratio (PAPR) is a major drawback in the system since this leads to the distortion problem in the linear devices such as the power amplifier (PA). Thus, the PAs require a backoff which is approximately equal to the PAPR for distortionless transmission. This decreases the efficiency for amplifiers. Hence, reducing the PAPR is the main focus of this paper. One of the available PAPR solutions is clipping. In the technique, the efficiency does not depend on the number of carriers. This paper investigates the effectiveness of the clipping technique by focusing on the performance of PAPR value with different values of clipping ratios (CRs) and the relationship between PAPR value and bit error rate (BER)
