On the Comparative Performance Analysis of PAPR Reduction Techniques in OFDM System
Selected Mapping (SLM) and Partial Transmit Sequence (PTS) are two very well-known Peak-to-average Power Ratio (PAPR) reduction techniques for Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) systems. Both these schemes show good PAPR reduction capabilities. However, for any PAPR reduction technique, the nature of spectral occupancy and the associated computational complexity also need to be taken into account when the overall performance is considered. In this paper, our goal is to perform a comparative performance analysis of SLM and PTS techniques by considering these three parameters, i.e. PAPR reduction, computational overhead and spectral compactness. For this, we at first look for the optimum values in terms of number of sequences in SLM and no. of sub-blocks in PTS. And then based on this finding, we perform performance analysis. Our finding shows that, PTS outperforms SLM when compared on the parameters mentioned above. Finally, to explore the feasibility of further improvement, we apply Walsh-Hadamard Transform to PTS scheme and show that it further reduces PAPR and improves spectral compactness.
