PAPR reduction in OFDM system for DVB-S2

Zainab M Abid, Awatif A Jaffaar, Suha Q Hadi


A special form of multicarrier modulation is Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) which is offer high spectral efficiency for high speed data transmission through multipath fading channels. Many advantages can be achieved by using OFDM in addition to spectral efficiency like its robustness against intersymbol interference and multipath effect. One of a major drawback of OFDM is high Peak-to-Average Power Ratio (PAPR) of the transmitted signal which leads to a distortion in the power amplifier and causes decreasing the efficiency of power amplifier. To reduce PAPR of OFDM signal many of promising solutions have been proposed and implemented. In this paper, a joint Low Density Parity Check code (LDPC), Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT) and μ-law companding is proposed to reduce PAPR of OFDM signal at transmitter. Comparison of these PAPR reduction techniques is done based on CCDF performance of the system.
