Reducing the Peak to Average Power Ratio of Multicarrier Signals by Adaptive Subcarrier Selection

Autoren: H. Schmidt, K.-D. Kammeyer
Kurzfassung: A non-constant envelope is a fundamental problem of the multicarrier technique OFDM. In many cases, nonlinear power amplifiers with power saturation lead to high out-of-band radiation. Another characteristic of OFDM is the influence of frequency selective fading of mobile radio channels. To overcome this effect coding schemes are required for low error rates, therefore a certain redundancy has to be introduced. In this paper, there will be presented a combination of an adaptive subcarrier selection as coding scheme with a new algorithm to reduce the out-of-band radiation, exploiting the non-information carrying subcarriers. The efficiency of this technique will be demonstrated by simulation results.
