3 Wireless Access Tech. Lab. CCU Wireless Access Tech. Lab. The Peak-to-Average Power Ratio Problem It is plausible that the OFDM signal - which is the superposition of a high number of modulated subchannel signals – may exhibit a high instantaneous signal peak with respect to the average signal level. An OFDM signal consists of a number of independently modulated subcarriers, which can give a large peak-to-average power (PAP) ratio. High peak-to-average power ratio Problem 1. It increased complexity of the analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters Problem 2. It reduced efficiency of the RF power amplifier The PAPR puts a stringent requirement on the power amplifier and reduces the efficiency in the sense that a higher input backoff factor is needed before the peaks in the signal experience significant distortion due to power amplifier nonlinearity. 1/3

A complex baseband signal, defined over the time interval, can be expressed as where is the complex data of the kth subcarrier and is the OFDM symbol period. 1/17

7 Wireless Access Tech. Lab. CCU Wireless Access Tech. Lab. The Peak-to-Average Power Ratio PAPR Definition OFDM bandpass signal is the carrier frequency of RF signals. The peak power is defined as the power of a sine wave with an amplitude equal to the maximum envelope value. The PAPR of the baseband OFDM signals can be defined as 2/17

8 Wireless Access Tech. Lab. CCU Wireless Access Tech. Lab. The Peak-to-Average Power Ratio If all the subcarrier are modulated by phase-shift keying (PSK), the theoretical upper bound of the PAPR in OFDM signals with N subcarriers is N. For example It can be shown that for an M-ary PSK OFDM system, there are at most patterns that yield the highest PAPR, namely, N. The probability of observing such a PAPR is. 3/17

16 Wireless Access Tech. Lab. CCU Wireless Access Tech. Lab. OFDM Signal Amplitude Statistics The time domain OFDM signal is constituted by the sum of complex exponential functions, whose amplitudes and phases are determined by the data symbols transmitted over the different carriers. Assuming random data symbols, the resulting time domain signal exhibits an amplitude probability density function (PDF) approaching the two-dimensional or complex Gaussian distribution for a high number of subcarriers. Figure listed below explicitly shows that the measured amplitude histogram of the (a) in-phase component/Quadrature component and (b) amplitude of the a 256-subcarrier OFDM signal obeys a (a) Gaussian distribution and (b) Rayleigh distribution with a standard deviation of. 11/17

17 Wireless Access Tech. Lab. CCU Wireless Access Tech. Lab. OFDM Signal Amplitude Statistics The observed amplitude histogram of the 256- subcarrier OFDM signal is correspond to Rayleigh distribution. Note that the standard deviation of the probability density function is independent of the number of subcarriers employed, since the mean power of the signal is normalized to 1. 12/17

20 Wireless Access Tech. Lab. CCU Wireless Access Tech. Lab. The Distribution of The Peak-to-Average Power Ratio For one OFDM symbol with N subcarrier, the complex baseband signal can be written as For large N, the real and imaginary values of become Gaussian distributed, each with a mean of zero and a variance ½. The amplitude of the OFDM signal therefore has a Rayleigh distribution, while the power distribution becomes a central chi-square distribution given by 15/17

21 Wireless Access Tech. Lab. CCU Wireless Access Tech. Lab. The Distribution of The Peak-to-Average Power Ratio Cumulative distribution function Assuming the samples are mutually uncorrelated – which is true for non-oversampling – the probability that the PAPR is below some threshold level can be written as Assuming the distribution of N subcarriers and oversampling can be approximated by the distribution for subcarriers without oversampling with larger than one. 16/17

23 Wireless Access Tech. Lab. CCU Wireless Access Tech. Lab. Clipping and Peak Window Clipping the signal The simplest way to reduce the PAPR The peak amplitude becomes limited to some desired level By distorting the OFDM signal amplitude, a kind of self- interference is introduced that degrades the BER. Nonlinear distortion increases out-of-band radiation Peak windowing To remedy the out-of-band problem of clipping To multiply large signal peaks by nonrectangular window To minimize the out-of-band interference, ideally the window should be as narrowband as possible. The windows should not be too long in the time domain, because that implies that many signal samples as affected, which increases the BER. 1/6

29 Wireless Access Tech. Lab. CCU Wireless Access Tech. Lab. Peak Cancellation The undesired effect of nonlinear distortion can be avoided by doing a linear peak cancellation technique, whereby a time-shifted and scaled reference function is subtracted from the signal, such that each subtracted reference function reduced the peak power of the least one signal sample. By selecting an appropriate reference function with approximately the same bandwidth as the transmitted signal, it can be assured that the peak power reduction does not cause any out-of-band interference. Peak cancellation can be done digitally after generation of the digital OFDM symbols. 1/7

43 Wireless Access Tech. Lab. CCU Wireless Access Tech. Lab. Symbol Scrambling The basic idea of symbol scrambling is that for each OFDM symbol, the input sequence is scrambled by a certain number of scrambling sequence, and the output signal is transmitted with the smallest PAPR. Symbol scrambling techniques Adaptive subcarrier selection With the subcarrier allocation scheme Selected Mapping (SLM) The transmitter selects one favorable transmit signal from a set of sufficiently different signals which all represent the same information. Partial Transmit Sequence (PTS) The transmitter constructs its transmit signal with low PAR by coordinated addition of appropriately phase rotated signal parts. The difference between SLM and PTS is that the first applies independent scrambling rotations to all subcarriers, while the latter only applies scrambling rotations to group of subcarriers. 1/10
