3The Peak-to-Average Power Ratio Problem 1/3It 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 ratioProblem 1. It increased complexity of the analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog convertersProblem 2. It reduced efficiency of the RF power amplifierThe 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.

6The Peak-to-Average Power Ratio 1/17Signal expressionLet and denote the real and imaginary parts of the output signal.A complex baseband signal, defined over the time interval , can be expressed aswhere is the complex data of the kth subcarrier and is the OFDM symbol period.
7The Peak-to-Average Power Ratio PAPR Definition 2/17OFDM bandpass signalis the carrier frequency of RF signals.The peak power is defined as the power of a sine wave withan amplitude equal to the maximum envelope value.The PAPR of the baseband OFDM signals can be defined as
8The Peak-to-Average Power Ratio 3/17If 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 exampleIt 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

16OFDM Signal Amplitude Statistics 11/17The 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
17OFDM Signal Amplitude Statistics 12/17The 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.

20The Distribution of The Peak-to-Average Power Ratio 15/17For one OFDM symbol with N subcarrier, the complex baseband signal can be written asFor 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
21The Distribution of The Peak-to-Average Power Ratio 16/17Cumulative distribution functionAssuming the samples are mutually uncorrelated – which is true for non-oversampling – the probability that the PAPR is below some threshold level can be written asAssuming the distribution of N subcarriers and oversampling can be approximated by the distribution forsubcarriers without oversampling with larger than one.

23Clipping and Peak Window 1/6Clipping the signalThe simplest way to reduce the PAPRThe peak amplitude becomes limited to some desired levelBy distorting the OFDM signal amplitude, a kind of self-interference is introduced that degrades the BER.Nonlinear distortion increases out-of-band radiationPeak windowingTo remedy the out-of-band problem of clippingTo multiply large signal peaks by nonrectangular windowTo 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.
24Clipping Amplitude Methods 2/6Clipping – a example of reducing the large peaks in OFDM with the use of windowing
25Clipping Amplitude Methods 3/6The difference between clipping the signal and windowing the signal
26Clipping Amplitude Methods 4/6The spectral distortion can be decreased by increasing the windowing
27Clipping Amplitude Simulations 5/6Symbol error rate versus Eb/N0 in AWGN. OFDM signal is clipped to PAPR of (a) no distortion (b) 5 (c) 3 and (d) 1 dB.
28Clipping Amplitude Simulations 6/6Symbol error rate versus Eb/N0 in AWGN.Peak windowing is applied with a window width of 1/16 of the FFT duration.
29Peak Cancellation1/7The 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.
30Peak Cancellation2/7The peak cancellation was done after parallel-to-serial conversion of signal.
31Peak Cancellation3/7The peak cancellation is identical to clipping followed by filteringSupposed the clipped signal is filtered by an ideal LPF with impulse response ofare the amplitude, phase, and delay of the correction that is applied to the ith sample in order to reach the desired clipping level.
32Peak Cancellation4/7It is also possible to do the cancellation immediately after the IFFT that is done on a symbol-by-symbol basis.An efficient way to generate the cancellation signal without using a stored reference function is to use a lowpass filter in the frequency domain.
33Peak Cancellation5/7It shows an example of the signal envelopes of one arbitrary OFDM symbol and corresponding reference signal.(a) OFDM symbol envelope (b) corresponding reference signal envelope

37PAP Reduction Codes Golay complementary sequence 2/7Golay complementary sequenceGolay complementary sequences are sequence pairs for which the sum of auto-correlation function is zero for all delay shifts unequal to zero.The correlation properties of complementary sequences translateinto a relatively small PAPR of 3 dB when the codes are used to modulate an OFDM signal.
38PAP Reduction Codes Golay complementary sequence 3/7For this case of 16 channels, the PAPR is reduced by approximately 9 dB in comparison with the uncoded case.(a) Square root of PAPR for a 16 channelOFDM signal, modulated with the sameinitial phase for all subcarrier((b) Square root of PAPR for a 16 channelOFDM signal, modulated with acomplementary code.
39PAP Reduction Codes Linear block code 4/7Linear block code[17,18]A block coding scheme provides error correction capability, and also achieves the minimum PAPR for the OFDM system utilizing QPSK modulation and 4 subcarriers.Block coding approach : by selecting only those codewords with small PAPR. Well-designed block codes provide error correction capability.

43Symbol Scrambling1/10The 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 techniquesAdaptive subcarrier selectionWith the subcarrier allocation schemeSelected 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.
