CLIPPING TECHNIQUES FOR PAPR REDUCTION IN FBMC/OQAM SYSTEM OVER DOUBLY-SELECTIVE CHANNELS
Keywords:FBMC/OQAM, MMSE equalizer, peak-to-average power ratio, clipping techniques, doubly selective fading channel
One of the major disadvantages of Filter Bank Multicarrier (FBMC) is high Peak-to-Average Power Ratio (PAPR) of transmitted signal. As a result, nonlinear power amplifier (PA) properties, considerable out-of-band and the in-band distortion types take place in the case where the signals of high peak exceed the PA saturation level. In the present study, a new method of the PAPR reduction is presented and applied to reduce PAPR in FBMC/OQAM system. Different clipping methods have been proposed and studied that are Amplitude Clipping (AC), Palm Clipping (PC), Deep Clipping (DC), and smooth Clipping (SC) for the reduction of PAPR. To evaluate and analyze the performance of PAPR reduction methods, PAPR and Bit Error Rate (BER) measures are used and programmed using MATLAB program. The simulation results show that the clipping methods are strong substitute methods which may be assumed as a method of PAPR reduction for the FBMC-based communication systems and AC appears to be the best method.
