Abstract

Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) is a technique widely used in today's wireless communication systems due to its ability to combat the effects of multi-path in the signal. However, one of the main limitations of the use of OFDM is its high Peak-to-Average Power Ratio (PAPR), which reduces the efficiency of the OFDM system. The effects of PAPR can produce both out-of-band and in-band radiation, which degrades the signal by increasing the bit error rate (BER), this occurs in both baseband and bandpass sginals. In this document the effect of the PAPR in a OFDM passband signal is analyzed considering the implementation of a High Power Amplifier (HPA) and the Simple Amplitude Predistortion-Orthogonal Pilot Sequences (OPS-SAP) scheme to reduce the PAPR.
