The peak-to-average power ratio (PAR) of an orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) signal can be substantially larger than that of a single carrier system. Partial transmit sequence (PTS) combining can improve the PAR statistics of an OFDM signal. For PTS, the search complexity increases exponentially with the number of subblocks. We present a new algorithm for computing the phase factors that achieves better performance than the exhaustive binary search approach. We also investigate the effects of non-linear amplifiers on the performance of the new algorithm, including the power spectral density and in-band distortion.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
