A set of fixed permutations is used in this paper to reduce the peak-to-average power ratio (PAR) of an orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) signal. For this technique, K - 1 interleavers are used to produce K - 1 permuted sequences from the same information sequence. The peak powers of the permuted sequences and the original information sequence are computed using K inverse discrete Fourier transforms; the sequence with the lowest PAR is chosen for transmission. Before the optimization process begins the identity of each interleaver is embedded into the data frame as side information (SI). SI which is critical to the receiver operation, is coded using a simple forward error correction code in order to increase its reliability. An adaptive approach is proposed for the reduction of this technique's complexity. Furthermore, theoretical expressions are derived for the complementary cumulative distribution function of the PAR and for the average number of permutations required by the adaptive approach. Computer simulations are performed for finding the PAR reduction capability of several types of interleavers. It is subsequently found that random interleavers and odd-even symmetric interleavers are performing equally well in reducing the PAR. Results are also presented for the out of band radiation and the bit error rate performance of interleaved OFDM (IOFDM) and conventional OFDM in an additive white Gaussian noise channel. IOFDM also has less adjacent channel interference than that of conventional OFDM.

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.
