Constant Modulus Algorithm for Peak-to-Average Power Ratio (PAPR) Reduction in MIMO OFDM/A
Abstract—A new peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) reduction approach for MIMO-OFDM/A is developed based on the well-known constant modulus algorithm (CMA). This combines two ideas:< Final Year Projects > 1) time domain signals from “resource blocks” (consisting of several subcarriers) may be linearly combined using precoding weights, transparent to the receiver; 2) the precoding weights can be designed to minimize the modulus variations of the resulting signal, leading generally to a reduction in PAPR. This technique is compatible with various beamforming modes in single antenna and MIMO systems. Simulation results show a noticeable improvement relative to the Partial Transmit Sequences (PTS) technique with significantly less complexity.
