Near shannon limit and low peak to average power ratio turbo block coded OFDM
In this paper, we present an advanced solution for the long standing problem of large peak to average power ratio (PAPR) in orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems. Although the design of low PAPR codewords has been extensively studied and the existence of asymptotically good codes with low PAPR is also proven, still no code has been constructed to satisfy all requirements. The main goal of the paper is to develop a coding scheme that not only generates low PAPR codewords, but it also performs relatively close to the Shannon limit. We achieve this goal by implementing a time-frequency turbo block coded OFDM. In this scheme, we design the frequency domain component to have a tightly bounded PAPR. The time domain component code is designed to obtain good performance while the decoding algorithm has reasonable complexity. Through comparative performance evaluation we show that utilizing the proposed method, we achieve considerable improvement in terms of PAPR while we slightly loose the performance compared to capacity achieving codes with similar overall block length. © 2011 IEEE.
