Abstract

One of the key disadvantages of OFDM system, implemented already in 4G and 5G is high PAPR. For this reason, it is very important to evaluate the PAPR performance of any potential multiplexing technique candidate for upcoming generations. Due to the superior performance over OFDM considering BER performance, spectral efficiency, energy efficiency, OFDM-IQ-IM is one of the promising multiplexing techniques for upcoming generations of wireless technology. Therefore, the PAPR performance of OFDM-IQ-IM system has been analysed here. In deterministic approach, subcarriers are considered to be modulated by symbols with highest power and the upper limit of the PAPR of OFDM-IQ-IM system has been formulated. Using statistical distribution, a probabilistic approach has been taken to determine the PAPR performance of the OFDM-IQ-IM and OFDM-IM systems. The distribution of PAPR of OFDM-IQ-IM and OFDM-IM systems has been evaluated considering the discrete time baseband signals for both in-phase and quadrature components as independent Gaussian random variables. A comparative analysis of the PAPR of OFDM, OFDM-IM and OFDM-IQ-IM systems has been made in both deterministic and probabilistic approach. Thus improved PAPR performance has been noticed in OFDM-IQ-IM system compared to OFDM-IM and OFDM systems for same spectral efficiency.
