Abstract

One of the drawbacks of multicarrier transmission schemes is that the transmitted signals have high peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR). When PAPR of the signal is larger than the input-back off (IBO) of the high power amplifier (HPA), the signal power that is larger than the saturation threshold of HPA causes the saturation events so that the error rate performance is degraded. To improve the error-rate performance degraded by the nonlinear distortion, not only the signal power above the saturation threshold but also the interval of the signals causing the saturation events at HPA should be reduced. In this paper, we propose the total exceeding power (TEP) as a new criterion for improving the error rate performance degraded by the nonlinear amplifier for multicarrier transmission.
