The filter bank multicarrier employing offset quadrature amplitude modulation (FBMC/OQAM) is a candidate transmission scheme for 5G wireless communication systems. However, it has a high peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR). Due to the nature of overlapped signal structure of FBMC/OQAM, conventional PAPR reduction schemes cannot work effectively. A hybrid PAPR reduction scheme based on selective mapping (SLM) and multi data block partial transmit sequence (M-PTS) methods is proposed for FBMC/OQAM signals in this paper. Different from the simple SLM-PTS method, the proposed hybrid algorithm takes into account the overlapping effect of multiple adjacent data blocks on its PTS process. From simulation results, it can be obtained that the proposed method can offer a significant PAPR reduction performance improvement compared with the SLM, PTS and SLM-PTS methods. The proposed method can effectively reduce the PAPR in FBMC/OQAM systems. View Full-Text
