Performance of Using RLE for PAPR Reduction in OFDM System

Filbert H. Juwono, Ajib. S. Arifin, and Dadang Gunawan

Abstract—Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) in its position as the popular technique for future communication has several drawbacks. High peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) is one of the concerns. We propose the use of run-length encoding (RLE) to reduce the PAPR and also to maintain the system’s performance. The results show that the PAPR can be reduced significantly of about 3 dB and the performance is the same with the original system.

Index Terms—OFDM, PAPR, RLE.
