Peak-to-average power ratio reduction versus digital pre-distortion in OFDM based systems
2011 (English)In: Microwave Symposium Digest (MTT), 2011 IEEE MTT-S International, IEEE , 2011, 1-4 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In this paper we evaluate the effect of applying peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) reduction and digital pre-distortion (DPD) on radio frequency power amplifiers when an orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) signal is used. The PAPR reduction method, presented as a convex problem, is based on reshaping the time domain signal by redistributing its energy in the frequency domain, with respect to constraints on in-band and out-of-band errors. The DPD method consists of modeling the behavior of the power amplifier using a parallel Hammerstein model, and then extracting its inverse parameters based on the indirect learning approach. The cases where PAPR and DPD are applied separately and combined, are studied and investigated. Power amplifier figures of merit are evaluated. A good performance is shown when combining both pre-processing techniques up to a certain operating point where DPD performance deteriorates. Solutions to improve the DPD performance at strong compression are suggested.
