need a book related to orthogonal frequencu division multiplexing and peak to average power reductio ratio using convolution codes

Can you describe in brief what you are after?

Is it like you need detailed description of OFDM or you need to program to calculate peak to average power ratio of COFDM?
well,for wat u need that????hope its not for clearing your examination!!!

i am doing a project . i need information regarding ofdm and peak to average power reduction ratio using convolution codes,and mat lab code for the same.

hey buddy ..

let me see if I can help you out with the information you need !!

lemme give you a brief up of OFDM ( I am not sure how much you are familiar with it)

You can generate OFDM response either with normal system inplementation or signal implemetation.

In system analysis, you tend to mathematically derive the OFDM symbol charateristics and write a code for it.. This will not come more than say 40 llines..

where as in signal analysis will be 'replicating ' the systems what you encounter while your OFDM signal is being trasmitted from your transmitter to reciever.

A OFDM system basically has a transmitter consisting of a encoder, modulator, IFFT . and reciever has a FTT,demodulation, decoder..

You need to be more clear on what information you are after 😀

i have to work on system analysis ,have to write matlab code for ofdm and peak to average power mathematically and i have to show that tpeak to average power is reduced using convolution codes.
thank for helping me .

So firslty ou should begin with the mathematical part of it..

once you derive the ouput symbols interms of input symbols , then its easy to assign values to input symbol and run your code to get the out.

you can do it in teo ways! encoding ie no convolutional coding and derive the t peak to average peak ratio.

2. use encoding and then derive the same ratio..

draw a comparison graph between both!

Hello..I'm Evelyn. I just join CE because I happen to see this group when I desperately searching for OFDM related project information hoping to solve my problem.

I'm doing my final year project on OFDM. I just get to build some models on reducing the Peak Average Power Ratio, PAPR.

I've built Uncoded OFDM, generator matrix model (encoder), lookup table model, and odd bit model. But those models do not works as desired. The result shown in the spectrum scope and vector scope display is weird.

I really hope whoever think they are able to help to share their valuable ideas on how to solve my problems.

hey Evelyn,

I just saw the simulink simulation you did. I noticed that there is no cyclic prefix being added at Tx and then removed from Rx. Did you do this part?
Cyclic prefix formas a very important part of your simulation to over come ISI

Evelyn • Mar 1, 2009
Hi durga,

Thanks for checking my simulink model. Ya, didn't add in the cyclic prefix because I don't know how to build one. I cant see clearly the picture you embedded here. Can u send me the model of how to add in the cyclic model?
Thanks. 😀
