In this paper, we improve the peak to average power ratio reduction scheme for multicarrier
systems proposed by Collings and Clarkson by applying dirty paper coding with peak power
constraint. We compare the bit error rate performance among conventional orthogonal frequency
division multiplexing, Collings and Clarkson’s method, and our proposed scheme with bit loading.
From simulation we find that when channel coding is considered, Collings and Clarkson’s method
is the worst. The proposed method performs the best when the number of bits is large and hence is
suitable for high speed transmission.
