Abstract—Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) LTE has adopted OFDMA as the uplink multiple access scheme. One of the major drawbacks is the high PAPR. Not only is the performance of PAPR with PTS technique influenced by the number of subblocks and the phase vector but also by the subblock partitioning. The Partial Transmit Sequence (PTS) technique suffers from the search complexity of finding the optimum set of phase vectors. We propose a suboptimal combination algorithm that reduces the search complexity. The number of commutations in the suboptimal combination algorithm is much lower than the required by the original PTS technique. In this paper, we propose a suboptimal combination algorithm to reduce the searching complexity of finding the optimum set of vectors to minimize PAPR. The performance of PAPR utilizing the PTS technique improves by the use of the proposed suboptimal combination algorithm. We also show that a SC¬FDMA system with Interleaved-FDMA or Localized-FDMA performs better than Orthogonal- FDMA in the uplink direction where transmitter power efficiency is of great importance.
