The orthogonal frequency division multiplexing is one of the modulation techniques widely used in the broadband wireless technology. One of the main problems of this technology is the high peak-to-average power ratio of transmission signal due to the superposition of many subcarriers. This paper presents a new hybrid peak-to-average power ratio reduction technique, which combines a selective mapping method with the clipping method. The paper presents the performance and advantages of the new technique and compares it with other existing methods.
