Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) is an efficient modulation technique for high data rate communication systems such as digital audio broadcasting, DSL internet access, 4G, etc. Peak to Average Power Ratio (PAPR) is one of major problems in OFDM system. In this paper, a combined Nth root technique with other conventionally established methods such as clipping, SLM (SeLected Mapping) and PTS (Partial Transmit Sequence) is proposed. An elaborate analysis is carried out by plotting CCDF (Complementary Cumulative Distribution Function) curve in Matlab demonstrating a picturesque comparison between the authors' proposed technique and other methods individually. The obtained results show that the proposed system is better than its competitors when considering the three performance criteria together.
