OFDM has been proved to be an efficient and promising multicarrier modulation technique for high data rate modern communication systems. However, it has some limitations such as high PAPR, phase-noise and carrier frequency offset. In this paper, wavelet transform has been used to design an OFDM system and its performance is compared with conventional FFT-OFDM. The simulation results show that the DWT-OFDM outperforms the FFT-OFDM. Further, the proposed DWT-OFDM is applied to Digital Video Broadcasting system (DVB) for terrestrial mode.
