Predistortion performance considering Peak to Average Power ratio reduction in OFDM context

Abstract

Some recent communication systems like DVB-T2 standard set up a PAPR reduction technique followed by a linearization's one. So in such a scenario, the performance of the linearization is influenced undoubtedly by the PAPR reduction method. In this paper, we revisit the EVM metric and evaluate a closed form regarding the performance of both the PAPR reduction technique and the linearization's one. We choose the predistortion as a linearization technique and define a predistortion error. Assuming that the baseband OFDM signal is characterized as a complex Gaussian process, we consider the three top categories of PAPR reduction methods presented in [2] and we first study the distribution of the resulted signal. Then, we derive some theoretical expressions of the first and second order moments of the predistortion error and show that the error depends mainly on the PAPR of the signal after PAPR reduction method and on the predistortion quality. Some simulations compared to our proposed model confirm our results.
