Abstract: Filter bank multi-carrier (FBMC) with offset quadrature amplitude modulation (OQAM) has been regarded as one of the candidates for next generation broadband wireless communication systems. Being a multi-carrier technique, FBMC suffers from the inherent drawback of high peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR). And it has been turned out that conventional PAPR reduction schemes for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems are ineffective for FBMC-OQAM systems, due to the overlapping structure of FBMC-OQAM signals. In this paper, we propose an efficient PAPR reduction scheme based on a two-step optimization structure, named pretreated partial transmit sequence (P-PTS). The first step uses a multiple overlapping symbols joint optimization scheme that the phase rotation sequences for current symbol is determined and optimized according to previous overlapped symbols. And in the second step, it employs a novel segment PAPR reduction scheme based on PTS technique. Simulation results indicate that the proposed P-PTS scheme can achieve better PAPR reduction performance than conventional methods with lower computational complexity and the complexity can be traded off more flexibly with PAPR reduction performance.
