Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) is one of the most advanced technologies for high speed data access in mobile communication. It’s significantly increases the capacity, data-rate etc. but one of its disadvantage is high Peak Average Power Ratio (PAPR) which reduce the performance of transmitter amplifier. In this study, PAPR is reduced by using a clipping and filtering technique for different modulation schemes like Binary Phase Shift Keying (BPSK), Quadrature Phase Shift Keying (QPSK), Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM-64) and Phase Shift Keying (PSK-64). Result shows that PAPR is significantly reduced as compared to conventional Clipping and Filtering Technique.
