Future broadband mobile communication systems are necessary to achieve the bit rates of 100Mbit/s. Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) transmission is an attractive technology because it can remove the influence of frequency selective fading in broad-band transmission by adding a suitable guard interval to each OFDM symbol. However, peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) is very large in OFDM transmission. In this paper, we propose a new PAPR reduction method which can be applied even when unusable bands are inside the system band. In the proposed method, peak reduction signals are generated by iterative signal processing only in the usable frequency band, and filtering to remove out-of-band components of the peak reduction signals is incorporated into the iterative signal processing. The results of computer simulation show that the proposed method can effectively reduce peak power without expanding the spectrum both outside the system band and into unusable bands inside the system band. By using the proposed method, the broadband mobile communication system with low peak power and high flexibility of frequency band use can be realized.
