Abstract: Filtered-Orthogonal Division Multiplexing (F-OFDM) is one of the capable alternative candidate modulation methods for 5G communication systems. F-OFDM utilizes the allocated spectrum by having lower side-lobes, which leads to higher spectral efficiency. However, it experiences an elevated peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR). This influences the radio frequency components’ operation mode, such as the power amplifier and the digital-to-analog converter. Also, high PAPR builds the amplifiers to exertion in non-linear regions and enhance the Bit Error Rate (BER). Moreover, Large PAPR guides to spectral spreading and band distortion. Selective Mapping (SLM) provides enhanced PAPR reduction without the data rate loss and also exclusive of the signal distortion. Though, SLM has elevated computational complexity additionally. Numerous procedures have been suggested in the research for OFDM. In this thesis, a modified-SLM using Discrete Sine Transform (DST) is recommended to lessen the PAPR of filtered-OFDM. The idea of a Discrete Sine Transform is de-correlating the data in a sequence by compressed a large amount of signal energy into a few transform coefficients; consequently it provides an improved diminution in PAPR. Furthermore, the BER performance of the system has been enhanced by applying an optimization algorithm called Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO). This proposed model results illustrate that the proposed Modified Selective mapping using Discrete Sine Transform (MSLM-DST) technique can provide a PAPR reduction of about 4.4 dB. Moreover, the PSO improved the system performance as it significantly reduces the BER of the system.
