One of main disadvantage of OFDM is high peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR). In this paper, two effective PAPR reduction schemes are proposed. These techniques combine DCT and SLM techniques. The scheme 1 is composed of the DCT followed by SLM technique, and the DCT is used followed by conventional SLM in proposed scheme 2. Simulation results show that the proposed schemes can obtain significant PAPR reduction performance with that of ordinary SLM techniques.
