Owing to the susceptibility to the peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) on orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems, the authors introduce a novel approach based on turbo coding to improve OFDM (PAPR) performance. In the paper, it is shown that even for different types of modulation methods and coding rates, the technique is still applicable and gives better performance comparing to the conventional techniques being used (such as the clipping technique and the partial transmit sequence (PTS) technique).
