In last few decades the demand for multimedia data services has grown up fastly. One of the most promising multicarrier system, Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) allow large number of capacity the number of subcarriers, high data rates and ubiquitous coverage with high mobility. But OFDM is extensively affected by peak to average power ratio (PAPR). Unfortunately, the high PAPR inherent to OFDM signal envelopes will frequently drive high power amplifiers (HPAs) which are operate in the nonlinear region. The nonlinearity of the High Power Amplifier exhibits phase and amplitude distortions, which causes loss of orthogonality between the subcarriers; also (ICI) is introduced in the source signal. This dissertation is basically focused on PAPR reduction in OFDM system and measuring BER in different Modulation Technique. In PAPR reduction Signal companding methods have low complication, high distortion and spectral properties; however, we have limited PAPR reduction capabilities. Partial transmit sequences (PTS) and selected mapping (SLM), have also been considered for PAPR reduction. Such kind of techniques are very efficient and distortion less, Also the SLM is very good technique to the PAPR problem in single carrier system. This method has low complexity as well as it is data independent.

In this paper, we are describing a combine technique of SLM and PTS to minimize the PAPR. In PTS scheme, number of sub blocks increases; the IFFT block to be performed for sub blocks also increases. Simulation results have shown that the reductions of PAPR of proposed scheme is more than PTS and SLM methods as well as the difficulty reduced considerably.
