In this paper, we propose a novel low complexity Partial Transmit Sequence (PTS) technique employing Random phase sequence matrix (RPSM) for peak to average power ratio (PAPR) reduction in orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems. The main goal of our suggested scheme is to achieve the optimum phase sequence matrix to minimize PAPR and simultaneously reduce the computational complexity by decreasing the number of Inverse Fast Fourier Transform (IFFT) operations required.

Analytical expressions for Complementary Cumulative Distribution Function (CCDF), Number of subcarriers, subblocks and Total computational complexity are derived. Simulation results match closely with the analytical results. It is demonstrated that a favorable tradeoff can be achieved between the reduction of PAPR and computational complexity. It is observed that the suggested modified PTS technique outperforms the traditional PTS (T-PTS) technique.
