TITLE: REDUCING THE PEAK TO AVERAGE POWER RATIO OF MIMO-OFDM USING PSO BASED PTS. MAJOR PROFESSOR: Dr. Garth V. Crosby, In this thesis we proposed PSO based PTS to accomplish the lowest Peak-to-Average Power Ratio of MIMO-OFDM system. We applied the PSO based PTS on each antenna of the system in order to find the optimal phase factors which is a straightforward method to get the minimum PAPR in such a system. The performance of PSO based PTS algorithm in MIMO-OFDM with a wide range of phase factor tends to give a high performance according to the simulation results. In addition, there is no need to increase the number of particles of the PSO algorithm to enhance the performance of the system, which keeps the complexity of finding the minimum PAPR reasonable.
