© 2014 IEEE. Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) is a leading technology in the field of broadband wireless communications. In OFDM systems, a high peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) is a critical issue, which may cause a nonlinear distortion and reduce power efficiency. To reduce the PAPR, partial transmit sequences (PTS) technique can be applied to the transmit data. However, the phase factor sequence selection in PTS technique is a non-linear optimization problem and it suffers from high complexity and memory use when there is a large number of non-overlapping sub-blocks in one symbol. In this paper a novel modified elite chaotic artificial fish swarm algorithm for PTS method (MECAFSA-PTS) is proposed to generate the optimum phase factors. The MECAFSA-PTS method is evaluated with extensive simulations and its performance is compared with quantum evolutionary and selective mapping algorithms. Our results show that the proposed MECAFSA-PTS algorithm is efficient in PAPR reduction.
