OFDM symbols exhibit a property of high peak-to-average power ratios (PAPR), which degrades system performance. Partial Transmit Sequence (PTS) is a kind of methods to depress the PAPR effectively. To obtain good trade-offs between complexity and performance on PAPR reduction using PTS schemes, a trellis structure based PTS factor search method is proposed and investigated in this paper. The trellis search is with a variant constraint length LC, 1 ? LC ? V-1, where V is the number of PTS subblocks. The method is to decide a PTS factor by searching all possible paths obtained by varying LC consecutive factors. Using different constraint length, trellis factor search PTS exhibits different PAPR reduction performance with different computation burden. The trellis search can be viewed as a general PTS factor search model including the full search and the iterative search appeared in previous papers.
