Selected mapping (SLM) is one of the promising techniques used for peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) reduction in orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) system. One of the major drawbacks in this technique is that, the transmitter is forced to transmit more amount of side information (SI) bits in order to recover the original data at the receiver, which leads to data rate loss and inefficient transmission. In this paper, a new phase sequence generation method using Lehmer Random Number Generator (LRNG) called Lehmer sequence is proposed for SLM technique. Using the periodicity property of this sequence, the SI bits are embedded within the transmitted data block for 16-PSK modulation, which ensures that SI bits are not explicitly sent. The simulation results show that the proposed SLM (PSLM) provides a slight improvement in PAPR reduction without compromising the bit error rate (BER) for higher values of an expansion factor when compared to conventional SLM (CSLM).
