OFDM is the most efficient methods for the transfer of high to low data rate in the wireless communication system. It has ‘N’ number of advantages namely immune to multi fading, lesser inter symbol interference and high spectral efficiency. Despite the hyp, OFDM also has the disadvantage of having a very high PAPR i.e. PAPR ratio. In the view of reducing PAPR, clipping and filtering system is commonly employed and the reduction of PAPR is observed by varying clipping levels and symbol size.
