In wireless communication for better transmission, single carrier waves are being replaced by multi carrier signals. OFDM system divides high speed serial information signal into multiple lower speed sub-signal. Orthogonally spaced sub carriers are used to carry the data from the transmitter end to the receiver end in high speed wireless system. Orthogonality is used between sub carriers to avoid ICI (Inter Carrier interference). But the large Peak to Average Power Ratio of these signal have some undesirable effects on Orthogonal Frequency Division multiplexing system. The orthogonal sub carriers will increase high PAPR value. High PAPR will lead complexity in real time implementation OFDM. The existing system analyses the performance of PAPR reduction scheme through conventional methods. The basic idea of existing algorithm is to divide the original OFDM sequence into several sub-sequences and for each sub-sequences multiplied by different weights until an optimum value is chosen. This will lead to high complexity and also increase the number of iteration. In this paper we proposed genetic algorithm for peak-average-power ratio (PAPR) reduction and also reduce its complexity by reducing the number of iterations.
