This letter proposes a peak power reduction method that optimizes sub-carrier phases of an OFDM signal. The proposed method doesn't require side information transmission and original signal regeneration, which are required in conventional peak power reduction methods with phase optimization, since the optimized phases are distributed as jitter around the original phases before optimization. The iterative PTS (partial transmit sequences) algorithm with a restricted phase control range is used for the jitter injection: the phase optimization process is repeated with widening the control range. A computer simulation is carried out to estimate the proposed method performance. The results show that the proposed method can reduce the peak power by 4 dB when the power penalty caused by phase jitter is only 0.2 dB.
