This paper proposes an enhancement to a previously reported adaptive peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) reduction method based on clipping and filtering (CF) for eigenmode multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) — orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) signals. We enhance the method to accommodate the case with adaptive modulation and channel coding (AMC). Since the PAPR reduction process degrades the signal-to-interference and noise power ratio (SINR), the AMC should take into account this degradation before PAPR reduction to select accurately the modulation scheme and coding rate (MCS) for each spatial stream. We use the lookup table-based prediction of SINR after PAPR reduction, in which the interference caused by the PAPR reduction is obtained as a function of the stream index, frequency block index, clipping threshold for PAPR reduction, and input backoff (IBO) of the power amplifier. Simulation results show that the proposed PAPR reduction method increases the average throughput compared to the conventional CF method for a given adjacent channel leakage power ratio (ACLR) when we assume practical AMC.
