Wireless Communication has been witnessing generational change in the span of eight to ten years since it came in existence. From generation 1G to 3G and from 4G to 5G the telecommunication world has seen significant improvements along with enhanced performance with every passing year. The objective of research is to comprehensive study of Filtered Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (F-OFDM) as a promising waveform option for fifth-generation (5G) communications, distinguished by its capacity to suppress out-of-band emission (OOBE) and accommodate asynchronous transmission. Though there are many advantages but the challenge of a high peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) among new waveform candidates can’t be ignored. To address this problem, the selective mapping technique is used as a key method to alleviate the elevated PAPR trend within multicarrier systems. This research put emphasis on applying selective mapping technique to overcome the high PAPR values in an F-OFDM system with different windowed filters such as kaiser, Nuttles blackman harris and Root raised cousine followed by a proposed Modified Selective mapping technique for further improved performance in terms of PAPR for the Filtered OFDM for different window functions in comparison with the conventional OFDM system, SLM F-OFDM system. Furthermore, PAPR performance is evaluated for all the three-system using the different window techniques analyzed for both systems, both with and without the SLM technique and Modified SLM technique to mitigate the PAPR disadvantage of the Filtered OFDM system. Simulation results underscore that F-OFDM enhanced by SLM and MSLM outperforms OFDM across PAPR.
