The major challenge in orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) is to reduce high peak to average power ratio (PAPR) that leads to non linear distortion for the application of high power amplifier. PAPR is defined as the ratio between the maximum instantaneous power and its average power. In this paper, we have presented new PAPR reduction technique to reduce peak to average power ratio using Linear predicting coding (LPC) in OFDM system. In this paper, proposed technique show the significant reduction in PAPR without any harmful degradation in power spectral density (PSD), computational complexity (CC) and performance error of the system. This proposed method can be applied for any number of subcarrier and independent of modulation scheme under Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN) channel.
