Abstract
In this paper, the direct current (DC)-biased optical orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (DCO-OFDM) visible light communication (VLC) system using modified μ-law companding is modeled and investigated. The simulation results reveal that the high peak to average power ratio (PAPR) induced by multi-carrier modulation (MCM) and DC bias, can aggravate signal distortion that is caused by the nonlinear characteristic of light emitting diode (LED). Thus, a pre-distortion method based on modification of μ-law companding is proposed for DCO-OFDM VLC system to resolve this problem. With the proposed method, the system can achieve a good performance of PAPR reduction and bit error rate (BER), compared to the original DCO-OFDM VLC system. It is demonstrated that the modified μ-law companding is appropriate to alleviate LED nonlinearity without degradation of the signal quality in DCO-OFDM VLC system.
