An OFDM(Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) system has the problem of the PAPR(Peak-to-Average Power Ratio) due to the overlapping phenomena of many sub-carriers. The previously proposed GA-SPW(Genetic Sub-block Phase Weighting) method not only improved the reduction of PAPR as the number of sub-blocks increases in an OFDM symbol but also decreased the number of calculations involved in the iterative phase searching yields to depend on the number of population and generation by using genetic algorithm not on the number of sub-blocks and phase elements. In this paper, we propose the modified GA-SPW method in order to improve the performance and to decrease the complexity. It is shown that the proposed modified GA-SPW method achieves the significant performance and the reduction of search complexity comparing to the ordinary technique, iterative flipping and previously proposed GA-SPW by the experimental results and analysis.
