Abstract: In CRNs, the available spectrum has to be shared between various users, OFDM has a feature that supports multiuser access by assigning subcarriers to different users. In wireless transmissions, PAPR is the key challenge in OFDM that affects the BER. In this paper, the main focus is on PTS. The drawback of existing PTS technique is that the number of multiplications of IFFT sub-sequences with the phase vectors required in it are very high. To reduce computational complexity, optimisation is performed. BPSO is used to find optimised phase vector. This phase vector will be one having reduced PAPR. The purpose is to find out the absolute convergence of MIMO multiplexing to reduce the internal phase to phase PAPR in cognitive radio based networks. Results show that in case of PTS-BPSO error reduces at higher rate with less PAPR. BER is reduced at different SNR values as compared to conventional approach.
