High Peak to Average Power Ratio (PAPR) in the transmitted signal is still a very important challenge in Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) systems. In this paper, we present a new Zadoff-Chu matrix Transform (ZCT) precoded Selected Mapping (SLM) based OFDM (SLM-OFDM) system for PAPR reduction. The proposed system is based on precoding the constellation symbols with ZCT precoder after the multiplication of phase rotation factor and before the Inverse Fast Fourier Transform (IFFT) in SLM-OFDM Systems. At the clipping probability of 10-3, simulation results show that our proposed system can reduce the PAPR up to 5.0 dB with N=64 (System subcarriers) and V=16 (Dissimilar phase sequences) for QPSK modulation. Additionally, ZCT based SLM-OFDM systems also take advantage of frequency variations of the communication channel and can also offer substantial performance gain in fading multipath channels.
