Multicarrier Waveform (MCW) has several advantages and plays a very important role in cellular systems. Fifth generation (5G) MCW such as Non-Orthogonal Multiple Access (NOMA) and Filter Bank Multicarrier (FBMC) are thought to be important in 5G implementation. High Peak to Average Power Ratio (PAPR) is seen as a serious concern in MCW since it reduces the efficiency of amplifier use in the user devices. The paper presents a novel Divergence Selective Mapping (DSLM) and Divergence Partial Transmission Sequence (D-PTS) for 5G waveforms. It is seen that the proposed D-SLM and PTS lower PAPR with low computational complexity. The work highlighted a combination of multi-data block partial transmit schemes along with tone reservation. In this, an overlapping factor is used to determine the number of data blocks for every group. Here, considering only those data blocks that have minimum signal power, the use of DSLM and DPTS are required to eliminate the segment’s peaks. Simulation results reveal that the suggested hybrid technique proves to be better than the conventional PTS scheme. Furthermore, the power saving performance of FBMC and NOMA is compared with the Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) waveform.
