Modeling of time domain represented signals with multitone signals

Cansız, Gökhan
Signals in certain systems, such as the transmitted signal in a cellular communication system, are strongly time dependent, non-deterministic and stochastically not well defined. Predicting the performance of the transmitter with such a signal at its input is important for efficient operation. Therefore, it is crucial to model a given time dependent waveform by multi-tone signals, which enables analytical derivations. In this thesis, multi-tone representation is employed to model the varying envelope arbitrary waveforms. Number, amplitude, phase of the tones and spacing between tones are considered as parameters for the multi-tone stimuli. To prove the validity of the multi-tone representation, CCDF curve is considered as a figure of merit for comparison. Different nonlinear amplifiers are excited with an arbitrary waveform and its multi-tone representation in the simulation environment. At the output of the amplifier, similar nonlinear behaviors such as, in-band and out of band distortion powers are observed. After proving that original and model signal have similar nonlinear responses, modulation performance of the arbitrary waveform and model signal in a transmitter chain is investigated for different drive levels.


An alternative multi-tone representation of complex signals for feedforward systems
Coskun, Hakan; Mutlu, Ahmet; Demir, Şimşek (2004-12-01)
Signals used in wireless communication have various stochastic behaviors depending on the type of the modulation. The systems are nonlinear and analysis of these systems with various types of signals is tedious. Therefore developing a universal analysis method and representing any type of input signal with a certain model, such as multi-tone representation and modeling, simplify the analysis and design of these systems enabling initial rapid optimizations and understanding of the system performance. In this...
Interference suppression capability of faster than symbol rate sampling and frequency domain oversampling
Balevi, Eren; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2016)
Detection of symbols in the presence of many interference sources is a difficult task in wireless channels. It is obligatory to reduce the interference for reliable communication. In this dissertation, minimum mean square error (MMSE) detection is investigated to suppress interference. Faster Than Symbol Rate (FTSR) sampling and Frequency Domain Oversampling (FDO) methods are proposed to enhance the interference suppression level of MMSE detection for both single user and multiuser communication. The aim of...
A bidirectional LMS algorithmfor estimation of fast time-varying channels
Yapıcı, Yavuz; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2011)
Effort to estimate unknown time-varying channels as a part of high-speed mobile communication systems is of interest especially for next-generation wireless systems. The high computational complexity of the optimal Wiener estimator usually makes its use impractical in fast time-varying channels. As a powerful candidate, the adaptive least mean squares (LMS) algorithm offers a computationally efficient solution with its simple first-order weight-vector update equation. However, the performance of the LMS alg...
Analysis and design of dual-polarized wideband patch antennas electromagnetically excited with elevated wide strips /
Yılmaz, Adil Fırat; Alatan, Lale; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2015)
In communication systems like WiMAX, WLAN, 3G, 4G and LTE, design of wideband and dual polarized antennas are required. It is known that bandwidth of patch antennas can be broaden by using thick air substrates. The bandwidth can be further improved by using three dimensional feed strucutures that are electromagnetically coupled to the patch. In this thesis, microstrip patch antennas that are excited by elevated wide strips are studied. First, a linearly polarized antenna is considered and the effects of ant...
Diversity Analysis of Hierarchical Modulation in Wireless Relay Networks
Yalcyn, Ahmet Zahid; Yüksel Turgut, Ayşe Melda (2014-07-01)
In communication systems, hierarchical modulation is used to increase system robustness and to send different information flows simultaneously. However, when used in cooperative communication systems, hierarchical modulation is prone to error propagation, which is the most important problem that prevents the achievement of full diversity gains. Depending on the signal-to-noise ratio between the source and the relay, threshold digital relaying can be used to mitigate error propagation. Mitigating error propa...
