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 antenna and feed parameters on the input impedance characteristics are investigated through EM simulations. Then a dual polarized antenna is considered and the effects of antenna parameters on the radiation performance (i.e. isolation) is explored. In the light of these observations, guidelines for the design of dual polarized wideband patch antennas excited with elevated wide strips is presented. To demonstrate the usage of these guidelines an antenna, which operates in a different frequency band, is designed by following the steps of the proposed design procedure. Finally, the input impedance and radiation pattern measurements of a two element antenna array that was previously designed as a base station antenna are performed. Simulation and measurement results are compared and discussed. The EM simulations are performed by a Finite Element based full-wave analysis software HFSS by Ansys.

Modelling and analysis of vertical handover in highly mobile environments
Kirsal, Yonal; Ever, Enver; Koçyiğit, Altan; Gemikonakli, Orhan; Mapp, Glenford (2015-12-01)
Various types of wireless networks have been developed and deployed including 3G, WLAN, WiMAX, LTE and LTE Advanced. User connectivity and network performance can be improved using vertical handover techniques which involve switching between available networks in heterogeneous environments. In this respect, recently there has been an increased interest in the integration of cellular and WLAN systems. In this study, the integrated heterogeneous wireless systems are modelled using two-stage open queuing syste...
Base station power optimization for green networks using reinforcement learning
Aktaş, Semih; Alemdar, Hande; Department of Computer Engineering (2019)
The next generation mobile networks have to provide high data rates, extremely low latency, and support high connection density. To meet these requirements, the number of base stations will have to increase and this increase will lead to an energy consumption issue. Therefore ``green'' approaches to the network operation will gain importance. Reducing the energy consumption of base stations is essential for going green and also it helps service providers to reduce operational expenses. However, achieving en...
A turbo detection scheme for EGPRS
Başköy (Gülmez), Ülkü; Baykal, Buyurman; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2003)
Enhanced Data Rates for Global Evolution (EDGE) is one of the 3G wireless communication standards, which provides higher data rates by adopting 8-PSK modulation in TDMA system infrastructure of GSM. In this thesis, a turbo detection receiver for Enhanced General Packet Radio Services (EGPRS) system, which is the packet switching mode of EDGE, is studied. In turbo detection, equalization and channel decoding are performed iteratively. Due to 8-ary alphabet of EGPRS modulation, full state trellis based equali...
High data rate X-band transmitter for low Earth orbit satellites
Sunay, Hacer K.; Ismailoglu, Neslin; Kirilmaz, Tunahan; Dudak, Celal; Sen, Ozlem A. (2007-04-26)
Main purpose of this study is to design a transmitter with data rates up to 100 Mbps, having QPSK/OQPSK modulation and 7 W (38.5 dBm) output power at 8.2 GHz. This output power satisfies the link budget for a low earth orbit (LEO) satellite at 700 km, utilizing required source-channel coding schemes in baseband for a BER performance of 10(-6). The modulation scheme of the transmitter can be selected as BPSK, QPSK or OQPSK. In addition to QPSK/OQPSK modulation scheme choice, the transmitter will have three d...
