In recent years application of Neural Network (NN) algorithms in both target tracking problem and DoA estimation have become popular because of the increased computational efficiency This paper presents the implementation of modified neural network algorithm(MN-MUST) to the uniform circular dipole array in the presence of mutual coupling. In smart antenna systems, mutual coupling between elements can significantly degrade the processing algorithms. In this paper mutual coupling affects on MN-MUST has been investigated. MN-MUST algorithm applied to the Uniform Circular Array (UCA) geometry for first time. The validity of MN-MUST algorithm in the presence of mutual coupling has been proved for UCA. Simulation results of MN-MUST algorithm are provided for UCA. The presence of mutual coupling degraded the MN-MUST algorithm performed in the absence of mutual coupling, as expected.


A hybrid genetic algorithm for the discrete time-cost trade-off problem
Sönmez, Rifat (2012-10-01)
In this paper we present a hybrid strategy developed using genetic algorithms (GAs), simulated annealing (SA), and quantum simulated annealing techniques (QSA) for the discrete time-cost trade-off problem (DTCTP). In the hybrid algorithm (HA), SA is used to improve hill-climbing ability of GA. In addition to SA, the hybrid strategy includes QSA to achieve enhanced local search capability. The HA and a sole GA have been coded in Visual C++ on a personal computer. Ten benchmark test problems with a range of 1...
A low-power robust humidity sensor in a standard CMOS process
Okcan, Burak; Akın, Tayfun (2007-11-01)
This paper presents a low-cost thermal-conductivity-based humidity sensor implemented using a 0.6-mu m CMOS process, where suspended p-n junction diodes are used as the humidity-sensitive elements. The measurement method uses the difference between the thermal conductivities of air and water vapor at high temperatures by comparing the output voltages of two hea ted and thermally isolated diodes; one of which is exposed to the environment and has a humidity-dependent thermal conductance, while the other is s...
A nested iterative scheme for computation of incompressible flows in long domains
Manguoğlu, Murat; Tezduyar, Tayfun E.; Sathe, Sunil (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2008-12-01)
We present an effective preconditioning technique for solving the nonsymmetric linear systems encountered in computation of incompressible flows in long domains. The application category we focus on is arterial fluid mechanics. These linear systems are solved using a nested iterative scheme with an outer Richardson scheme and an inner iteration that is handled via a Krylov subspace method. Test computations that demonstrate the robustness of our nested scheme are presented.
An adaptive, energy-aware and distributed fault-tolerant topology-control algorithm for heterogeneous wireless sensor networks
Deniz, Fatih; Bagci, Hakki; KÖRPEOĞLU, İBRAHİM; Yazıcı, Adnan (2016-07-01)
This paper introduces an adaptive, energy-aware and distributed fault-tolerant topology control algorithm, namely the Adaptive Disjoint Path Vector (ADPV) algorithm, for heterogeneous wireless sensor networks. In this heterogeneous model, we have resource-rich supernodes as well as ordinary sensor nodes that are supposed to be connected to the supernodes. Unlike the static alternative Disjoint Path Vector (DPV) algorithm, the focus of ADPV is to secure supernode connectivity in the presence of node failures...
A temporal neural network model for constructing connectionist expert system knowledge bases
Alpaslan, Ferda Nur (Elsevier BV, 1996-04-01)
This paper introduces a temporal feedforward neural network model that can be applied to a number of neural network application areas, including connectionist expert systems. The neural network model has a multi-layer structure, i.e. the number of layers is not limited. Also, the model has the flexibility of defining output nodes in any layer. This is especially important for connectionist expert system applications.
