Visual Result Prediction in Electromagnetic Simulations Using Machine Learning

In this letter, we present a novel approach based on using convolutional neural networks (CNNs) to visually predict solutions of electromagnetic problems. CNN models are constructed and trained such that images of surface currents obtained at the early stages of an iterative solution can be used to predict images of the final (converged) solution. Numerical experiments demonstrate that the predicted images contain significantly better visual details than the corresponding input images. The developed approach and the constructed CNN models can provide visual information on the solution of a given problem using only a few iterations without performing the whole iterative solution.

Real time electromagnetic target classification using a novel feature extraction technique with PCA-based fusion
Sayan, Gönül (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2005-02-01)
This paper introduces an efficient technique to design an electromagnetic target classifier whose reference database is constructed using scattered data at only a few aspects. The suggested technique combines a natural-resonance related feature extraction process with a novel, multiaspect feature fusion scheme. First, moderately aspect-variant late-time features are extracted from scattered field of a given candidate target at several different reference aspects using the Wigner transformation to characteri...
Efficient parallelization of the multilevel fast multipole algorithm for the solution of large-scale scattering problems
Ergül, Özgür Salih (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2008-08-01)
We present fast and accurate solutions of large-scale scattering problems involving three-dimensional closed conductors with arbitrary shapes using the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA). With an efficient parallelization of MLFMA, scattering problems that are discretized with tens of millions of unknowns are easily solved on a cluster of computers. We extensively investigate the parallelization of MLFMA, identify the bottlenecks, and provide remedial procedures to improve the efficiency of the imp...
Efficient solution of the electric-field integral equation using the iterative LSQR algorithm
Ergül, Özgür Salih (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2008-01-01)
In this letter, we consider iterative solutions of the three-dimensional electromagnetic scattering problems formulated by surface integral equations. We show that solutions of the electric-field integral equation (EFIE) can be improved by employing an iterative least-squares QR (LSQR) algorithm. Compared to many other Krylov subspace methods, LSQR provides faster convergence and it becomes an alternative choice to the time-efficient no-restart generalized minimal residual (GMRES) algorithm that requires la...

Caylar, S.; Dural, G.; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2010-02-01)
In this study, a new neural network algorithm is proposed for real-time multiple source tracking problem with cylindrical patch antenna array based on a previously reported Modified Neural Multiple Source Tracking (MN-MUST) algorithm. The proposed algorithm, namely cylindrical microstrip patch array modified neural multiple source tracking (CMN-MUST) algorithm implements MN-MUST algorithm on a cylindrical microstrip patch array structure. CMN-MUST algorithm uses the advantage of directive pattern of microst...
A New Approach to Investigation of the Relationship of VLF Signals by Using Longitudinal Analysis Models
Guzel, E.; Yaşar, M.; Kılıç, M. B.; Canyılmaz, M. (Hindawi Limited, 2013)
Longitudinal analysis models are applied to analyze very low frequency (VLF) electromagnetic waves signals. They are useful in realization of nuance of relationship between parameters of concern which change over time. VLF data are so important for the communication and determining the disturbances in the lower ionosphere. In this study, we used a four-day VLF signal data which come from transmitter stations located at two different countries to Elazi. g receiver system. A very important feature of this dat...
