In this paper mutual coupling effects on Modified Neural Multiple Source Tracking Algorithm (MN-MUST) has been studied. MN-MUST algorithm applied to the Uniform Circular Array (UCA) geometry for the first time. The validity of MN-MUST algorithm in the presence of mutual coupling has been proved for both Uniform Linear Array (ULA) and UCA. Simulation results of MN-MUST algorithm are provided for UCA for the first time. The presence of mutual coupling degraded the MN-MUST algorithm performed in the absence of mutual coupling, as expected.


Measurement reduction for mutual coupling calibration in DOA estimation
Aksoy, Taylan; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2012-05-17)
Mutual coupling is an important source of error in antenna arrays that should be compensated for super resolution direction-of-arrival (DOA) algorithms, such as Multiple Signal Classification (MUSIC) algorithm. A crucial step in array calibration is the determination of the mutual coupling coefficients for the antenna array. In this paper, a system theoretic approach is presented for the mutual coupling characterization of antenna arrays. The comprehension and implementation of this approach is simple leadi...
Position estimation for timing belt drives of precision machinery using structured neural networks
KILIÇ, Ergin; DOĞRUER, CAN ULAŞ; Dölen, Melik; Koku, Ahmet Buğra (2012-05-01)
This paper focuses on a viable position estimation scheme for timing-belt drives using artificial neural networks. In this study, the position of a carriage (load) is calculated via a structured neural network topology accepting input from a position sensor on the actuator side of the timing belt. The paper presents a detailed discussion on the source of transmission errors. The characteristics of the error in different operation regimes are exploited to construct different network topologies. That is, a re...
Direction of arrival estimation by array interpolation in randomly distributed sensor arrays
Akyıldız, Işın; Tuncer, Temel Engin; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2006)
In this thesis, DOA estimation using array interpolation in randomly distributed sensor arrays is considered. Array interpolation is a technique in which a virtual array is obtained from the real array and the outputs of the virtual array, computed from the real array using a linear transformation, is used for direction of arrival estimation. The idea of array interpolation techniques is to make simplified and computationally less demanding high resolution direction finding methods applicable to the general...
Attitude estimation and magnetometer calibration using reconfigurable TRIAD plus filtering approach
Söken, Halil Ersin (Elsevier BV, 2020-04-01)
This paper proposes using TRIAD and Unscented Kalman Filter (UKF) algorithms in a sequential architecture as a part of a small satellite attitude estimation algorithm. This TRIAD+UKF approach can both provide accurate attitude estimates for the satellite and calibrate the magnetometers in real-time. A complete calibration model for the magnetometers, considering bias, scale factor, soft iron and nonorthogonality errors, is assumed. In the algorithm's first stage, the TRIAD uses the available vector measurem...
Direction of arrival estimation for nonuniform linear arrays by using array interpolation
Tuncer, Temel Engin; Friedlander, B. (2007-07-03)
[1] A new approach is proposed for DOA estimation in nonuniform linear arrays (NLA) based on array interpolation. A Wiener formulation is presented to improve the condition number of the mapping matrix as well as the performance for noisy observations. Noniterative and iterative methods for DOA estimation are proposed. These methods use an initial DOA which is then significantly improved by the subsequent processing. Partially augmentable nonredundant arrays (PANA) and partly filled NLA (PFNLA) are consider...
