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 previous v reported Modified Neural Multiple Source Tracking Algorithm(MN-MUST). The proposed algorithm, namely Cylindrical Microstrip Patch Array Modified Neural Multiple Source Tracking Algorithm (CMN-MUST) implements W-MUST algorithm on a cylindrical microsttip patch array structure. CMN-MUST algorithm uses the advantage of directive pattern of microstrip patch elements by considering only a part of array elements for a chosen sector. This reduces neural network sizes and also improves the spatial filtering performance. The proposed algorithm improves MN-MUST algorithm in the sense of accuracy and speed while covering the full azimuth range. It is observed that the CMN-MUST algorithm provides an accurate and efficient solution to the target-tracking problem in real time.

Çaylar, Selçuk; Dural Ünver, Mevlüde Gülbin; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
In this study, a neural network(NN) based algorithm is proposed for real time multiple source tracking problem based on a previously reported work. The proposed algorithm namely modified neural network based multiple source tracking algorithm (MN-MUST) performs direction of arrival(DoA) estimation in three stages which are the detection, filtering and DoA estimation stages. The main contributions of this proposed system are: reducing the input size for the uncorrelated source case (reducing the training tim...
Optimizations of Patch Antenna Arrays Using Genetic Algorithms Supported by the Multilevel Fast Multipole Algorithm
Onol, Can; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2014-12-01)
We present optimizations of patch antenna arrays using genetic algorithms and highly accurate full-wave solutions of the corresponding radiation problems with the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA). Arrays of finite extent are analyzed by using MLFMA, which accounts for all mutual couplings between array elements efficiently and accurately. Using the superposition principle, the number of solutions required for the optimization of an array is reduced to the number of array elements, without resorti...
A hybrid evolutionary performance improvement procedure for optimisation of continuous variable discharge concentrators
Sakuhuni, Givemore; Klein, Bern; Altun, Naci Emre (2015-05-05)
An iterative hybrid performance improvement approach integrating artificial neural network modelling and Pareto genetic algorithm optimisation was developed and tested. The optimisation procedure, code named NNREGA, was tested for tuning pilot scale Continuous Variable Discharge Concentrator (CVD) in order to simultaneously maximise recovery and upgrade ratio of gold bearing sulphides from a polymetallic massive sulphide ore. For the tests the CVD was retrofitted during normal operation on the flotation tai...

We present optimizations of three-dimensional antenna arrays using heuristic techniques coupled with the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA). Without resorting to any periodicity and infinity assumptions, antenna arrays are modeled with surface integral equations and simulated via MLFMA, which also enables the analysis of arrays with non-identical elements. Genetic algorithms and particle swarm optimization methods are employed on the complex data produced by MLFMA in phasor domain to find optimal s...
