A new method for optimum design of V-shaped arrays is presented for azimuth and elevation angle estimation simultaneously. The design criterion is based on the Cramer-Rao Bound (CRB) for joint estimation where the coupling effect between the azimuth and elevation direction of arrival (DOA) angles is taken into account. The design method finds an optimum angle between the linear sub-arrays of the V-array. The computation of the optimum angle is simple due to the monotonic characteristics of the best and worst performance levels of CRB. The proposed method can be used to obtain directional arrays with significantly better DOA performance compared to the circular arrays. Furthermore V-array angle can be chosen for isotropic angle performance which is better than the circular arrays. The modeling error for the sensor positions is also investigated. It is shown that both V-array and circular array have similar robustness for the position errors.

Design of V-shaped array geometry

in this study, a new design method is proposed for V-shaped planar array geometry for two-dimensional azimuth and elevation angle estimation. The proposed method is similar to filter design in signal processing. This method determines the V-shaped array geometry which gives the best 2-D angle estimation performances for the specified design parameters. The best geometry is determined by using Cramer-Rao Bound (CRB) and performance comparison is done with other planar array geometries.

In this study, a new method for optimum design of uniform and non-uniform V-shaped arrays is presented for azimuth and elevation angle estimation. The proposed design method finds an optimum angle between the linear sub-arrays of the V-array by using the Cramer-Rao Bound (CRB) where statistical coupling effect between azimuth and elevation angle estimation is considered This method can be used to obtain directional and isotropic angle performances for uniform and non-uniform V-arrays.

UNIFORM AND NONUNIFORM V-SHAPED ISOTROPIC PLANAR ARRAYS
Filik, Tansu; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2008-07-23)
In this study, isotropic V-shaped uniform and nonuniform arrays are considered. An isotropic array has the same value for the Cramer-Rao bound (CRB) for all direction of arrival (DOA) angles. The conditions for isotropic V-shaped arrays are presented and closed form expressions for V-shaped uniform and nonuniform arrays are found. These expressions return the V-angle for the array. Therefore, given the number of sensors and sensor displacements, isotropic performance V-angle can be found easily. V-shaped ar...
An Efficient Hybrid Beamforming and Channel Acquisition for Wideband mm-Wave Massive MIMO Channels
Kurt, Anıl; Güvensen, Gökhan Muzaffer (2019-01-01)
In this paper, an efficient hybrid beamforming architecture together with a novel spatio-temporal receiver processing is proposed for single-carrier (SC) mm-wave wideband massive MIMO channels in time-domain duplex (TDD) mode. The design of two-stage beamformers is realized by using a virtual sectorization via second-order channel statistics based user grouping. The novel feature of the proposed architecture is that the effect of both inter-group-interference (due to non-orthogonality of virtual angular sec...
Design and implementation of variable frequency sine wave output buck-boost inverter
Şener, Yunus; Ertan, Hulusi Bülent; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2016)
Conventional inverters have pulse-width-modulated output with a fundamental component at the desired frequency and magnitude. These converters are usually buck type and therefore the DC link voltage limits the maximum 3-phase output voltage magnitude. As a consequence, in motor drive applications field weakening is essential after a certain frequency of operation, as it becomes impossible to preserve the rated flux level. In renewable energy applications similar problems arise. When the DC link voltage fall...
