Multicast Beamforming with Antenna Selection Using Alternating Maximization

Multi-group multicast beamforming problem with antenna selection is considered in this paper. The rank one constraint which makes the problem nonconvex is embedded into the objective function using exact penalty function. The resulting problem has a bilinear objective function with convex constraints. The equivalent problem is solved iteratively using alternating maximization where a convex optimization problem is solved at each step. Using antenna selection with this effective approach further reduces the total transmitted power significantly compared to the scenario with fixed antennas. The proposed method is computationally efficient and provides significant improvement on reduction of the transmitted power.

MULTICAST BEAMFORMING WITH ANTENNA SELECTION USING EXACT PENALTY APPROACH
Demir, Özlem Tuğfe; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2015-04-24)
In this paper, multi-group multicast beamforming is considered with antenna selection. Nonconvex joint problem is converted to an equivalent biconvex problem by using exact penalty approach. The equivalent problem is solved iteratively using alternating maximization where a convex problem is solved at each step. Antenna selection reduces the total transmitted power significantly compared to the scenario with fixed antennas. Proposed method is computationally efficient and presents significant improvements i...
Antenna Scan Period Estimation of Radars with Cepstrum and Scoring
Kalfaoglu, M. Esat; Can, Ogul; Yildirim, Berkin; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (2019-01-01)
The performance of the cepstrum method on the radar antenna scan period estimation is evaluated. In addition, instead of relying on the cepstrum estimation directly, a two-block algorithm is proposed by adding a scoring block to make the estimation more reliable. Cepstrum is compared with zero-padded Fast Fourier Transform (FFT), zero-padded periodogram and Pulse Repetition Interval (PRI) transform. Cepstrum has been observed to be superior in six of the seven groups in the radar data set with respect to pe...
MULTI-GROUP MULTICAST BEAMFORMING FOR SIMULTANEOUS WIRELESS INFORMATION AND POWER TRANSFER
Demir, Özlem Tuğfe; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2015-09-04)
In this paper, simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT) concept is introduced for multi group multicast beamforming. Each user has a single antenna and a power splitter which divides the radio frequency (RF) signal into two for both information decoding and energy harvesting. The aim is to minimize the total transmission power at the base station while satisfying both signal-to-interference-plus- noise-ratio (SINR) and harvested power constraints at each user. Unlike unicast and certain ...
Multifrequency and multidirection optimizations of antenna arrays using heuristic algorithms and the multilevel fast multipole algorithm
Onol, Can; Alkis, Sena; Gokce, Ozer; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2016-07-01)
We consider fast and efficient optimizations of arrays involving three-dimensional antennas with arbitrary shapes and geometries. Heuristic algorithms, particularly genetic algorithms, are used for optimizations, while the required solutions are carried out accurately and efficiently via the multilevel fast multipole algorithm(MLFMA). The superposition principle is employed to reduce the number of MLFMA solutions to the number of array elements per frequency. The developed mechanism is used to optimize arra...
Discrete Relay Beamforming for Broadcasting with Relay Selection
Demir, Özlem Tuğfe; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2015-05-19)
In this paper, broadcast beamforming problem is considered in relay-assisted wireless networks. Two-phase relay communication is adopted. In the first phase, a source transmits common information to multiple relays which use amplify-and-forward relay protocol. Each relay multiplies its received signal by a complex weight and transmits it to the receivers. The amplitudes and phases of complex relay weights are chosen from discrete sets in order to decrease overhead for the feedback channel. Relay selection i...
