Phase-only beamforming is used in radar and communication systems due to its certain advantages. Antenna selection becomes an important problem as the number of antennas becomes larger than the number of transmit-receive chains. In this paper, discrete single group multicast transmit phase-only beamformer design with antenna subset selection is considered. The problem is converted into linear form and solved efficiently by using mixed integer linear programming to find the optimum subset of antennas and beamformer coefficients. Several simulations are done and it is shown that the proposed approach is an effective and efficient method of subarray transmit beamformer design.

Demir, Özlem Tuğfe; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2015-04-24)
Phase-only beamforming presents certain advantages in radar and communication systems. In cognitive radio, antenna and user selection are the two tools for increasing the quality of service (QoS) for the users. In this paper, discrete single group multicast transmit phase-only beamformer design is presented with antenna subset and user selection.

Optimum discrete phase-only multicast beamforming with joint antenna and user selection in cognitive radio networks
DEMİR, ÖZLEM TUĞFE; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2015-11-01)
Spectrum underlay technique for secondary multicast network is an effective approach in cognitive radio. In such communication schemes, quality of service constraints are satisfied for the secondary users while interference to the primary users is kept under a threshold. Previous literature consists of suboptimum methods for the solution of the individual problems such as antenna and user selection. In this paper, the joint antenna and user selection problem is considered and solved in an optimum manner. Co...
OPTIMUM DISCRETE DISTRIBUTED BEAMFORMING FOR SINGLE GROUP MULTICASTING RELAY NETWORKS WITH RELAY SELECTION
Demir, Özlem Tuğfe; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2015-04-24)
In this paper, broadcast beamforming with relay selection is considered in wireless relay networks where there is no direct link between the source and the receivers. A source node transmits common information to many users employing multiple relays which use amplify-and-forward relay protocol. The channel state information is assumed to be available at a single relay to compute the relay weights and distribute them. Discrete relay weights are used due to several advantages including decreased overhead for ...
Optimum discrete transmit beamformer design
DEMİR, ÖZLEM TUĞFE; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2015-01-01)
In this paper, transmit beamformer design problem is considered for single group multicast case. This problem is treated in discrete phase and amplitude and converted to a linear form. The solution of this linear optimization problem is always feasible as long as the total transmit power is above a certain value. The proposed method is guaranteed to find the optimum solution. This new approach is used to design discrete phase-only (DPOB) and discrete phase-amplitude beamformers (DPAB). It is shown that the ...
True-time delay structures for microwave beamforming networks in S-band phased arrays
Temir, Kaan; Demir, Şimşek; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2013)
True time delay networks are one of the most critical structures of wideband phased-array antenna systems which are frequently used in self-protection and electronic warfare applications. In order to direct the main beam of a wideband phased-array antenna to the desired direction; phase values, which are linearly dependent to frequency, are essential. Due to the phase characteristics of the true-time delay networks, beam squint problems for broadband phased array systems are minimized. In this thesis, diffe...
