The power spectrum density (PSD) variation of heart rate obtained during the standard Bruce protocol exercise testing is analyzed. Auto-regression and Fourier Transform methods are used to estimate PSD. Since RR variation displayed rapid stepwise decreases immediately following the increases of exercise loads, it was necessary to analyze each exercise step separately. For each step two major peaks in the power spectrum were found similar to what is observed in rest HRV studies. Need for new algorithms, is emphasized.


Comparison of ML and MAP parameter estimation techniques for the solution of inverse electrocardiography problem
Erenler, Taha; Serinağaoğlu Doğrusöz, Yeşim; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2018)
This study aims to determine the cardiac electrical activity from body surface potential measurements. This problem is called the inverse problem of electrocardiography. Reconstruction of the cardiac electrical activity from the body surface potential measurements is not an easy task, since this problem has an ill-posed nature due to attenuation and spatial smoothing inside the medium between the source and the measurement sites, meaning that even small errors in the mathematical model or noise in the measu...
Prediction of renal respiratory motion for compensation during percutaneous needle insertion in robot assisted surgery
Çetinkaya, Mehmet; Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2018)
In this study, the aim is to design a respiratory motion prediction algorithm which can be used to compensate for this physiological disturbance in medical operations where respiration limits operation accuracy. For this purpose, a new Kalman filter has been developed for tracking quasi-periodic signals approximated as finite Fourier series. Instead of relying on approximations provided by Extended Kalman Filter or Unscented Kalman Filter, our filter performs the exact calculation of the mean and covariance...
An experimental study on Power Amplifier linearisation by artificial neural networks Yapay Sinir Aǧlari ile Güç Yükselteç Doǧrusalląstirma Amaçli Deneysel Bir Çalisma
Yesil, Soner; Kolagasioglu, Ahmet Ertugrul; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür (2018-07-05)
This paper represents an experimental study on the linearisation of Power Amplifiers especially on high output power regions by utilizing an artificial neural network structure and open-loop training method. For the same in-band output power, 9dB EVM and 6dB ACLR improvement has been observed on hardware by feeding the proposed digital predistortion signal (DPD) to the PA under test.
Time weighted average concentration monitoring of compounds with wide range of physicochemical properties in aquatic environment using thin film solid phase microextraction
Boyacı, Ezel; Ahmadi, Fardin; Pawliszyn, Janusz (null; 2017-03-05)
This study offers an integrated approach for time weighted average (TWA) concentration determination of analytes with a wide range of physical-chemical properties. Two types of thin film solid phase microextraction (TF-SPME) passive sampler, namely a retracted TF-SPME device using a hydrophilic lipophilic balance (HLB) sorbent and an open bed configuration TF-SPME device with octadecyl silica-based (C18) sorbent were developed and used for monitoring TWA concentrations of selected UV blockers and biocides. ...
Nonuform pulse repetition interval optimization for pulse doppler radars
Mercan, Hasan; Tanık, Yalçın; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2004)
In this thesis, a method of optimization of nonuniform pulse repetition interval for pulse Doppler radars is investigated. PRI jittering technique is used for the selection of inter-pulse intervals. An environment with white Gaussian noise and clutter interference is defined and applying generalized likelihood ratio test, a sufficient statistic function for the detection of the target is derived. The effect of jitter set selection on range and Doppler ambiguity resolution and clutter rejection is investigat...
