Adaptive usage of the butterworth digital filter

Erer, Koray S.
The Butterworth lowpass filter is a conventional tool that has been commonly used in gait analysis applications. Its operation mainly depends on the selection of the cut-off frequency, which must be done based on the condition of the raw signal assuming that it is stationary. This tool is unable to deal with nonstationary signals especially if impact is involved. In this paper, a modified version of the Butterworth filter that can handle nonstationary signals is presented. The new filter has a variable cut-off frequency distribution defined for each data point, which is determined by local signal characteristics. Because of its adaptive nature, it is possible for the filter to accommodate changes in the frequency content of the signal.


Waveguide filters with ridged and unequal width resonators
Yıldırım, Nevzat; Hizal, A (2005-06-17)
Analytical expressions are developed for characterization of ridged / finned waveguides for use in the design of direct coupled waveguide filters with ridged and / or unequal width resonators. The analytical expressions are used to control the harmonic passbands and higher order modes. A survey is made for comparison of responses of waveguide filters using unequal width resonators and unequal ridge resonators. it is found that ridged resonators are more effective in suppressing the spurious passbands in the...
Direction finding performance of antenna arrays on complex platforms using numerical electromagnetic simulation tools
Özeç, Mustafa Onur; Tuncer, Temel Engin; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2011)
An important step for the design of direction finding systems is the performance evaluation using numeric electromagnetic simulation tools. In this thesis, a method is presented for both modeling and simulation in a numeric electromagnetic simulation tool FEKO. The method relies on the data generated by FEKO. The data is then processed by correlative interferometer algorithm. This process is implemented in a MATLAB environment. Different types of antenna arrays including dipole, monopole and discone antenna...
Design of Selective Linear Phase Cross-Coupled Dielectric Resonator Filters
Ozturk, Onur Ozan; Oruc, Sacid; Alicioglu, Bulent; Yıldırım, Nevzat (2018-11-02)
In this paper, a highly selective linear phase filter is designed and implemented in cross-coupled form using dielectric resonators in Ku band to be used as a channel filter in IMUX of a satellite receiver. Extreme delay flatness is required: 1.5 nS delay ripple over 60 % of the passband and 12 nS near the band edges. The initial design is carried out as 10 resonator symmetric cross-coupled filter with all ideal inverter couplings realizing two finite transmission zeros (FTZ) satisfying also the delay flatn...
Series Active Filter Based Resonance Damping of High Power Three-phase, LCL Filtered, Grid Connected Voltage Source Inverters
Usluer, S. Nadir; Hava, Ahmet Masum (2014-06-04)
A series active filter (SAF) based method for the damping of resonant harmonics created by the LCL-filter of the grid connected PWM-VSI is proposed. Oscillations in multi-megawatt rated high power inverters with LCL-filters are damped with resistors which create undesired power losses typically up to 1% of the rated power of the system. The method stated in this paper overcomes the stability/oscillation problem while providing a solution to the resistive power loss. The proposed SAF compensated system perfo...
Elastic waveform inversion using Gauss-Newton method
Sheen, Dong-hoon; Baag, Chang-eob; Tuncay, Kağan; Ortoleva, Peter J. (2005-01-01)
Seismic waveform inversion has been solved usually by a gradient type approach for acoustic media. In this paper, we present an elastic waveform inversion method based on the Gauss‐Newton method. Elastic wave propagation simulation and inversion are both implemented in the time domain. The partial derivative wavefields are computed explicitly using convolutions of forward and reciprocal wavefields. Numerical experiments show that the Gauss‐Newton elastic waveform inversion significantly improves of resolvin...
