Main purpose of this study is to design a transmitter with data rates up to 100 Mbps, having QPSK/OQPSK modulation and 7 W (38.5 dBm) output power at 8.2 GHz. This output power satisfies the link budget for a low earth orbit (LEO) satellite at 700 km, utilizing required source-channel coding schemes in baseband for a BER performance of 10(-6). The modulation scheme of the transmitter can be selected as BPSK, QPSK or OQPSK. In addition to QPSK/OQPSK modulation scheme choice, the transmitter will have three different data rates, 50 Mbps and 100 Mbps which will be chosen according to the needs and facilities of the ground station. As error correction coding (ECC) scheme, a nested structure that is recommended by CCSDS is chosen which combines powerful parts of the subcodes. As the outer code, Reed Solomon with (255,223,33)(256) is used for error correction for burst errors due to multipath fading. As inner code, a convolutional code with rate (1/2) is utilized, which provides correction for random errors in the channel with a moderate bandwidth expansion. Between inner and outer codes, convolutional interleaver with depth 5 is used.


A new approach to unified performance analysis of randomly-spread CDMA systems over multipath fading channels via crosscorrelation matrix non-asymptotic average eigenvalue distributions
Ertug, O; Baykal, Buyurman; Sayrac, B (2003-09-10)
A new unified method for closed-form theoretical performance analysis of randomly-spread CDMA systems over multipath fading channels with multiuser receivers is presented. The basis of the analysis is the representation of the random signal-to-interference ratios (SIR) at finite system parameters in terms of the eigenvalues of the crosscorrelation matrices for which the non-asymptotic average distributions are found or known. The methodology presented complements the asymptotic limiting theory used in simil...

Barrel side and pulsed power supply module are two crucial parts of an electromagnetic launcher (EML), which affects the efficiency. One of the most important features in the barrel side is the shape of the armature. In this study, the shape of the armature is optimized by using independent variables to define the exact geometry of the armature. The main goal is to maximize the muzzle kinetic energy of the projectile. Armature geometry is divided into pieces which are used in the optimization algorithm as i...
Efficient integrated DC-DC converters for ultra-low voltage energy harvesters
Jayaweera, Herath; Muhtaroğlu, Ali; Sustainable Environment and Energy Systems (2017-8)
The self-starting on-chip fully integrated ultra-low voltage DC-DC converters for energy harvesting applications presented in literature generally have low efficiency and output power capacity. Any improvement in DC-DC converter circuits in terms of energy efficiency, output power, self-starting modes, and voltage gain will contribute significantly to the widespread application of energy harvesters. Two novel fully integrated, self-starting, ultra-low voltage DC-DC converter topologies and model based optim...
Improving the efficiency of microwave power amplifiers without linearity degradation using load and bias tuning in a new configuration
Ronaghzadeh, Amin; Demir, Şimşek; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2013)
Advanced digital modulation schemes used in the wireless applications, result in the modulated RF signals with high peak to average power ratio which requires linear amplification. On the other hand, the demand for a longer talk time with less battery volume and weight, especially in hand-held radio units, necessitate more power efficient methods to be utilized in power amplifier design. But improved linearity and efficiency have always been contradicting requirements demanding innovative power amplifier and...

The flyback transformer is a crucial part of the flyback converter, which has the highest portion of total power losses for most applications. Accurately prediction of the power losses due to flyback transformer early in the design stage provides an advantage about revealing reliable prototypes. In this paper, several loss prediction methods are applied for a 40W universal input and single output DCM flyback transformer as; analytical calculations via well-known Steinmetz and Dowell's formulas, a simulation...
