A computationally efficient method for the fundamental frequency estimation of a group of harmonically related complex sinusoids is given. To this aim, an efficient frequency estimation method for single tone complex sinusoids is adapted to the harmonic frequency estimation problem. The main idea of the suggested Fast Fourier Transform based method is the frequency estimation of individual complex sinusoids after the removal of the interference due to other harmonics. After several iterations of estimation and interference cancellation, the frequency estimates of each harmonic component are fused to obtain the fundamental frequency estimate. In addition to this, the model order selection, that is the estimation of the number of harmonics, is also discussed. The proposed method is applied on the direction of arrival problem for a single far-field source with harmonics. A theoretical study of the suggested scheme and its verification by computer experiments are provided.

A Method For Fine Resolution Frequency Estimation From Three DFT Samples
Candan, Çağatay (2011-06-01)
The parameter estimation of a complex exponential waveform observed under white noise is typically tackled in two stages. In the first stage, a coarse frequency estimate is found by the application of an N-point DFT to the input of length N. In the second stage, a fine search around the peak determined in the first stage is conducted. The method proposed in this paper presents a simpler alternative. The method suggests a nonlinear relation involving three DFT samples already calculated in the first stage to...
A fine-resolution frequency estimator using an arbitrary number of DFT coefficients
Orguner, Umut; Candan, Çağatay (2014-12-01)
A method for the frequency estimation of complex exponential signals observed under additive white Gaussian noise is presented. Unlike competing methods based on relatively few Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) samples, the presented technique can generate a frequency estimate by fusing the information from all DFT samples. The estimator is shown to follow the Cramer-Rao bound with a smaller signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) gap than the competing estimators at high SNR.
Fine resolution frequency estimation from three DFT samples: Case of windowed data
Candan, Çağatay (2015-09-01)
An efficient and low complexity frequency estimation method based on the discrete Fourier transform (DFT) samples is described. The suggested method can operate with an arbitrary window function in the absence or presence of zero-padding. The frequency estimation performance of the suggested method is shown to follow the Cramer-Rao bound closely without any error floor due to estimator bias, even at exceptionally high signal-to-noise-ratio (SNR) values.
A novel two-step pseudo-response based adaptive harmonic balance method for dynamic analysis of nonlinear structures
Sert, Onur; Ciğeroğlu, Ender (Elsevier BV, 2019-09-01)
Harmonic balance method (HBM) is one of the most popular and powerful methods, which is used to obtain response of nonlinear vibratory systems in frequency domain. The main idea of the method is to express the response of the system in Fourier series and converting the nonlinear differential equations of motion into a set of nonlinear algebraic equations. System response can be obtained by solving this nonlinear equation set in terms of the unknown Fourier coefficients. The accuracy of the solution is great...
