In this paper, a semi-parametric model for RSS measurements is introduced that can be used to predict coverage in cellular radio networks. The model is composed of an empirical log-distance model and a deterministic antenna gain model that accounts for possible non-uniform base station antenna radiation. A least-squares estimator is proposed to jointly estimate the path loss and antenna gain model parameters. Simulation as well as experimental results verify the efficacy of this approach. The method can provide improved accuracy compared to conventional path loss based estimation methods.

Microwave Energy Harvesting by using a Broadband Fractal Antenna and a Dual-Band Rectifier
Ozdemir, Huriye; Nesimoglu, Tayfun (2018-11-02)
In this paper, a broadband rectenna for radio frequency (RF) energy harvesting is presented. The proposed rectenna consists of a broadband fractal slot antenna and a voltage doubler rectifier circuit with a novel matching network. First of all, a broadband fractal antenna is proposed, which covers the most frequently encountered frequency bands which are located around 1800 MHz, 2.1 GHz, 2.4 GHz, and 2.45 GHz corresponding to the standards like GSM, UMTS, ISM, and WLAN, respectively. The return loss of the ...
Beam Steerable Traveling Wave Meander Line Antenna Using Varactor Diode for X-Band Applications
Gokalp, Nihan; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem (2008-07-11)
This paper presents a novel beam steerable meander line antenna with varactor diode for X-band applications. Beam steering has been achieved by loading the arms of the meander line antenna with varactor diodes. The capacitances of the varactor diodes have been controlled by DC bias voltage. Instead of varactor diodes, RF-MEMS variable capacitances can be used to scan the beam. Since the insertion loss of MEMS capacitances are small compared to loss of varactor diodes, use of MEMS capacitors will increase th...
Noncoherent differential demodulation of CPM signals with joint frequency offset and symbol timing estimation
Çulha, Onur; Tanık, Yalçın; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2011)
In this thesis, noncoherent differential demodulation of CPM signals with joint carrier frequency offset and symbol timing estimation is investigated. CPM is very attractive for wireless communications owing to major properties: good spectral efficiency and a constant envelope property. In order to demodulate the received CPM signal differentially, the symbol timing and the carrier frequency offset have to be estimated accurately. There are numerous methods developed for the purpose. However, we have not en...

Önder, Mustafa Caner; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2019)
In this thesis study, the design, fabrication and measurements of dualband and triband circularly polarized microstrip antennas for GPS applications are presented. Characteristic mode analysis technique is applied to get an insight into circularly polarized patch antennas. A design flow is presented for a circularly polarized L1 GPS band microstrip antenna by using characteristic mode analysis. A single fed L1/L2 GPS band right hand circularly polarized four-slotted patch antenna is designed by using reacti...
Cooperative Density Estimation in Random Wireless Ad Hoc Networks
Onur, Ertan; Niemegeers, Ignas (2012-03-01)
Density estimation is crucial for wireless ad hoc networks for adequate capacity planning. Protocols have to adapt their operation to the density since the throughput in an ad hoc network approaches asymptotically to zero as the density increases. A wireless node can estimate the global density by using local information such as the received power from neighbors. In this paper, we propose a cross layer protocol to compute the density estimate. The accuracy of the estimate can be enhanced and its variance ca...
