Maximum likelihood autoregressive (AR) model parameter estimation problem with independent snapshots observed under white Gaussian measurement noise is studied. In addition to the AR model parameters, the measurement noise variance is also included among the unknowns of the problem to develop a general solution covering several special cases such as the case of known noise variance, noise-free snapshots, the single snapshot operation etc. The presented solution is based on the expectation-maximization method which is formulated by assigning the noise-free snapshots as the missing data. An approximate version of the suggested method, at a significantly reduced computational load with virtually no loss of performance, has also been developed. Numerical results indicate that the suggested solution brings major performance improvements in terms of estimation accuracy and does not suffer from unstable AR filter estimates unlike some other methods in the literature. The suggested method can be especially useful for small-dimensional multiple-snapshot noisy AR modeling applications such as the clutter power spectrum modeling application in radar signal processing.

Analysis Window Length Selection For Linear Signal Models
Yazar, Alper; Candan, Çağatay (2015-05-19)
A method is presented for the selection of analysis window length, or the number of input samples, for linear signal modeling without compromising the model assumptions. It is assumed that the signal of interest lies in a known linear space and noisy samples of the signal is provided. The goal is to use as many signal samples as possible to mitigate the effect of noise without violating the assumptions on the model. An application example is provided to illustrate the suggested method.
Real-Time Detection of Interharmonics and Harmonics of AC Electric Arc Furnaces on GPU Framework
Uz-Logoglu, Eda; Salor, Ozgul; Ermiş, Muammer (2017-10-05)
In this paper, a method based on the multiple synchronous reference frame (MSRF) analysis is recommended and implemented to detect time-varying harmonics and interharmonics of rapidly fluctuating asymmetrical industrial loads. The experimental work has been carried out on a typical three-phase alternating current arc furnace (AC EAF) installation. In the recommended method, the reference frame is rotated in both directions at speeds corresponding to the positive and negative sequences of all harmonics and a...
Noise Estimation for Hyperspectral Imagery using Spectral Unmixing and Synthesis
DEMİRKESEN, CAN; Leloğlu, Uğur Murat (2014-09-25)
Most hyperspectral image (HSI) processing algorithms assume a signal to noise ratio model in their formulation which makes them dependent on accurate noise estimation. Many techniques have been proposed to estimate the noise. A very comprehensive comparative study on the subject is done by Gao et al. [1]. In a nut-shell, most techniques are based on the idea of calculating standard deviation from assumed-to-be homogenous regions in the image. Some of these algorithms work on a regular grid parameterized wit...

Simplified MAP estimator for OFDM systems under fading
Cueruek, Selva Muratoglu; Tanık, Yalçın (2007-04-25)
This paper presents a simplified Maximum A Posteriori (MAP) estimator, which yields channel taps in OFDM systems under fading conditions using a parametric correlation model, assuming that the channel is frequency selective, slowly time varying and Gaussian. Expressions for the variance of estimation error are derived to evaluate the performance of the MAP estimator. The relation between the correlation of subchannels taps and error variance and the effect of Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) are investigated. Th...
