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.

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...
Target tracking with correlated measurement noise
Okşar, Yeşim; Demirbaş, Kerim; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
A white Gaussian noise measurement model is widely used in target tracking problem formulation. In practice, the measurement noise may not be white. This phenomenon is due to the scintillation of the target. In many radar systems, the measurement frequency is high enough so that the correlation cannot be ignored without degrading tracking performance. In this thesis, target tracking problem with correlated measurement noise is considered. The correlated measurement noise is modeled by a first-order Markov m...
Multi-target tracking using passive doppler measurements
Guldogan, Mehmet B.; Orguner, Umut; Gustafsson, Fredrik (2013-04-26)
In this paper, we analyze the performance of the Gaussian mixture probability hypothesis density (GM-PHD) filter in tracking multiple non-cooperative targets using Doppler-only measurements in a passive sensor network. Clutter, missed detections and multi-static Doppler variances are incorporated into a realistic multi-target scenario. Simulation results show that the GM-PHD filter successfully tracks multiple targets using only Doppler shift measurements in a passive multi-static scenario.

Multitarget tracking performance metric: deficiency aware subpattern assignment
Oksuz, Kemal; CEMGİL, ALİ TAYLAN (2018-03-01)
Multitarget tracking is a sequential estimation problem where conditioned on noisy sensor measurements, state variables of several targets need to be estimated recursively. In this study, the authors propose a novel performance measure for multitarget tracking named as Deficiency Aware Subpattern Assignment (DASA), that can be used to consistently compare algorithms in a broad spectrum of formulations ranging from conventional data association methods to random finite set based multitarget tracking algorith...
