Open Access research that is improving renewable energy technology...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers across the departments of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering (MAE), Electronic & Electrical Engineering (EEE), and Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering (NAOME), all of which are leading research into aspects of wind energy, the control of wind turbines and wind farms.

Researchers at EEE are examining the dynamic analysis of turbines, their modelling and simulation, control system design and their optimisation, along with resource assessment and condition monitoring issues. The Energy Systems Research Unit (ESRU) within MAE is producing research to achieve significant levels of energy efficiency using new and renewable energy systems. Meanwhile, researchers at NAOME are supporting the development of offshore wind, wave and tidal-current energy to assist in the provision of diverse energy sources and economic growth in the renewable energy sector.

Abstract

In this paper, we propose a new adaptive technique for blind equalisation for fast time-varying channels. The proposed approach is based on fitting the probability density function (pdf) of the equalizer output to the desired pdf of the corresponding symbol alphabet. The underlying pdf at the equalizer output is estimated by means of the Parzen Window method. The cost function of the proposed technique can be measured by a stochastic gradient descent approach. The performance of the proposed adaptation strategy is assessed by a number of simulations, and benchmarked against CMA under QPSK modulation in a doubly-dispersive environment.
