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

Efficient subband structures that aim at fast adaptation of fractionally spaced equalisers (FSE), by exploiting the 'prewhitening' effect that a subband decomposition has on the spectral dynamics of the equaliser input are discussed. Two novel FSE structures are proposed. which differ in the extent to which the feedforward and feedback sections of the FSE are implemented in the subband domain, with distinct impacts on the updating. Improved convergence is achieved at a reduced computational cost compared to a fullband benchmark.
