A NOVEL ADAPTIVE BEAMFORMING TECHNIQUE APPLIED ON LINEAR ANTENNA ARRAYS USING ADAPTIVE MUTATED BOOLEAN PSO

Abstract:
The present work introduces a new optimization technique suitable for adaptive beamforming of linear antenna arrays. The proposed technique is a new PSO variant called Adaptive Mutated Boolean PSO (AMBPSO) where the update formulae are implemented exclusively in Boolean form by using an efficiently adaptive mutation process. The AMBPSO aims at estimating the excitation weights applied on the array elements considering that a desired signal and several interference signals are received by the array at respective directions of arrival. In order to exhibit the robustness of the technique, the optimization process does not take into account the interference correlation matrix. A certain power level of additive Gaussian noise is also considered by the technique. The AMBPSO has been applied in several cases of uniform linear antenna arrays with different spacing between adjacent elements and different noise power level and therefore seems to be quite promising in the smart antenna technology.
