Channel Equalization using GA Family

Mohanty, Debidutta (2008) Channel Equalization using GA Family. MTech by Research thesis.



High speed data transmissions over communication channels distort the trans- mitted signals in both amplitude and phase due to presence of Inter Symbol Inter- ference (ISI). Other impairments like thermal noise, impulse noise and cross talk also cause further distortions to the received symbols. Adaptive equalization of the digital channels at the receiver removes/reduces the e®ects of such ISIs and attempts to recover the transmitted symbols. Basically an equalizer is an inverse ¯lter which is placed at the front end of the receiver. Its transfer function is inverse to the transfer function of the associated channel. The Least-Mean-Square (LMS), Recursive-Least-Square (RLS) and Multilayer perceptron (MLP) based adaptive equalizers aim to minimize the ISI present in the digital communication channel. These are gradient based learning algorithms and therefore there is possibility that during training of the equalizers, its weights do not reach to their optimum values due to ...
