The Research of Cylindrical Noise Source Distribution Using Near-Field High-Resolution Location Methods Based on MVDR Algorithm


Article Preview

According to the lack of cylinder-model noise source localization technology based on near-field focused beam-forming, the paper aimed to find a near-field high-resolution method of the cylindrical noise source which is applied to measure the model as cylinder-models. This method established a near-field measurement model of noise sources using cylindrical measurement surface, and applied MVDR algorithm to noise sources localization. Reconstruct the cylinder measurement surface through the joint amplitude-phase compensation to achieve the noise source high-resolution localization and relative intensity estimates in the near-field. Verify the availability of this method through the simulations, which provided a theoretical basis for the next practical engineering application of the cylinder-model noise source localization based on near-field focused beam-forming.
