Research on TWACS Interference Suppression Based on the RLS Algorithm


Article Preview

TWACS (Two Way Automatic Communication System) has advantages such as economical and practical use, strong interference capability, long transmission distance and so on. But the noise in China's industrial distribution power grid owns the characters of strong interference randomness and even annihilation of the modulated signal. So the noise has a negative impact on power line communication performance. While the adaptive filter does not need to know in advance on the statistical characteristics of the input signal and noise, and has nothing to do with the spectral characteristics of the input signal. Based on this, it’s premised that the modulation signal is basically known, and the signal beyond modulation domain is regarded as reference signal to design an adaptive filter applied to TWACS by referring to the block diagram of the adaptive filter model to adjust the variable parameters of the RLS algorithm. Finally, the field test signal simulations show good effect of the adaptive filter design
