Low Complexity Correction Structures for Time-Varying Systems

Research Area

Time-varying systems are encountered in various fields of engineering. If the time-varying behavior of a system is undesired, it produces a distorted output signal. Dedicated time-varying systems can be cascaded with the original system to correct the impact of the undesired
time-varying behavior on the output signal. In applications where a high reconstruction accuracy is important, the computational cost of designing and employing flexible digital correction systems remains challenging. In particular, the computational load becomes a major challenge if the digital correction system needs to be redesigned for each time instant. In this thesis, low complexity correction methods for the design of linear time-varying correction filters are developed. These filters can be applied to postcorrect or precorrect linear time-varying systems.
