An improved quasi-Newton (QN) algorithm that performs data-selective adaptation is proposed whereby the weight vector and the inverse of the input-signal autocorrelation matrix are updated only when the a priori error exceeds a prespecified error bound. The proposed algorithm also incorporates an improved estimator of the inverse of the autocorrelation matrix. With these modifications, the proposed QN algorithm takes significantly fewer updates to converge and yields a reduced steady-state misalignment relative to a known QN algorithm proposed recently. These features of the proposed QN algorithm are demonstrated through extensive simulations. Simulations also show that the proposed QN algorithm, like the known QN algorithm, is quite robust with respect to roundoff errors introduced in fixed-point implementations.

    ABSTRACT: A new adaptive filtering algorithm is developed based on fairly well known off-line optimization techniques. The need for tuning parameters is eliminated through an efficient line search procedure which assures good performance in many practical situations. Simulations are included which demonstrate the algorithm's stability under conditions where other algorithms with fast convergence, e.g., RLS, LMS-Newton, diverge

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents a new technique to estimate power system frequency and peak value of current/voltage waveforms based on the quasi Newton (QN) technique. The QN method is used to implement a nonlinear filter which estimates power system frequency, rejects harmonics/inter-harmonics, and track the peak value of the voltage/current waveform. The performance of the proposed technique in presence of harmonics, inter-harmonics, dc offset, and power electronics switching operation has been evaluated by presenting a selection of simulation results.

    ABSTRACT: Two robust quasi-Newton (QN) adaptive filtering algorithms that perform well in impulsive-noise environments are proposed. The new algorithms use an improved estimate of the inverse of the autocorrelation matrix and an improved weight-vector update equation, which lead to improved speed of convergence and steady-state misalignment relative to those achieved in the known QN algorithms. A stability analysis shows that the proposed algorithms are asymptotically stable. The proposed algorithms perform data-selective adaptation, which significantly reduces the amount of computation required. Simulation results presented demonstrate the attractive features of the proposed algorithms.
