ABSTRACT Due to the computational complexity of the Volterra filter, there are limitations on the implementation in practice. In this paper, a novel adaptive joint process filter using pipelined feedforward second-order Volterra architecture (JPPSOV) to reduce the computational burdens of the Volterra filter is proposed. The proposed architecture consists of two subsections: nonlinear subsection performing a nonlinear mapping from the input space to an intermediate space by the feedforward second-order Volterra (SOV), and a linear combiner performing a linear mapping from the intermediate space to the output space. The corresponding adaptive algorithms are deduced for the nonlinear and linear combiner subsections, respectively. Moreover, the analysis of theory shows that these adaptive algorithms based on the pipelined architecture are stable and convergence under a certain condition. To evaluate the performance of the JPPSOV, a series of simulation experiments are presented including nonlinear system identification and predicting of speech signals. Compared with the conventional SOV filter, adaptive JPPSOV filter exhibits a litter better convergence performance with less computational burden in terms of convergence speed and steady-state error.

    ABSTRACT: The main limits on adaptive Volterra filters are their computational complexity in practical implementation and significant performance degradation under the impulsive noise environment. In this paper, a low-complexity pipelined robust M-estimate second-order Volterra (PRMSOV) filter is proposed to reduce the computational burdens of the Volterra filter and enhance the robustness against impulsive noise. The PRMSOV filter consists of a number of extended second-order Volterra (SOV) modules without feedback input cascaded in a chained form. To apply to the modular architecture, the modified normalized least mean M-estimate (NLMM) algorithms are derived to suppress the effect of impulsive noise on the nonlinear and linear combiner subsections, respectively. Since the SOV-NLMM modules in the PRMSOV can operate simultaneously in a pipelined parallelism fashion, they can give a significant improvement of computational efficiency and robustness against impulsive noise. The stability and convergence on nonlinear and linear combiner subsections are also analyzed with the contaminated Gaussian (CG) noise model. Simulations on nonlinear system identification and speech prediction show the proposed PRMSOV filter has better performance than the conventional SOV filter and joint process pipelined SOV (JPPSOV) filter under impulsive noise environment. The initial convergence, steady-state error, robustness and computational complexity are also better than the SOV and JPPSOV filters.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we proposed the development of neural adaptive controls to ensure the robustness of uncertain nonlinear multivariable systems. We used two techniques: Robust neural adaptive control and neural indirect adaptive control. The study of the stability and robustness of both techniques was performed by Lyapunov theory. To validate these techniques and discover their effectiveness, a simulation example was considered. The simulation results obtained by these two control techniques have shown the effects of disturbance compensation, good performance tracking data paths and stability control systems. Comparative studies between these two techniques show that the neural indirect adaptive control cannot mitigate the effect of disturbances compared to the robust neural adaptive control. Keywords: Neural adaptive controls; Robust neural adaptive control; Neural indirect adaptive control; Lyapunov theory; uncertain nonlinear multivariable systems.

    ABSTRACT: Evaluation of the convergence bound in the frequency domain for Volterra series expansion of nonlinear systems described by NARX models is studied. This provides new convergence criteria under which the nonlinear system of interest has a convergent Volterra series expansion, and the new criteria are expressed explicitly in terms of the input magnitude, model parameters, and frequency variable. The new convergence criteria are firstly developed for harmonic inputs and then extended to multi-tone and general input cases. Based on the theoretical analysis, a general procedure for calculating the convergence bound is provided. The results provide a fundamental basis for nonlinear signal processing using the Volterra series theory
