ABSTRACT The paper proposes a neural network technique to adaptively model
and characterize digital satellite channels. The neural network model
allows to identify each component of the channel by the use of the
channel input-output signals as learning data. This technique was
applied to fault detection in digital satellite links, especially those
arising in on-board devices. The paper gives simulation examples of
changes in the on-board filter characteristics. Our adaptive method
allows to determine the origins of the changes and gives the new
characteristics of the channel

    ABSTRACT: Simple two-parameter formulas are presented for the functions involved in the amplitude-phase and the quadrature nonlinear models of a TWT amplifier, and are shown to fit measured data very well. Also, a closed-form expression is derived for the output signal of a TWT amplifier excited by two phase-modulated carriers, and an expression containing a single integral is given when more than two such earriers are involved. Finally, a frequencydependent quadrature model is proposed whose parameters are obtainable from single-tone measurements.
