Simulation of wireless communications in underground tunnels
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
The new released 4G standard wireless communication reminds us that higher transmission data rate and more reliable service are required urgently. However, to fulfill the demand can face problems in a complex environment like mines. In this thesis, characterization of underground tunnel mines with the idea of combating intersymbol interference effect is presented.
Ray tracing simulation method is applied to characterize channel impulse response in different positions of an underground tunnel. From this channel impulse response, we can obtain how intersymbol interference affects different wireless systems. Intersymbol interference occurs due to multipath propagation of time dispersion channel.
Adaptive Equalization is the most effective way to compensate intersymbol interference. Adaptive filter adapts filter coefficients to compensate the channel so that the combination of the filter and channel offers a flat frequency response and linear phase. The bit error rate performance without using adaptive equalization is compared with using equalizer. Moreover, adaptive equalization approaches using RLS and LMS algorithms are compared with each other. The tradeoff between convergence rate, computation cost instability and ensemble averaged minimum squared errors are analyzed to determine how to select the optimum adaptive equalizer.
