Figure 3 demonstrates the robustness of MSE compared with SE technique for single-frequency sinusoidal wave in the absence and presence of different noises.
When the echo intensity is simulated with a sinusoidal wave, the difference is larger than that simulated with a linear function.
Consider a sinusoidal wave expressed by [xi] = 0.015 cos(2[pi][x.sub.g]/[LAMBDA]), where [x.sub.g] is the size of the facet and [LAMBDA] = [lambda]/(2 sin [[theta].sub.i]) is the spatial wavelength satisfying the Bragg resonance.
The Bragg wave is modeled by sinusoidal waves traveling towards and away from the radar sight as in Figure 1 with the following form:
It is seen that the magnetic anomaly in the x-axis direction looks like a damping sinusoidal wave. The magnetic anomaly in the y-axis direction exhibits two maximums near the two crest lines of the Kelvin track.
If the number of terms for the approximant function is one, as it is shown in equation (20), the function is a sinusoidal wave, and its amplitude is one, in the same way that has been shown so far.
The method of complex-conjugate control is proposed to optimize the dimensions of heavy buoy and to maximize energy extraction from regular waves (sinusoidal waves) [8, 9].
The stronger appearance of nonlinearity is, the greater the amplitude of the wave is, which is demonstrated by the propagation of the sinusoidal wave and the distortion of its shape.
* Sinusoidal wave: [f.sub.p] = 50 Hz, [A.sub.p] = 0.8
As we know, the ENOBs of ADC can be expressed as ENOBs = N - [log.sub.2]([rho]/[Q.sub.i]), where N is the number of bits of ADC, p is the total RMS error between the sampling data of originally collected periodic signal containing multiple harmonics and the corresponding points of fitting "sinusoidal wave", and [Q.sub.i] is the theoretical values of RMS quantization error which can be expressed as [Q.sub.i] = [E.sub.r]/([square root of 12] x [2.sup.N]), where [E.sub.r] is the range of ADC channel.
In the first simulation we mixed an EEG signal with a sinusoidal wave by 160 Hz sampling frequency, sinusoidal wave is representative of epileptic activity, in this simulation our interested signal for extracting is the stationary oscillatory type sinusoidal signal.
