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.
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.
