Abstract

The development of methods for studying inhomogeneities of the upper atmosphere is important for solving many scientific and practical problems, since the ionosphere, as a propagation medium, significantly affects the operation of various navigation, location and communication systems. Due to the variability of the ionosphere in its research, the main role is played by the methods of radio sounding, which allow obtaining information about its state in real time. For their further development, it is mainly required to improve measurement methods by developing experimental data processing algorithms that combine new knowledge about ongoing processes, mathematical modeling, and digital secondary processing methods. The purpose of the work is the development of methods and algorithms for studying coherence bands in tilted and transionospheric sounding of the Earth’s ionosphere.

Abstract

The aim of the work is to determine the optimal structure of the modulating sequence of the preamble symbol in the class of polyphase codes in order to reduce the variance of the estimate of temporal mismatch in the channel with multipath propagation. In modern data transmission systems using OFDM technology (Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing), methods based on the periodic transmission of a special synchronization sequence – the preamble are widely used to solve the problem of high sensitivity to errors in time and frequency synchronization. The analysis of methods for estimating the time and frequency mismatches showed that the most robust to multipath propagation are synchronization algorithms based on the Minn method. In this method, the preamble consists of several blocks weighted by some binary sequence (modulating sequence). The processing of the preamble symbol is carried out on the basis of determining the mutual correlation function of neighboring blocks. Minn’s proposed preamble structure and processing method allows in this case to evaluate the temporal mismatch when receiving OFDM signals, however, the accuracy of the estimate under conditions of a low signal-to-noise ratio leaves much to be desired. A method for processing the preamble symbol is proposed that takes into account the cross-correlation of all blocks, and not just neighboring ones, providing a decrease in the variance of the estimates of the temporal mismatch at low signal-to-noise ratios and in multipath conditions. Another variant of the preamble formation is considered, in which additional weighting of some blocks of the preamble by a binary pseudorandom sequence is used to reduce the variance of the time mismatch estimate. It is advisable to use polyphase codes in the preamble blocks and in the modulating sequence, with the structure of the preamble symbol processing device being unchanged, in the interests of increasing the accuracy of the time mismatch estimation. In the paper, the question of the influence of the form of the modulating sequence on the accuracy of the formed estimates of the temporal mismatch is not sufficiently addressed.

OUTPUT CASCADE OF POWER AMPLIFIER OF SOUND FREQUENCIES ON THE GENERATOR TETROD

Abstract

The calculation of the output stage of the audio frequency power amplifier implemented on the generator beam tetrode GU-19 is proposed, which allows to reduce the resistance brought to the lamp anode, in comparison with traditional technical solutions. Currently, the interest in the independent manufacture of tube equipment for amplification of high-frequency sound frequencies does not fade. In the traditional approach to selecting lamps and designing the output stages of these medium-power amplifiers (20-25 W), one encounters difficulties such as a relatively high anode voltage (300 V or more), and a high resistance to the anode for most traditional radio tubes, which makes it difficult manufacturing of a high-quality output transformer, as well as the relatively high cost of the most popular lamps in such cascades. In this regard, the task was set to design an output stage with a power of about 20 W with anode supply voltage of not more than 300 V on lamps that do not require a resistance of more than 1500 Ohms for operation in the design mode.

Abstract

The main disadvantage of PLL systems with an adaptive feedback filter that allows you to select the band of the processed signal is its potential instability when processing signals from MEMS. An increase in the feedback coefficient leads to a decrease in the phase margin. To ensure the stability of the feedback loop in this case, you will have to reduce the bandwidth of the processing circuit.

Abstract

When organizing digital broadcasting in the low-frequency ranges of radio waves, the calculation of the required energy characteristics is carried out taking into account the unsteadiness of the radio wave propagation channel. For such channels, deep fading and the multipath nature of reception are common. Significant experimental material has been accumulated in the world, representing statistics on the behavior of ionospheric radio channels. In the 70s of the last century C.C. Watterson, summarizing the experience of on-air observations and the results of scientific research in the field of ionospheric physics, proposed a mathematical model of the ionospheric channel of propagation of radio waves. The model showed high adequacy and was officially recommended by the International Telecommunication Union. On the basis of this model, a number of digital simulators of the ionospheric channel were created, allowing to test the operation of radio links in a short time, using various types of modulation, including digital. Similar work was carried out in the research laboratory No. 6 of the research part of MTUCI, where, using the developed software simulator, the values of protective ratios in the DRM standard short-wave digital broadcasting system were determined. The measurements taken used the traditional approach, in which the interference is represented as a local source with respect to the receiving point, which has a stationary character. It is necessary to take into account the situation when both the useful signal and the interference signals propagate through the ionospheric channel. The situation characteristic of the medium-wave range was not considered when the useful signal propagates with the help of the earth wave, and the interference signals through the ionospheric. For additional research, a two-channel software simulator of the ionospheric radio channel was developed.

Abstract

The Russian digital terrestrial broadcasting network in the DVB-T2 standard is designed to reach the digital population in accordance with the Federal Target Program. At the same time, mandatory publicly available TV programs that are part of the First Multiplex in each of the regions are subject to modification in accordance with the requirements of broadcasting organizations. The aim of this work is to analyze the methods for organizing broadcasting of the First Multiplex in the DVB-T2 standard with the insertion of regional content in various options for building a digital terrestrial broadcasting network in the Russian Federation. The digital terrestrial broadcasting network of the Russian Federation consists of 82 regional networks, at the center of each of which is the regional multiplex formation center (RCFM). To compare the various options for building a network, it is accepted that in each region, with the exception of Moscow, the Moscow Region, St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region, three television and radio channels will be modified: Russia 1, Radio Russia and Russia 24.
