Notice: As of 2014 and for the forthcoming years, the publication frequency/periodicity of WSEAS Journals is adapted to the 'continuously updated' model. What this means is that instead of being separated into issues, new papers will be added on a continuous basis, allowing a more regular flow and shorter publication times. The papers will appear in reverse order, therefore the most recent one will be on top.

ABSTRACT: In order to mitigate the negative impact of a non-stationary signal on the adaptive filter coefficients and to improve the trading off between convergence rate and steady-state error at various input levels, a new time adjusting step size LMS algorithm is proposed. The theoretical analysis of its mean square deviation (MSD) is investigated in this paper. Its closed-form expressions of mean square deviation for the transient and steady-state stages are also estimated. This new approach aims to reduce the steady-state MSD of the coefficients at high levels of input power signal without a scarifying on the speed of convergence as common in the conventional LMS and other VSSLMS approaches. We do so by developing an individual time adjusting step size based logarithmic function for each tap of the adaptive filter. It is found that the steady-state MSD depends directly on the minimum step size value when the reduction rate of step size is faster than the changing rate of the optimal coefficients. Based on the implementation of the adaptive noise cancellation, simulation results show the superiority of the proposed technique in term of possessing the lowest MSD at various input variances compared with others. Moreover, the proposed technique outperforms the compared algorithms in the matter of tracking a time-vary noise channel.
