Variable Tap-Length Blind Equalization for Underwater Acoustic Communication
In view of the characteristics of underwater acoustic channel, a blind equalization algorithm for underwater acoustic communication based on variable tap length is proposed. On the basis of the normalized modified constant modulus algorithm (MCMA), the algorithm adjusts the length of the tap through the update algorithm to realize the blind equalization of the underwater acoustic channel. The simulation shows that the algorithm adaptively adjusts the length of the taps to the optimal. Compared with the traditional blind equalization algorithm, the performance of the system is improved.
