System Swarm for Equalization of Nonlinear Channels

Padma Charan Sahu, Sunita Panda, Ratnakar Dash


In order to improve the performance of digital communication system, here the author proposes equalization of nonlinear channels by using ANN trained with PSO. Broad recreations introduced during this paper shows that, when contrasted with other ANN based equalizers additionally as Neuro-fuzzy equalizers the proposed equalizer performs better by and large condition


Keywords: ANN, PSO, channel equalization
