Estimated mean squared error for adaptive filters

The mean squared error (MSE) measures the average of the squares of the errors between the desired signal and the primary signal input to the adaptive filter. Reducing this error converges the primary input to the desired signal. Determine the predicted value of MSE and the simulated value of MSE at each time instant using the `msepred`

and `msesim`

functions. Compare these MSE values with each other and with respect to the minimum MSE and steady-state MSE values. In addition, compute the sum of the squares of the coefficient errors given by the trace of the coefficient covariance matrix.

**Note**: If you are using R2016a or an earlier release, replace each call to the object with the equivalent step syntax. For example, `obj(x)`

becomes `step(obj,x)`

.

**Initialization**

Create a `dsp.FIRFilter`

System object™ that represents the unknown system. Pass the signal, `x`

*,* to the FIR filter. The output of the unknown system is the desired signal, `d`

, which is the sum of the output of the unknown system (FIR filter) and an additive noise signal, `n`

.

num = fir1(31,0.5); fir = dsp.FIRFilter('Numerator',num); iir = dsp.IIRFilter('Numerator',sqrt(0.75),... 'Denominator',[1 -0.5]); x = iir(sign(randn(2000,25))); n = 0.1*randn(size(x)); d = fir(x) + n;

**LMS Filter**

Create a `dsp.LMSFilter`

System object to create a filter that adapts to output the desired signal. Set the length of the adaptive filter to 32 taps, step size to 0.008, and the decimation factor for analysis and simulation to 5. The variable `simmse`

represents the simulated MSE between the output of the unknown system, `d`

, and the output of the adaptive filter. The variable `mse`

gives the corresponding predicted value.

l = 32; mu = 0.008; m = 5; lms = dsp.LMSFilter('Length',l,'StepSize',mu); [mmse,emse,meanW,mse,traceK] = msepred(lms,x,d,m); [simmse,meanWsim,Wsim,traceKsim] = msesim(lms,x,d,m);

**Plot the MSE Results**

Compare the values of simulated MSE, predicted MSE, minimum MSE, and the final MSE. The final MSE value is given by the sum of minimum MSE and excess MSE.

nn = m:m:size(x,1); semilogy(nn,simmse,[0 size(x,1)],[(emse+mmse)... (emse+mmse)],nn,mse,[0 size(x,1)],[mmse mmse]) title('Mean Squared Error Performance') axis([0 size(x,1) 0.001 10]) legend('MSE (Sim.)','Final MSE','MSE','Min. MSE') xlabel('Time Index') ylabel('Squared Error Value')

The predicted MSE follows the same trajectory as the simulated MSE. Both these trajectories converge with the steady-state (final) MSE.

**Plot the Coefficient Trajectories**

`meanWsim`

is the mean value of the simulated coefficients given by `msesim`

. `meanW`

is the mean value of the predicted coefficients given by `msepred`

.

Compare the simulated and predicted mean values of LMS filter coefficients 12,13,14, and 15.

plot(nn,meanWsim(:,12),'b',nn,meanW(:,12),'r',nn,... meanWsim(:,13:15),'b',nn,meanW(:,13:15),'r') PlotTitle ={'Average Coefficient Trajectories for';... 'W(12), W(13), W(14), and W(15)'}

`PlotTitle = `*2x1 cell*
{'Average Coefficient Trajectories for'}
{'W(12), W(13), W(14), and W(15)' }

title(PlotTitle) legend('Simulation','Theory') xlabel('Time Index') ylabel('Coefficient Value')

In steady state, both the trajectories converge.

**Sum of Squared Coefficient Errors**

Compare the sum of the squared coefficient errors given by `msepred`

and `msesim`

. These values are given by the trace of the coefficient covariance matrix.

semilogy(nn,traceKsim,nn,traceK,'r') title('Sum-of-Squared Coefficient Errors') axis([0 size(x,1) 0.0001 1]) legend('Simulation','Theory') xlabel('Time Index') ylabel('Squared Error Value')

Identify an unknown system by performing active noise control using a filtered-x LMS algorithm. The objective of the adaptive filter is to minimize the error signal between the output of the adaptive filter and the output of the unknown system (or the system to be identified). Once the error signal is minimal, the unknown system converges to the adaptive filter.

**Note**: If you are using R2016a or an earlier release, replace each call to the object with the equivalent step syntax. For example, `obj(x)`

becomes `step(obj,x)`

.

**Initialization**

Create a `dsp.FIRFilter`

System object that represents the system to be identified. Pass the signal, `x`

, to the FIR filter. The output of the unknown system is the desired signal, `d`

, which is the sum of the output of the unknown system (FIR filter) and an additive noise signal, `n`

.

num = fir1(31,0.5); fir = dsp.FIRFilter('Numerator',num); iir = dsp.IIRFilter('Numerator',sqrt(0.75),... 'Denominator',[1 -0.5]); x = iir(sign(randn(2000,25))); n = 0.1*randn(size(x)); d = fir(x) + n;

**Adaptive Filter**

Create a `dsp.FilteredXLMSFilter`

System object to create an adaptive filter that uses the filtered-x LMS algorithm. Set the length of the adaptive filter to 32 taps, step size to 0.008, and the decimation factor for analysis and simulation to 5. The variable `simmse`

represents the error between the output of the unknown system, `d`

, and the output of the adaptive filter.

l = 32; mu = 0.008; m = 5; fxlms = dsp.FilteredXLMSFilter(l,'StepSize',mu); [simmse,meanWsim,Wsim,traceKsim] = msesim(fxlms,x,d,m); plot(m*(1:length(simmse)),10*log10(simmse)) xlabel('Iteration') ylabel('MSE (dB)') title('Learning curve for Filtered-x LMS filter used in system identification')

With each iteration of adaptation, the value of `simmse`

decreases to a minimal value, indicating that the unknown system has converged to the adaptive filter.

**Note**: If you are using R2016a or an earlier release, replace each call to the object with the equivalent `step`

syntax. For example, `obj(x)`

becomes `step(obj,x)`

.

ha = fir1(31,0.5); fir = dsp.FIRFilter('Numerator',ha); % FIR system to be identified iir = dsp.IIRFilter('Numerator',sqrt(0.75),... 'Denominator',[1 -0.5]); x = iir(sign(randn(2000,25))); n = 0.1*randn(size(x)); % Observation noise signal d = fir(x)+n; % Desired signal l = 32; % Filter length m = 5; % Decimation factor for analysis % and simulation results ha = dsp.AdaptiveLatticeFilter(l); [simmse,meanWsim,Wsim,traceKsim] = msesim(ha,x,d,m); plot(m*(1:length(simmse)),10*log10(simmse)); xlabel('Iteration'); ylabel('MSE (dB)'); title('Learning curve for Adaptive Lattice filter used in system identification')

**Note**: If you are using R2016a or an earlier release, replace each call to the object with the equivalent `step`

syntax. For example, `obj(x)`

becomes `step(obj,x)`

.

fir = fir1(31,0.5); firFilter = dsp.FIRFilter('Numerator',fir); % FIR system to be identified iirFilter = dsp.IIRFilter('Numerator',sqrt(0.75),... 'Denominator',[1 -0.5]); x = iirFilter(sign(randn(2000,25))); n = 0.1*randn(size(x)); % Observation noise signal d = firFilter(x)+n; % Desired signal l = 32; % Filter length mu = 0.008; % Block LMS Step size. m = 32; % Decimation factor for analysis % and simulation results fir = dsp.BlockLMSFilter(l,'StepSize',mu); [simmse,meanWsim,Wsim,traceKsim] = msesim(fir,x,d,m); plot(m*(1:length(simmse)),10*log10(simmse)); xlabel('Iteration'); ylabel('MSE (dB)'); title('Learning curve for block LMS filter used in system identification')

**Note**: If you are using R2016a or an earlier release, replace each call to the object with the equivalent `step`

syntax. For example, `obj(x)`

becomes `step(obj,x)`

.

ha = fir1(31,0.5); fir = dsp.FIRFilter('Numerator',ha); % FIR system to be identified iir = dsp.IIRFilter('Numerator',sqrt(0.75),...
