Spectrum Sensing through Spectrum Discriminator and Maximum Minimum Eigenvalue Detector: A Comparative Study
2012 (English)In: 2012 IEEE I2MTC - International Instrumentation and Measurement Technology Conference, Proceedings, IEEE , 2012, 2252-2256 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In this paper we present a new spectrum sensing technique for cognitive radios based on discriminant analysis called spectrum discriminator and compare it with the maximum minimum eigenvalue detector. The common feature between those two techniques is that neither prior knowledge about the system noise level nor the primary user signal, that might occupy the band under sensing, is required. Instead the system noise level will be derived from the received signal. The main difference between both techniques is that the spectrum discriminator is a non-parametric technique while the maximum minimum eigenvalue detector is a parametric technique. The comparative study between both has been done based on two performance metrics: the probability of false alarm and the probability of detection. For the spectrum discriminator an accuracy factor called noise uncertainty is defined as the level over which the noise energy may vary. Simulations are performed for different values of noise uncertainty for the spectrum discriminator and different values for the number of received samples and smoothing factor for the maximum minimum eigenvalue detector.
