This thesis presents a method to calculate the power level of harmonics generated in DRFM due to sampling and quantization process. The Fourier series analysis is used for the calculation of the harmonic levels. Quantization process will generate the harmonics of the fundamental signal which will be folded into the DRFM instantaneous bandwidth by the sampling process. Power level of the harmonics is dependent on the number of quantization bits of analog-to-digital converter. Further it is also dependent on the ratio of signal frequency to sampling frequency. MATLAB programs for computation of harmonic power levels and plots of harmonic power levels of multibit DRFM are included in the thesis. Some applications of the DRFM like deception jammer, broadband frequency source and radar simulator are also discussed

Optimal adaptive estimation algorithm for harmonic current reduction using power limited active line conditioners Zupfer, Joel E. (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1993-12);The ability to measure and compensate for power line harmonics has become a growing area of interest because of today's commonly used electronic equipment. Since the number and relative magnitudes of the harmonics on the ...
Wheaton, Daniel G. (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2011-06);In this thesis, we discuss the design of a controller to reject the effects of high order harmonics in a three-phase power inverter. Specifically, coherent noise in the fifth harmonic is considered, as it seems to be ...
Reducing stator current harmonics for a doubly-fed induction generator connected to a distorted grid Pierce, Seth J. (Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2013-09);The Department of Defense (DoD) is increasing its demand for reliable renewable energy sources. The doubly-fed induction generator (DFIG) is widely used to extract electrical energy from wind and is a useful means for the ...
