A multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) recursive least squares (RLS) algorithm is developed to shape and control the Loran-C RF pulse of the AN/FPN-44A tube type transmitter. The control algorithm is incorporated into a transmitter simulation program, where it seeks to produce an optimal transmitter drive waveform (TDW). An optimal TDW produces a near ideal RF pulse. The control algorithm uses a MIMO reference model of the transmitter; parameters of the model are obtained using recursive least squares multichannel time series techniques. The MIMO reference model has the ability to adapt to the non-LTI characteristics of the simulated transmitter. The MMO RLS control algorithm is implemented in both an ideal and a realistic noisy environment. In the ideal environment, when representing the RF pulse with parameters of its half-cycle peak amplitudes and zero-crossings, the MIMO RLS controller is able to shape the RF pulse and control its zero-crossings. Quantization and system noise in the non-ideal environment results in performance deterioration of the control algorithm. The performance of the MIMO RLS algorithm is compared against another method of control, the steepest descent algorithm.
