摘要：An adaptive beam former is a device, which is able to steer and modifies an array's beam pattern in order to enhance the reception of a desired signal, while simultaneously suppressing interfering signals through complex weight selection. However, the weight selection is a critical task to get the low Side Lobe Level (SLL) and Low Beam Width. One needs to have a low SLL and low beam width to reduce the antenna's energy radiation/reception ability in unintended directions. The weights can be chosen to minimize the SLL and to place nulls at certain angles. The convergence of the array output towards desired signal is also very important for a good signal processing tool of an adaptive beam former. A vast number of possible window functions are available to calculate the weights for Smart Antennas. From the analysis of many of these algorithms, it is observed that there is a compromise between HPBW and SLL. But in case of smart antennas, both of these parameters must have low values to get good performance. In our earlier work it is proposed that Complex Least Mean Square (CLMS) and Augmented Complex Least Mean Square ( ACLMS) algorithms gives low beam width and side lobe level in noisy environment. Another neural algorithm Adaptive Amplitude Non Linear Gradient Decent algorithm (AANGD) has the advantage of more number of control parameters over CLMS and ACLMS algorithms. In this paper the hybrid of CLMS and AANGD is presented and this novel hybrid algorithm has outperformed the hybrid algorithm of CLMS and ACLMS in the aspect of convergence towards the desired signal
