Constrained Blind Source Separation by Morphological Characteristics and Its Application in Modal Analysis
Semi-blind source separation algorithm is widely concerned for its advantages over classical blind source separation algorithm. However, in practical applications, it is often a difficult problem to design reference signals, which should be closely related to the desired source signals. Therefore the algorithm of constrained blind source separation by morphological characteristics is proposed in this paper, including three steps: the establishment of the enhanced contrast function, the optimization calculation and the extraction of multiple source signals. Firstly, the indexes measuring the morphological characteristics of a source signal are constructed based on the known prior information and introduced into the traditional contrast function to establish an enhanced contrast function, extending the use of prior information. Then, the optimization calculation is accomplished by genetic algorithm, obtaining a single source signal. Finally, the extraction of multiple source signals is realized by cluster analysis. The proposed algorithm is applied to the modal analysis under random excitation. The spectrum symmetry index is constructed and introduced into the kurtosis contrast function to establish the enhanced contrast function, thus realizing the extraction of each signal modal response. The extraction results show the effectiveness and superiority of the algorithm.
