Optimisation of Cognitive Engine Design using Cultural Algorithm


Objectives: To optimize the design of cognitive radio engine using Cultural Algorithm (CA). The simulated results are compared with commonly used Evolutionary Algorithms (EA) like Particle Swarm Optimisation (PSO) and Genetic Algorithm (GA). Methods/Statistical Analysis: Use of CA has been proposed to find a suitable fitness score under varying channel conditions over multiple iterations. Matlab has been chosen as the platform for simulating various scenarios. An attempt has also been made to optimize the time of convergence. Findings: Simulations indicate that CA emerges as a potential candidate for designing of CR Engine (CRE) for deployment of a CR Network (CRN). Using CA, the fitness score has improved as compared to other EAs. Improvements: The algorithm shows faster convergence and improves its performance with each successive iteration.
