DWT Based Energy Detection Spectrum Sensing Method for Cognitive Radio System
In this paper a new blind energy detection spectrum-sensing method based on Discreet Wavelet Transform (DWT) is proposed. The method utilizes the DWT sub-band to collects the received energy. The proposed method recognizes the Primary User (PU) signal from noise only signal using the differences in the collected energy in first and last sub-bands of one level DWT. The simulation results show that the proposed method achieves improved detection probability especially at low Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) compared to Conventional Energy Detector (CED). The results also show that the proposed method has shorter sensing time and less Energy Consumption (EC) compared to CED due to using small number of processed sample. Therefore, this method is suitable for Cognitive Radio (CR) applications where only limited energy like device battery is available.
