The induced polarization receiver Frýdecký, Ivan Igor


The induced polarization receiver capable of detecting the intermodulation coupling products caused by the electrically nonlinear ground employing adaptive filters is designed and constructed. The sum of two sine waves is transmitted to the ground. The first adaptive notch filter rejects the received signal at the transmitted frequencies. The second adaptive notch filter is used as a spectrum analyzer to measure the Fourier coefficients at eight discrete intermodulation frequencies. The receiver was tested for its ability to recognized the intermodulation products and calibrated.
