Antenna Arrays make use of techniques like Maximal Ratio Combining or Diversity is combining to achieve high Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR). The two kinds of the major algorithms used are Direction of Arrival (DOA) and Beam forming. This paper studies and performs the performance analysis of existing beam forming algorithms, namely Least Mean Square (LMS), Recursive Least Mean Square (RLS), Griffiths and Variable Step Size Griffiths (VSSG). The algorithms are simulated for various cases Low RF Sources and Single Interference, Large RF Source and Single Interference, Low RF Sources and Multiple Interference angles and finally in the case of Large RF sources and multiple interference angles.
