EE 3512: Lecture 16, Slide 1 Differential Equations For CT systems, such as circuits, our principal tool is the differential equation. For the circuit shown, we can easily compute the input/output differential equation using Kirchoff’s Law. What is the nature of the impulse response for this circuit?
EE 3512: Lecture 16, Slide 2 Numerical Solutions to Differential Equations Consider our 1st-order diff. eq.: We can solve this numerically by setting t = nT: The derivative can be approximated: Substituting into our diff. eq.: Let and : We can replace n by n-1 to obtain: This is called the Euler approximation to the differential equation. With and initial condition,, the solution is: The CT solution is: Later, we will see that using the Laplace transform, we can obtain: But we can approximate this: Which tells us our 1 st -order approximation is accurate!
EE 3512: Lecture 16, Slide 3 Higher-Order Derivatives We can use the same approach for the second-order derivative: Higher-order derivatives can be similarly approximated. Arbitrary differential equations can be converted to difference equations using this technique. There are many ways to approximate derivatives and to numerically solve differential equations. MATLAB supports both symbolic and numerical solutions. Derivatives are quite tricky to compute for discrete-time signals. However, in addition to the differences method shown above, there are powerful methods for approximating them using statistical regression. Later in the course we will consider the implications of differentiation in the frequency domain.
EE 3512: Lecture 16, Slide 4 Series RC Circuit Example Difference Equation: R=1;C=1;T=0.2; a=-(1-T/R/C);b=[0 T/R/C]; y0=0; x0=1; n=1:40; x=ones(1,length(n)); y1=recur(a, b, n, x, x0, y0); Analytic Solution: t=0:0.04:8; y2=1-exp(-t); y1=[y0 y1]; n=0:40; plot(n*T, y1, ’o’, t, y2, ’-’);
EE 3512: Lecture 16, Slide 5 Using our FT properties: Example: RC Circuit Compute the frequency response: RC = 0.001; W=0:50:5000; H=(1/RC)./(j*w+1/RC); magH=abs(H); angH=180*angle(H)/pi;
EE 3512: Lecture 16, Slide 6 Response of an LTI System to a Sinusoid Consider an LTI CT system with impulse response h(t): We will assume that the Fourier transform of h(t) exists: The output can be computed using our Fourier transform properties: Suppose the input is a sinusoid: Using properties of the Fourier transform, we can compute the output:
EE 3512: Lecture 16, Slide 7 Example: RC Circuit (Cont.) We can compute the output for RC=0.001 and ω 0 =1000 rad/sec: We can compute the output for RC=0.001 and ω 0 =3000 rad/sec: Hence the circuit acts as a lowpass filter. Note the phase is not linear. If the input was the sum of two sinewaves: describe the output.
EE 3512: Lecture 16, Slide 8 Response To Periodic Inputs We can extend our example to all periodic signals using the Fourier series: The output of an LTI system is: We can write the Fourier series for the output as: It is important to observe that since the spectrum of a periodic signal is a line spectrum, the output spectrum is simply a weighted version of the input, where the weights are found by sampling of the frequency response of the LTI system at multiples of the fundamental frequency, 0.
EE 3512: Lecture 16, Slide 9 Example: Rectangular Pulse Train and an RC Circuit Recall the Fourier series for a periodic rectangular pulse: Also recall the system response was: The output can be easily written as:
EE 3512: Lecture 16, Slide 10 Example: Rectangular Pulse Train (Cont.) We can write a similar expression for the output: 1/RC = 1 1/RC = 10 1/RC = 100 We can observe the implications of lowpass filtering this signal. What aspects of the input signal give rise to high frequency components? What are the implications of increasing 1/RC in the circuit? Why are the pulses increasingly rounded for lower values of 1/RC? What causes the oscillations in the signal as 1/RC is increased?
EE 3512: Lecture 16, Slide 11 Response to Nonperiodic Inputs We can recover the output in the time domain using the inverse transform: These integrals are often hard to compute, so we try to circumvent them using transform tables and combinations of transform properties. Consider the response of our RC circuit to a single pulse: MATLAB code for the frequency response: RC=1; w=-40:.3:40; X=2*sin(w/2)./w; H=(1/RC)./(j*w+1/RC); Y=X.*H; magY=abs(Y);
EE 3512: Lecture 16, Slide 12 Response to Nonperiodic Inputs (Cont.) We can recover the output using the inverse Fourier transform: syms X H Y y w X = 2*sin(w/2)./w; H=(1/RC)./(j*w+1/RC); Y=X.*H; Y=ifourier(Y); ezplot(y,[-1 5]); axis([ ]) 1/RC = 1 1/RC = 10 1/RC = 1 1/RC = 10
EE 3512: Lecture 16, Slide 13 Ideal Filters The process of rejecting particular frequencies or a range of frequencies is called filtering. A system that has this characteristic is called a filter. An ideal filter is a filter whose frequency response goes exactly to zero for some frequencies and whose magnitude response is exactly one for other ranges of frequencies. To avoid phase distortion in the filtering process, an ideal filter should have a linear phase characteristic. Why? We will see this “ideal” response has some important implications for the impulse response of the filter. Lowpass Bandpass Highpass Bandstop
EE 3512: Lecture 16, Slide 14 Ideal Linear Phase Lowpass Filter Phase Response Consider the ideal lowpass filter with frequency response: Using the Fourier transform pair for a rectangular pulse, and applying the time-shift property: Is this filter causal? The frequency response of an ideal bandpass filter can be similarly defined: Will this filter be physically realizable? Why? Impulse Response
EE 3512: Lecture 16, Slide 15 Summary Showed that the response of a linear LTI system to a sinusoid is a sinusoid at the same frequency with a different amplitude and phase. Demonstrated how to compute the change in amplitude and phase using the system’s Fourier transform. Demonstrated this for a simple RC circuit. Generalized this to periodic and nonperiodic signals. Worked examples involving a periodic pulse train and a single pulse. Introduced the concept of an ideal filter and discussed several types of ideal filters. Noted that the ideal filter is a noncausal system and is not physically realizable. However, there are many ways to approximate ideal filters, and that is a topic known as filter design.
