2 State of the art The basic IIR filter is characterized by the following equation : Where h(k) is the impulse response of the filter which is theoretically infinite in duration

3 b k and a k are the coefficients of the filter x(n) and y(n) are the input and output to the filter Transfer function for the IIR filter is :

4 Zeros are those values of z which H(z) becomes zero Poles are values of z for which H(z) is infinite

5 The important thing is to find suitable values for the coefficients b k and a k Note that the current output y(n) is a function of the past outputs y(n-k). So that it show the feedback system of some sort The strength of IIR filters comes from the flexibility the feedback arrangement provides Remember that the transfer function of IIR filter can be shown as the pole and zero equations

6 For frequency selective filters, such as lowpass and bandpass filters, the frequency response specifications are often in the form of tolerance scheme Here is an example tolerance scheme for an IIR bandpass filter

7 ε 2 : passband ripple parameter δ p : passband deviation δ s : stopband deviation f p1 and f p2 : passband edge frequency f p1 and f p2 : stopband edge frequency A p : passband ripple = 10. log 10 (1+ ε 2 ) = 20. log 10 (1- δ p ) A s : stopband attenuation = -20. log 10 (δ s ) The band edge frequencies are sometimes given in normalized form, that is a fraction of the sampling frequency

8 Coefficient calculation methods for IIR filters There are 4 methods to calculate the coefficients : 1.Pole-zero placement 2.Impulse invariant 3.Matched z-transform 4.Bilinear z-transform Learn carefully

9 Pole-zero placement Method The idea is : when a zero is placed at a given point on the z-plane, the frequency response will be zero at the corresponding point while a pole produces a peak at the corresponding frequency point Note that for the coefficient of the filter to be real, the poles and zeros must either be real


11 Example A bandpass digital filter which is required to meet the following specifications : - complete signal rejection at dc and 250 Hz - a narrow passband centered at 125 Hz - a 3dB bandwidth of 10 Hz Assume the sampling frequency of 500 Hz

12 Solution Fist we must determine where to place the poles and zeros on the z-plane. Watch the frequency on 250 Hz and 125 Hz Zeros are at angles of 0 o and 360 o x 250/500 = 180 o and the place poles at o x 125/500 = +-90 o The radius, r, of the poles is determined by the desi- red bandwidth. An approximate relationship between r, for r > 0.9 and bandwidth bw is given by : r = 1 – (bw/Fs).π So that, by substituting the value of bw=10 Hz and Fs=500 Hz, giving r = After it, we can draw the pole-zero diagram below :


14 From the pole-zero diagram, the transfer function can be written as follow :

15 So that, the difference equation is : Look at again the transfer function. It shows filter which is a second-order section, with coefficients : b 0 = 1a 1 = 0 b 1 = 0a 2 = b 2 = -1

16 Converting analogue filters into equivalent digital filters This represents the most successful approach of obtaining the coefficients of IIR filters Two common approaches: – The impulse invariant – The matched z-transform – The bilinear z-transform

17 Impulse Invariant Method First, consider these component : - H (s) : a suitable analog transfer function - h (t ) : the impulse response - h (nT) : z transforming with T sampling interval - H (z) : desired transfer function Those component are useful and obtained by using Laplace Transform and also z-transformation

18 Illustrating The Impulse Invariant Method Digitize, using the impulse invariant method, the simple analogue filter with the transfer function given by:

19 The impulse response of the equivalent digital filter The transfer function of H(z) is obtained by z- transforming h(nT)

20 We can write So

21 For the case when M = 2 If the poles are conjugates, then

22 Here are the steps in Impulse Invariant Method : 1.Determine a normalized analog filter H(s) that satisfies the specifications for the desired digital filter 2.If necessary, expand H(s) using partial fraction to simplify the next step 3.Obtain the z-transform of each partial fraction to obtain :

23 4. Obtain H(z) by combining the z-transforms of the partial fractions into second-order terms and possibly one-first-order term. If the actual sampling frequency is used then multiply H(z) by T

24 Example It is required to design a digital filter to approximate the following normalized analogue transfer function Assumed a 3 dB cutoff frequency of 150 Hz and a sampling frequency of 1.28 kHz

25 Solution We need to scale the normalized transfer function This is achieved by replacing s by s/α, where Thus


27 To keep the gain down and to avoid overflows when the filter is implemented, it is common to multiply H(z) by T or divide it by the sampling frequency

28 Matched z-transform (MZT) method It provides a simple way to convert an analog filter into an equivalent digital filter The idea is : each of the poles and zeros of the analog filter is mapped directly from the s-plane to the z- plane using the following equation : It maps a pole or zero at the location s=a in the s- plane, onto a pole or zero in the z-plane at z=e aT

29 In case where M = N =2 and the poles and zeros are conjugates

30 Having a filter with a 3 dB cutoff frequency of 150 Hz in sampling frequency of 1.28 kHz. The normalized of transfer function of an analog filter is given by : Example

31 The cutoff frequency may be expressed as ω c = 2π x 150 = rad/s. The transfer function of the denormalized analog filter is obtained by repla- cing s by s/ω c : Find poles by abc formula

32 Remember : so that : We have the real and imaginary poles :

33 Then, p r T = cos (p i T) = p i T = e prT = The transfer function become :

34 Bilinear z-transform (BZT) Method It is the most important method The idea is: to convert an analog filter H(s) into an equivalent digital filter is to replace s as follow: That transformation maps the analog transfer function, H(s), from the s-plane into the discrete transfer function, H(z), in the z-plane

35 Look at the figure below. It shows the transforma-tion using BZT method S-planeZ-plane

36 Direct replacement of s in H(s) may lead to a digital filter with undesirable response We find that the analogue frequency ω’ and the digital frequency ω are related as We can see that ω’ and ω are almost linear for small values of ω, but becomes not linear for large values of ω, leading to distortion (warping)

37 This effect is compensated by prewarping tha analogue filter before applying the bilinear transformation

38 Here are the steps for using BZT 1.Use the digital filter specifications to find suitable normalized, prototype, analog low pass filter H(s) 2.Determine and prewarpe the bandedge or critical frequencies of the desired filter when : ω p = specified cutoff frequency ω p ’ = prewarped cutoff frequency

39 Remember that in bandpass and bandstop filter, there are the lower and upper passband edge frequencies or we can say ω p1 ’ and ω p2 ’. 3. Denormalize the analog prototype filter by replacing s in the transfer function, H(s), using these following transformation :

40 lowpass to lowpass lowpass to highpass lowpass to bandpass lowpass to bandstop

41 4. Apply the BZT to obtain the desired digital filter transfer function, H(z), by replacing s in the frequency- scaled (i.e. denormalized) transfer function, H’(s) as follows

42 Example Determine the transfer function and the difference equation for the digital equivalent of the analogue lowpass filter transfer function Assume a sampling frequency of 150 Hz and a cutoff frequency of 30 Hz

43 Solution The critical frequency The cutoff frequency after prewarping With T = 1/150 Hz, so

44 Denormalized analogue filter The difference equation

45 When it transfers into highpass filter Simplifying

46 Classical Analog Filter There are four types of Classical Analog filter : 1.Butterworth filter 2.Chebysev type I 3.Chebysev type II 4.Elliptic All types of filter are derived from lowpass prototype filter

47 Butterworth Filter Here is sketch of frequency response on Butterworth filter

48 The important equations on Butterworth filter are : Magnitude square Frequency response Filter order

49 Butterworth filter contains zero at infinity and poles:

50 n Butterworth polynomials, normalized

51 Chebysev Filter Chebysev Type I : equal ripple in the passband, monotonic in the stopband Chebysev Type II : equal ripple in the stopband, monotonic in the passband Chebysev Type I Chebyshev polynomial which exhibits equal ripple in the passband Determine the passband ripple

52 The poles of the normalized Chebyshev

53 Here is sketch of frequency response on Chebysev Type 1 Type 2

54 Elliptic Filter The elliptic filter exhibits equiripple behavior in both the passband and the stopband This is the following magnitude-squared response: G N (ω’) is a Chebysev rational function

55 Here is sketch of frequency response on Elliptics

56 The critical frequencies: 0, 1,






62 Example Obtain the transfer function of a lowpass digital filter meeting the following specifications: – Passband 0 – 60 Hz – Stopband > 85 Hz – Stopband attenuation > 15 dB Assume a sampling frequency of 256 Hz and a Butterworth characteristic

63 Solution This illustrates how to combine steps 4 and 5 in the BZT process The critical frequencies

64 The prewarped equivalent analogue frequencies We need to obtain H(s) with Butterworth characteristics, a 3 dB cutoff of and a response at 85 Hz that is down by 15 dB

65 For attenuation 15 dB and a passband ripple of 3 dB we get N = We use N = 3. A normalized third order filter
