2 CHAPTER Time-Domain Representations of LTI Systems 2.3 Convolution Sum Evaluation Procedure 1. Convolution sum: k = independent variable 2. Define the intermediate signal: (2.5) n is treated as a constant by writing n as a subscript on w. h [n  k] = h [ (k  n)] is a reflected (because of  k) and time-shifted (by  n) version of h [k]. 3. Since The time shift n determines the time at which we evaluate the output of the system. (2.6) Example 2.2 Convolution Sum Evaluation by using Intermediate Signal Consider a system with impulse response Use Eq.

2 CHAPTER Time-Domain Representations of LTI Systems Procedure 2.1: Reflect and Shift Convolution Sum Evaluation 1. Graph both x[k] and h[n  k] as a function of the independent variable k. To determine h[n  k] , first reflect h[k] about k = 0 to obtain h[ k]. Then shift by  n. 2. Begin with n large and negative. That is, shift h[  k] to the far left on the time axis. 3. Write the mathematical representation for the intermediate signal wn[k]. 4. Increase the shift n (i.e., move h[n  k] toward the right) until the mathematical representation for wn[k] changes. The value of n at which the change occurs defines the end of the current interval and the beginning of a new interval. 5. Let n be in the new interval. Repeat step 3 and 4 until all intervals of times shifts and the corresponding mathematical representations for wn[k] are identified. This usually implies increasing n to a very large positive number. 6. For each interval of time shifts, sum all the values of the corresponding wn[k] to obtain y[n] on that interval.

2 CHAPTER Time-Domain Representations of LTI Systems Example 2.5 Investment Computation The first-order recursive system is used to describe the value of an investment earning compound interest at a fixed rate of r % per period if we set  = 1 + (r/100). Let y[n] be the value of the investment at the start of period n. If there are no deposits or withdrawals, then the value at time n is expressed in terms of the value at the previous time as y[n] =  y[n  1]. Now, suppose x[n] is the amount deposited (x[n] > 0) or withdrawn (x[n] < 0) at the start of period n. In this case, the value of the amount is expressed by the first-order recursive equation We use convolution to find the value of an investment earning 8 % per year if \$1000 is deposited at the start of each year for 10 years and then \$1500 is withdrawn at the start each year for 7 years. <Sol.> 1. Prediction: Account balance to grow for the first 10 year, and to decrease during next 7 years, and afterwards to continue growing. 2. By using the reflect-and-shift convolution sum evaluation procedure, we can evaluate y[n] = x[n]  h[n], where x[n] is depicted in Fig. 2.6 and h[n] =  n u[n] is as shown in Example 2.4 with  = 1.08.

Time-Domain Representations of LTI Systems
2 CHAPTER Time-Domain Representations of LTI Systems Procedure 2.2: Reflect and Shift Convolution Integral Evaluation 1. Graph both x() and h(t  ) as a function of the independent variable  . To obtain h(t  ), reflect h() about  = 0 to obtain h(   ) and then h(   ) shift by  t. 2. Begin with the shift t large and negative. That is, shift h(   ) to the far left on the time axis. 3. Write the mathematical representation for the intermediate signal wt (). 4. Increase the shift t (i.e., move h(t  ) toward the right) until the mathematical representation for wt () changes. The value of t at which the change occurs defines the end of the current set and the beginning of a new set. 5. Let t be in the new set. Repeat step 3 and 4 until all sets of shifts t and the corresponding mathematical representations for wt () are identified. This usually implies increasing t to a very large positive number. 6. For each sets of shifts t, integrate wt () from  =   to  =  to obtain y(t).

2 CHAPTER Time-Domain Representations of LTI Systems Fig (f). Example 2.9 Radar range Measurement: Propagation Model We identify an LTI system describing the propagation of the pulse. Let the transmitted RF pulse be given by as shown in Fig (a). Suppose we transmit an impulse from the radar to determine the impulse response of the round-trip propagation to the target. The impulse is delay in time and attenuated in amplitude, which results in the impulse response h(t) = a  (t   ), where a represents the attenuation factor and  the round-trip time delay. Use the convolution of x(t) with h(t) to verify this result.

Time-Domain Representations of LTI Systems
2 CHAPTER Time-Domain Representations of LTI Systems <Sol.> 1. Find h(t  ): Reflecting h(t) = a  (t   ) about  = 0 gives h(  ) = a  ( +  ), since the impulse has even symmetry. 2. Shift the independent variable  by  t to obtain h(t  ) = a  (  (t   )). 3. Substitute this equation for h(t   ) into the convolution integral of Eq. (2.12), and use the shifting property of the impulse to obtain the received signal as Figure (p. 124) Radar range measurement. (a) Transmitted RF pulse. (b) The received echo is an attenuated and delayed version of the transmitted pulse.

Time-Domain Representations of LTI Systems
2 CHAPTER Time-Domain Representations of LTI Systems Example 2.10 Radar range Measurement (continued): The Matched Filter In Ex. 2.9, the received signal is contaminated with noise (e.g., the thermal noise, discussed in section 1.9) and may weak. For these reasons, the time delay is determined by passing the received signal through an LTI system commonly referred to as a matched filter. An important property of this system is that it optimally discriminates against certain types of noise in the received waveform. The impulse response of the matched filter is a reflected, or time-reversed, version of the transmitted signal x(t). That is, hm(t) = x( t), so As shown in Fig (a). The terminology “matched filter” refers to the fact that the impulse response of the radar receiver is “matched” to the transmitted signal. To estimate the time delay from the matched filter output, we evaluate the convolution <Sol.> 1. Intermediate signal:
