The goal The objective of the course is to inform students about the modelling and characterization of continuous and discrete systems. Also, the goal is for students to understand basic tools for signals and systems analysis in time, frequency and complex domain.
The outcome After the passing this exam, students will have the skills to classify and analyze the experimentally measured signals, to make basic experiments on systems, and to apply different techniques for signals and systems analysis (Fourier series, Fourier transformation, Laplace transformation, zed transformation).
Contents of lectures Signals and systems classification; Systems properties; Fourier series of periodic signals; Fourier transformation; Bode diagrams; Laplace transformation; Transfer function; Stability and causality of continuous and discrete LTI systems; Zed transformation of discrete signals; Shannon theorem of signals sampling; Discrete Fourier transform.
Contents of exercises Within this course, students have the obligation of solving three practical problems: 1. Calculation of signals convolution; 2. approximation of periodic signals using MATLAB; 3. calculation of system frequency response.
