Transfer function
Input x(t) Black-box system Output y(t)

Consider an input-output system from x(t) to y(t) whose dynamic model has the form:

dn d n 1 dm y (t ) + a1 n 1 y (t ) + ... + an y (t ) = b0 m x(t ) + ... + bm x(t ) n dt dt dt


Assume all initial conditions are zero, we get the transfer function(TF) of the system as

Properties of transfer function


The transfer function is defined only for a linear time-invariant system, not for nonlinear system. All initial conditions of the system are set to zero. The transfer function is independent of the input of the system.

Note: stability of linear single-input, single-output systems is completely governed by the roots of the characteristics equation.

Diff_Eq_12_2012/201 3

14

Significance of poles
The nature and value of the poles determine whether the system is stable or instable, and the type of response The nature and value of any pole is classified as a function of its location in the plan defined by: the Real part and Imaginary part of the pole [or in other words the s-domain]

Im(s) Re(s)

Stability Criterion vs Pole Locations Im ( s )


Stable Unstable

Re ( s )
The locations of poles in s-domain determine Diff_Eq_12_2012/201 whether the system is stable or unstable. 3

Stability Criterion based on the Pole Locations


A system is stable if all its poles have negative real parts (i.e., there are all strictly inside the left-side s-plane) and unstable otherwise
Note: This criterion is valid only if the system is
Diff_Eq_12_2012/201 3

linear time-invariant (i.e., has constant parameters).

The Fourier Transform

Introduction
Fourier transform is another method to transform a signal from time domain to frequency domain The basic idea of Fourier transform comes from the complex Fourier series Practically, many signals are non-periodic Fourier transform use the principal of the Fourier series, with assumption that the period of the non-periodic signal is infinity (T ). Diff_Eq_12_2012/201

Recall the complex form of Fourier series:


f (t ) =
n =

c e
n

jn0t

(2.1)

where

1 jn0t cn = f (t )e dt T T / 2

T /2

(2.2)

Substituting (2.2) into (2.1) gives


jn0t 1 T /2 jn0t f (t ) = f (t )e dt e n = T T / 2 Diff_Eq_12_2012/201

G ( j ) e jt d = g ( t )

jt 1 [ g ( t ) ] = g t e dt = G ( ) ( ) 2 jt 1 [G ( )] = G e d = g ( t ) ( ) 2 1

[ g ( t )] = g ( t ) e j 2 ft dt = G ( f )

[G ( f )] = G ( f ) e j 2 ft d = g ( t )

A physical process can be described either in the time domain by a function of time t, g(t), or in the frequency domain as a function of frequency f, G(f). g(t) and G(f) are two different representations of the same process.

Analysis

Generally, the Fourier transform F(j) exists when the Fourier integral converges A condition for a function f(t) to have a Fourier transform is, f(t) can be completely integrable, i.e.

f (t ) dt <

This condition is sufficient but not necessary

Diff_Eq_12_2012/201 3

Example 1
Using the definition, find the Fourier transform of (t). Then deduce the Fourier transform of 1.

*Recall the sifting property:

(t a) f (t )dt = f (a)

The Fourier transform of f (t) = (t) is

F () = F{ (t)} = (t)e jt dt = e j0 = e0 = 1
Diff_Eq_12_2012/201 3

Principle of duality
The definition of Fourier transform is
F ( j ) = F { f (t )} =

f (t )e j t d

(2.4)

and the inverse Fourier transform is


1 1 f (t ) = F {F ( j )} = 2

F ( j )e j t d

(2.5)

Note that the function f (t) and its transform F(j) can be derived from each Diff_Eq_12_2012/201 3 other

From (2.5),
1 f (t ) = 2

F ( j )e j t d

If we interchange t and
1 f ( ) = 2 1 f ( ) = 2

F ( jt)e
j t

j t

dt

And replace with


F( jt)e

1 dt = F {F ( jt )} 2

or

F {F ( jt )} = 2 f ( )

For example, using integration, the Fourier transform of 1 is


j + j e e e F {1} = 1e jt dt = =? = j j jt

At first, we may conclude that 1 has no Fourier transform, but in fact, it can be found using the principle of duality!

Diff_Eq_12_2012/201 3

Solution
The Fourier transform of f (t) = (t) is

F () = F{ (t)} = (t)e jt dt = e j0 = e0 = 1

Then, using the duality principle, the Fourier transform of 1 is F {1} = 2f ( ) = 2 ( ) = 2 ( ) since ( ) = ( ).
