Let this system now have input given by x t = 5 t 1 3 t 4 . Compute the output of the system. Express your answer in three ways: (a) as a sum of scaled and delayed impulse responses, (b) as a piecewise solution, and (c) as a plot of the system output y t over 1 t 6. DETAILED SOLUTION: (a) Scaled and delayed impulse responses : The output y t is the convolution of input x t and impulse response h t . The convolution integral has been derived to be y t = Z = x h t d a The function x is obtain by replacing t with in the x t given in the problem statement: x = x t t = h 5 t 1 3 t 4 i t b The t notation in b signifies t replaced by . Evaluating b then gives x = 5 1 3 4 c Now substitute c into a : y t = Z = h 5 1 3 4 i h t d d Simplify d into two separate integrals: y t = 5 Z = 1 h t d 3 Z = 4 h t d e Next, recall that evaluating an integral containing an impulse is simple: the result is the other function evaluated at the location of the impulse. In each of the above integrals the other function is h t . Thus, equation e simplifies to y t = 5 h t = 1 3 h t = 4 f Evaluating f then simplifies to the desired scaled and delayed impulse response form y t = 5 h t 1 3 h t 4 g ECE 301 Detailed Solutions  Set 3: Continuous Convolution I 2 31 (cont.) (b) Piecewise solution : To obtain the piecewise solution for h t , rewrite the delayed impulse responses in g using the replacement notation: y t = 5 h t t t 1 3 h t t t 4 h Using the h t given in the problem statement, the replacements required in h are given by h t t t 1 = e 2 t u t t t 1 = e 2 t 1 u t 1 i h t t t 4 = e 2 t u t t t 4 = e 2 t 4 u t 4 j Substituting i and j into h then gives y t = 5 e 2 t 1 u t 1 3 e 2 t 4 u t 4 k To obtain the piecewise solution from k , evaluate k over the entire range of time t . For t < 1, both unit steps in k are zero, and therefore y t = 0 over this range. As an equation, y t = ; t < 1 l For the range 1 t < 4, the unit step u t 1 in k is one, but the unit step u t 4 in k is still zero. This gives the result y t =...
