Unformatted text preview: Systems and Signals Lee, Spring 2009-10 EE102 Final Practice Problem 1. Fourier Series A linear amplifier has an output y that is proportional to the input x , y = a 1 x where a 1 is a constant. In practice an amplifier will have a more complex characteristic y = a + a 1 x + a 2 x 2 + a 3 x 3 + If we apply an input x ( t ) = cos( t ) ideally we would get an output spectrum that looks like - - 2 - 3 3 2 1 2 where weve assumed a 1 = 1 for simplicity. In practice we get something different, and this tells us something about the amplifier char- acteristic. For each of the following amplifier characteristics, determine what the output Fourier series spectrum looks like when the inputs is x ( t ) = cos( t ). Hint: What does the spectra of cos n ( t ) look like for different n ? Dont integrate! 1 a) Find the output Fourier series spectrum when the amplifier characteristic is y = x + 0 . 1 x 3 ....
