Unformatted text preview: me-domain techniques or by frequencydomain techniques. T hen why learn both? T he reason is t hat t he two domains offer complementary insights into system behavior. Some aspects are easily grasped in one domain; o ther aspects may be easier to see in t he o ther domain. B oth t he time-domain and t he frequency-domain methods are as essential for t he s tudy o f signals and systems as two eyes are essential t o a h uman being for correct visual perception of reality. A person can see with either eye, b ut for proper perception of three dimensional-reality, b oth eyes are essential. I t is i mportant t o keep t he two domains separate, and not t o mix t he e ntities in t he two domains. I f we a re using t he frequency domain to determine t he s ystem response, we m ust deal with all signals in terms of their spectra (Fourier transforms) and all systems i n t erms of their transfer functions. For example, t o d etermine t he s ystem response y (t) t o a n i nput f (t), we must first convert t he i nput signal into its frequency d omain description F(w). T he s ystem description also must b e in t he frequency-domain; t hat is, t he t ransfer function H (w ). T he o utput signal spectrum Y(w) = F(w)H(w). Thus, t he result (output) is also in t he frequency domain. To determine t he final answer y(t), we m ust take t he inverse transform of Y(w). 4.6 Signal energy F ig. 4 .30 275 Interpretation of Energy spectral density of a signal. Consequently, (4.64) This is t he statement of the well-known P arseval's t heorem (for Fourier transform). A similar result was obtained in Eqs. (3.42)and (3.82) for a periodic signal and its Fourier series. This result allows us to determine the signal energy from either t he time-domain specification f (t) o r the frequency-domain specification F (w) of t he same signal. Equation (4.63) can b e i nterpreted to mean t hat t he energy of a signal f (t) results from energies contributed by all t he s pectral components of t he signal f (t). The total signal energy is t he area under IF(w)21 (divided by 211"). I f we consider a small band l lw (llw - + 0), as illustrated in Fig. 4.30, t he energy l lE f of the spectral components in this band is t he a rea of IF(w)12 u nder this b and (divided by 211"): 1 2 l lEj = 211" IF(w)1 llw = IF(w)1 2 llF 4.6 Signal Energy T he signal energy E f of a signal f (t) was defined in C hapter 1 as Ef = I: 2 If(t)1 dt (4.62) Signal energy c an be related t o t he signal spectrum F(w) by substituting Eq.
