Understanding Digital Signal Processing with MATLAB   and Solutions

The book discusses receiving signals that most electrical engineers detect and study. The vast majority of signals could never be detected due to random additive signals, known as noise, that distorts them or completely overshadows them. Such examples include an audio signal of the pilot communicating with the ground over the engine noise or a bioengineer listening for a fetus’ heartbeat over the mother’s. The text presents the methods for extracting the desired signals from the noise. Each new development includes examples and exercises that use MATLAB to provide the answer in graphic forms for the reader's comprehension and understanding.

Digital Signal Processing in Power Electronics Control Circuits

Many digital control circuits in current literature are described using analog transmittance. This may not always be acceptable, especially if the sampling frequency and power transistor switching frequencies are close to the band of interest. Therefore, a digital circuit is considered as a digital controller rather than an analog circuit. This helps to avoid errors and instability in high frequency components. Digital Signal Processing in Power Electronics Control Circuits covers problems concerning the design and realization of digital control algorithms for power electronics circuits using digital signal processing (DSP) methods. This book bridges the gap between power electronics and DSP. The following realizations of digital control circuits are considered: digital signal processors, microprocessors, microcontrollers, programmable digital circuits. Discussed in this book is signal processing, starting from analog signal acquisition, through its conversion to digital form, methods of its filtration and separation, and ending with pulse control of output power transistors. The book is focused on two applications for the considered methods of digital signal processing: an active power filter and a digital class D power amplifier. The major benefit to readers is the acquisition of specific knowledge concerning discussions on the processing of signals from voltage or current sensors using a digital signal processor and to the signals controlling the output inverter transistors. Included are some Matlab examples for illustration of the considered problems.

Digital Signal Processing:A Primer with MATLAB® provides excellent coverage of discrete-time signals and systems. At the beginning of each chapter, an abstract states the chapter objectives. All principles are also presented in a lucid, logical, step-by-step approach. As much as possible, the authors avoid wordiness and detail overload that could hide concepts and impede understanding. In recognition of requirements by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) on integrating computer tools, the use of MATLAB® is encouraged in a student-friendly manner. MATLAB is introduced in Appendix C and applied gradually throughout the book. Each illustrative example is immediately followed by practice problems along with its answer. Students can follow the example step-by-step to solve the practice problems without flipping pages or looking at the end of the book for answers. These practice problems test students' comprehension and reinforce key concepts before moving onto the next section. Toward the end of each chapter, the authors discuss some application aspects of the concepts covered in the chapter. The material covered in the chapter is applied to at least one or two practical problems. It helps students see how the concepts are used in real-life situations. Also, thoroughly worked examples are given liberally at the end of every section. These examples give students a solid grasp of the solutions as well as the confidence to solve similar problems themselves. Some of hte problems are solved in two or three ways to facilitate a deeper understanding and comparison of different approaches. Designed for a three-hour semester course, Digital Signal Processing:A Primer with MATLAB® is intended as a textbook for a senior-level undergraduate student in electrical and computer engineering.

The entire series consists of four volumes that collectively cover basic digital signal processing in a practical and accessible manner, but which nonetheless include all essential foundation mathematics. As the series title implies, the scripts (of which there are more than 200) described in the text and supplied in code form (available via the internet at http://www.morganclaypool.com/page/isen) will run on both MATLABâ„¢ and LabVIEWâ„¢. The text for all volumes contains many examples, and many useful computational scripts, augmented by demonstration scripts and LabVIEWâ„¢ Virtual Instruments (VIs) that can be run to illustrate various signal processing concepts graphically on the user's computer. Volume I consists of four chapters that collectively set forth a brief overview of the field of digital signal processing, useful signals and concepts (including convolution, recursion, difference equations, LTI systems, etc), conversion from the continuous to discrete domain and back (i.e., analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog conversion), aliasing, the Nyquist rate, normalized frequency, sample rate conversion and Mu-law compression, and signal processing principles including correlation, the correlation sequence, the Real DFT, correlation by convolution, matched filtering, simple FIR filters, and simple IIR filters. Chapter 4 of Volume I, in particular, provides an intuitive or "first principle" understanding of how digital filtering and frequency transforms work, preparing the reader for the present volume (Volume II). Volume III of the series covers digital filter design (FIR design using Windowing, Frequency Sampling, and Optimum Equiripple techniques, and Classical IIR design) and Volume IV, the culmination of the series, is an introductory treatment of LMS Adaptive Filtering and applications.

Digital Signal Processing

The subject of Digital Signal Processing (DSP) is enormously complex, involving many concepts, probabilities, and signal processing that are woven together in an intricate manner. To cope with this scope and complexity, many DSP texts are often organized around the “numerical examples” of a communication system. With such organization, readers can see through the complexity of DSP, they learn about the distinct concepts and protocols in one part of the communication system while seeing the big picture of how all parts fit together. From a pedagogical perspective, our personal experience has been that such approach indeed works well. Based on the authors’ extensive experience in teaching and research, Digital Signal Processing: A Breadth-First Approach is written with the reader in mind. The book is intended for a course on digital signal processing, for seniors and undergraduate students. The subject has high popularity in the field of electrical and computer engineering, and the authors consider all the needs and tools used in analysis and design of discrete time systems for signal processing.
