Signals and Systems: Preface

Aim of the study element:

To provide an introduction for signals and system analysis. The module includes discrete-time and variable-time signals, Fourier and Z transformations, and analysis of complex time invariant systems.

Learning outcome

Having successfully completed this element you will be able to:

  • Understand and apply fundamentals of signal and sysem analysis.
  • Calculate and analyse discrete- and continuous-time signals.
  • Characterise periodic signals, to use Fourie, Laplace and Z transformations.
  • Conduct time and frequency characterisation of systems and signals.

Covered topics

  • Signals and systems introduction.
  • Frequency and time characterisation of systems and signals.
  • Linear-time-relevant systems.
  • Periodic signals, Fourier model.
  • Continuous- and discrete-time Fourier model.
  • The Laplace and Z-transformations.
  • System feedback.
