SIGNALS AND SYSTEMS A
CREDIT POINTS 15

Course Co-ordinator: Dr S Aphale

Pre-requisite(s): EG 2010 (CAS 9).

Note(s): Available only to students following an Honours degree programme.

The course commences with a review of techniques used to analyse and represent signals and systems, such as impulse response, Laplace transformation and state equations. Analogue and digital systems are analysed in the s and z domains respectively, as well as in the time domain, introducing concepts such as transfer functions and frequency response functions. Fourier techniques are used to examine the amplitude and phase spectra of signals. Concepts such as Autocorrelation and Cross correlation of signals as well as noise removal techniques are introduced. Practical work consists of a connected set of three laboratory exercises using Matlab exploring sampling, manipulation and correlation of signals.

27 one-hour lectures, 5 one-hour tutorials and 3 three-hour practicals in total.

1st Attempt: 1 three-hour written examination paper (80%) and in-course assessment (20%).
