 December 28, 2005, 04:06 how to get a real signal by inverse FFT #1 xijing Guest   Posts: n/a First I have a real pulse signal of disturbance, I calculated its power spectrum by applying FFT, then I need to remove a specific band of frequency by setting those energy as zero, after that I applied an inverse FFT to get a new signal. But it is a complex series of time. How can I get a real signal which has the energy spectrum absent that specific frequency band? Thank you very much!

I realized that idea is only for ideal filter.so I cannot get a real modified signal by inverse FFT. Now I try to use matlab to remove a narrow band of requency. But I still has problem, someboby please help me: I have a real signal in the time domain.I need to remove a band of frequency from it to get a new real signal. So first I FFT this input real signal and multiply the FFT ouput by a filter function I chose from matlab. I hope I can get a new power spectrum with that designated band of frequency zero. But I tried many ways, I can not get it successfully.Below is my matlab file: % the original pulse input t=0.3721124:0.3721124:0.3721124*160; w=51*1034.631154/1000000; x=0.0082*cos(-t*w); plot(x(1:160)) title('singnal quarter of cosine') xlabel('timestep') % I want to remove the low frequency band from 0.05-0.07, my sampling interval is about 0.372114 ff = [0 0.04*0.37 0.05*0.37 0.07*0.37 0.08*0.37 1]; aa = [1 1 0 0 1 1]; nn = 160; bb = firls(nn,ff,aa); [h,w] = freqz(bb); plot(ff,aa,w/pi,abs(h)) legend('Ideal','firls Design') X=fft(x); Xh = filter(bb,1,X); % fft to get the whole frequency content f=1/0.3721124/160*(0:20); Pxx=Xh.* conj(Xh)/160 We=exp(-10*log(10)); Ub=log10((Pxx)+We); plot(f,Ub(1:21)) title('frequency content') xlabel('frequency')
