I have a question for my HNC can anyone help the question is illustrate a complex waveform containing even and one containing odd harmonics, detailing ehich orders are prescent ?????:
So what's the problem? A complex waveform is the sum of two or more simple waveforms. The waveforms we are talking about are sine waves. Lookup the definition of harmonic and you're home free.
You may want to review the material in the Mixed AC waveforms tutorial in the e-book section of the AllAboutCircuits website. hgmjr
What a coincidence; I was just going to post a question on Fourier, but I found this thread, so I put it here instead: I just want/need to know the very basics. Am I right with the following: Symmetrical 50 Hz square wave. w = angular velocity = 2pif = 314 radians. E = peak voltage of square wave. Fundamental peak voltage = (4E / pi)sin(wt) 3rd harmonic peak voltage = (4E / 3pi)sin(3wt) 5th harmonic peak voltage = (4E / 5pi)sin(5wt) so on.... The sum would be 4E / pi(sinwt + 1/3sin3wt + 1/5sinwt....) My math is piss poor, so I intend to K.I.S.S. Steve
The link I provided in my earlier reply in this thread provides the exact problem in it. You may want to compare your answer to the one they obtained. hgmjr
Are you looking for something along the line of the attachment. Showing even (real) and odd (imaginary) components at the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th haramonics. I apologies for the sketchy drawing, I've just drawn it with my mouse! Dave
