I plan to use Macleods algorithm in order to estimate the parameters (frequency, amplitude, and phase) of one or more sinusoids from a block of
N uniformly spaced samples.
Before applying the mentioned algorithm, I would like to know how to pre- or postprocess the captured signal. Can you recommend the following two actions in order to ensure that Macleods algorithm delivers best results?
- Capture more data points of the stationary signal to increase the resolution of the estimated parameters?
- Postprocess the captured signal with a (hanning) window before applying the algorithm
Thank you for your answers.
