I am trying to understand how does the sliding window works when using the function
envelope in MATLAB to calculate RMS (root mean square). I'm using the following code to reproduce the behavior of
rng(1); Array = randn(1000,1); window = 100; limit = length(Array)-window; %Part 2 for i=1:limit RMS(i) = rms(Array(i:i+window-1)); end plot(RMS) hold
I expect the part 2 in the code above to generate the same results as:
upper = envelope(Array(1:limit), 100, 'rms'); plot(upper)
However the first option (blue line) is displaced about 50 samples compared to the second option (red line):
I would like to understand how
envelope determines the first samples.
