### How can I plot the frequency response on a bode diagram with Fast Fourier Transform?

Assume that we have an unknow dynamical system and we only want to estimate its parameters. The system can be discribed as: Continous time: $$G(s) = \frac{3s + 5} {5s^2 + 3s + 2}$$ Discrete time ...

### Do Causal Discrete-time systems have proper transfer functions?

In the case of continuous-time systems, if the system is causal, its Laplace transfer function is strictly proper (the degree of the numerator is less than the degree of the denominator). Is this ...

### Are there alternatives to the bilinear transform?

When designing a digital filter based on an analog filter we usually use the bilinear transform. To approximate a discrete transfer function $D_a(z)$ from analog (continuous) transfer function $A(s)$ ...

### How poles are related to frequency response

I have recently fallen into fallacy, considering pole s=1 as there is infinite response at frequency 1. Yet, response was only 1. Now, can you derive the frequency response, given the poles? ...

### Convolution with an impulse response does not give the same result as the frequency response

Context I am trying to design a linear-phase FIR filter with the following frequency and phase responses: Designing the filter Given its characteristics (peak filter at 1kHz with 9dB gain and Q=7), ...

### Phase Response Function / Plotting in Excel (IIR Filter)

Using formula from Audio EQ Cookbook I implemented biquad IIR filters in Excel. I can now plot every transfer function and total of 8 band EQ with shelvings and peakings. My problem is, I can not ...

### Finding the impulse response between two microphones

I have made recordings of a single source (musical instrument) with multiple microphones and in the interest of limiting the size of the final project, I would like to find a way to get the impulse ...
