Discrepancy in frequency response of biquad filter (in Python)

I have written a simple biquad filter class but when I check its frequency response, I get different results with different methods. If I check it "empirically" (by taking the FFT of its ...

How accurate is the dominant poles approximation in higher order control systems?

From what I have learnt from control systems classes, the dominant poles of a system are those that can be used to analyze a higher order system in terms of the formulas of a 2nd order system. I took ...

Calculating tranfer function, poles, zeros and impulse response given input and outpul signals in matlab

I have been given an input and output signal. input: x(n)=(0.3^n)*u(n) + (5^n)*u(-n-1) output: y(n)=(3^n)*u(-n-1) - ((2^(n+2))/(3^n))*u(n). or x=(0.3.^n).*(n>=0) + (5.^n). *(n<=-1) --> in ...

How to estimate multidimensional linear response function from measured input and output signals?

Problem definition: I measure N sources of noise $x_i$ and one output signal $y$ which contains real signal $y_0$ plus noise from all these sources $x_i$ transformed by linear response functions $h_i$ ...

What does it mean for a transfer function to have multiple sets of zeros in the numerator?

I was looking at the source code for Matlab's tf2ss function and I noticed that it parses the numerator assuming that it is a matrix, not a vector. So I looked at ...

Transfer functions for Scipy and Matlab's Butterworth filter don't seem to match theory

The squared transfer function for a Butterworth filter of order $n$ should be $$|H(f)|^2 = \frac{1}{1+\left(\frac{f}{f_c}\right)^{2n}}$$ where $f_c$ is the cut-off frequency. (Here's one of many ...
