INTRODUCTION TO MATLAB
1. INTRODUCTION
The Matlab program is specially designed for matrix computations: solving
systems of linear equations, factoring matrices and so forth. It also has a built
in graphics package for visualization. Matlab is designed to solve problems
numerically, hence in most cases numerical values for the variables should
be deﬁned prior to being used in a Matlab function. However, Matlab also
has limited support for non-numerical or symbolic computations. A subset of
commands given in Maple V symbolic math package made available to the
Matlab core.
Matlab command window is ready to accept command line function argu-
ments when the >> prompt is displayed. Any command issued at the command
prompt would be executed immediately and the result displayed. If the com-
mandis followedby‘;’ the result is not displayed. Matlabcomes withextensive
this facility:
(1) help <function name> :- If the function name is known this command
returns a detail online help page for that function. For example, help plot
gives help on the plot command.
(2) doc :- Issuing this command at the Matlab command prompt will initialize
the html help database and open the web browser window.
(3) lookfor‘<regular expression>’:- This command will initiate a sub-
string search of all the Matlab functions and return the results. Note that the
regular expression should be enclosed in single quotes if the expression has
more than one word.

2. MATRICES IN MATLAB
The basic data type in Matlab is and n-dimensional array of double preci-
sion numbers. For example a one dimensional array represents a vector (e.g.
[1 2 3]), a two dimensional array represents a matrix and multi-dimensional
arrays represents a multi-dimensional matrix. A scalar is a 1 × 1 matrix, a
n-dimensional vector is a n ×1 matrix and so on.
Matrices are introduced into Matlab as a set of numbers enclosed in square
brackets (e.g. A=[1 2;3 4]) where the semi-colon ; marks the end of a row.
The matrix so entered will be displayed as shown below.
A =
1 2
3 4
Exercise 1 The transpose of a matrix is given by B = A’.
Exercise 2 The size of a matrix can be found by issuing the command
size(A). What is the number of rows and columns in A?
An example of a complex number in Matlab is a = 1+2i. Amatrix of complex
numbers can be written as A=[1+2i 3+i; 1+4i 5+i6] and will be displayed
as,
A =
1+2i 3+i
1+4i 5+6i
Exercise 3 Find the real part and the imaginary part of the complex number
matrix given above. Hint:– Use lookfor complex to ﬁnd the commands to
be use.
The variables inthe Matlabworkspace canbe viewedbyissuingthe command
who. These variable values can be cleared by issuing the command clear. A
speciﬁc variable can be cleared by issuing the command clear <variable
name>.
A regular Matlab expression is of the form variable=expression. The ex-
pression consists of other variables deﬁned previously. If previously undeﬁned
variables are used you will see the error message
??? Undefined function or variable ’<missing variable>’.
Variables in the expression should evaluate to numerical values or else they
should be deﬁned as symbolic variables. Symbolic variables can be deﬁned by
Introduction to Matlab 3
the sym <variable> command (see help on sym). Matlab variable names are
case sensitive. For example num is different from Num.
Matlab uses all the standard operators such as +, −, ∗ and so on. All Matlab
operations are sensitive to the size of the matrix and will return an error message
if there are any incompatibilities. Remember that a m×n matrix can only be
multiplied by a matrix of size n × p. The same argument holds for addition,
subtractions and divisions of matrices. For example a 2 × 4 matrix cannot be
added to a matrix of size 2 × 3. The only instance where the matrix sizes are
not an issue is when scalar operations (matrix of size 1 ×1) are involved.
Individual matrix and vector entries can be referenced with indices enclosed
in parentheses. The general form of the notation is A(row,column). For
example, A(2,1)=1+4i for the complex matrix given above. Note that the
index into a Matlab matrix cannot be zero or negative.
The colon symbol (:) is one of the most important operators in Matlab. It
can be used to,
(i) create vectors and matrices, eg. a = 1:6,
(ii) specify sub-matrices or vectors, eg. A(1:2,3:4) is a sub-matrix,
(iii) perform iterations, eg. for i = 1:4.
These will be discussed in detail later in this section. The period (‘.’) converts
an operator into an element wise operation. For example [1 2;3 4]*[1 2;3
4]=[7 10;15 22]however [1 2;3 4].*[1 2;3 4]=[1 4;9 16]. The pe-
riod operation has multiplied [1*1 2*2;3*3 4*4] rather than treating it as a
matrix multiplication. The same procedure applies to all other operators as
well.
The colon operator can also be used to extract sub-matrices in the follow-
ing manner. A(1:2,1)=[1+2i 1+4i]’. The general form of a sub-matrix
notation is
A(start_row_index:end_row_index,start_col_index:end_col_index)
Some special matrices that Matlab can generate are shown below.
ones(rows,columns) produces a matrix with all the elements being unity.
eye(n) produces a n-dimensional identity matrix.
zeros(rows,columns) produces a matrix with all the elements being zero.

3. PROGRAMMING IN MATLAB
A Matlab expression entered at the command line will get processed imme-
diately and the resulting output will be displayed. However, for complex or
longer sequences of program code we can use a Matlab script ﬁle. This is a
text ﬁle with the extension .m. A further improvement to this can be obtained
by writing the script with input output capabilities. Note that the newly created
m-ﬁles should be in your path.
function [output variables] = function_name(input variables)
% help text for the function
% comment or remark.
% ....
% .....
% End of help information
....
....
variables and expressions
...
..
The outputs and inputs are a set of comma separated variable values which
can be used to reference the computations within the function. The function
ﬁle should be saved in a ﬁle with the same name as the function name and
with extension .m. Matlab offers all the standard constructs, such as loops and
conditionals that are available in other programming languages.
% The IF statement
if expression1
statements containing previously defined Matlab variables
elseif <a logical or conditional expression>
statements containing previously defined Matlab variables
....
else
statements containing previously defined Matlab variables
end
% FOR loop
for n = Start:Step:End
statements containing previously defined Matlab variables
...
end
Introduction to Matlab 5
% WHILE loop
while <logical or conditional loop terminating criteria>
statements containing previously defined Matlab variables
...
end
Nestedconditionals are also allowed. The conditional or logical expressions use
relational (or logical) operators such as <, >, <=, >=, == (logical equal), =
(logical not-equal) in its construction. These are binary operators that return
values 0 (False) or 1 (True) for scalar arguments.
Exercise 5 Given two integers a and b, write a sequence of statements in
a Matlab script ﬁle to display T if a ≥ b and display F otherwise using the
IF-ELSE construct.
Exercise 6 Use the FOR-loop construct to ﬁnd the sum of integers from 1 to
10. Redo the exercise using the WHILE-loop construct.
Matlab also provides scalar functions like sin, cos, tan, asin, acos,
atan, exp, log, abs, sqrt and round. Some of the vector functions
available in Matlab are max, min, sort, sum, prod, any and all.
Example 1 Write a simple Matlab function to compare two matrices a and
b and return the matrix that has the smallest element.
To obtain the smallest element in a matrix we can use the Matlab min function.
Note that the problem does not state the matrix size. Hence the program has to
be written to accommodate unequal matrix sizes. The following code segment
should be saved in a Matlab ﬁle named compare.m.
function [s] = compare(a,b)
% Help for compare
% [s] = compare(a,b)
% s - Output variable
% a,b, input numbers
if (min(min(a)) < min(min(b)))
s = a;
else
s = b;
end
Exercise 7 Write a Matlab function to accept two vectors and return the
multiplication of the average values of the two vectors.

4. MATLAB PLOTTING COMMANDS
Matlab creates xy- polar- semilog- discrete- and bar graphs. The simplest
form of a graph is created using the plot command. Use the Matlab help
commands that will be used in this report are listed below.
Two dimensional graphs.
Elementary X-Y graphs.
plot - Linear plot.
loglog - Log-log scale plot.
semilogx - Semi-log scale plot.
semilogy - Semi-log scale plot.
plotyy - Graphs with y tick labels on the left and right.
Axis control.
axis - Control axis scaling and appearance.
grid - Grid lines.
hold - Hold current graph.
axes - Create axes in arbitrary positions.
subplot - Create axes in tiled positions.
Graph annotation.
title - Graph title.
xlabel - X-axis label.
ylabel - Y-axis label.
text - Text annotation.
gtext - Place text with mouse.
To plot a single set of data y vs t the command plot(x,y) can be used. Here
both y and x should have the same size. To plot multiple variables on the same
plot we can use the command plot(x1,y1,x2,y2,...,xn,yn). One plot
can be held on the graph window by issuing the command hold. Matlab has
predeﬁned line colors and lines types that can be used to differentiate different
plots. A subset of the possible values are given below.
Line Types Indicators Point Types Indicators Color Symbol
Solid - Point . Red r
Dash -- Plus + Green g
Dotted : Star * Blue b
Dashdot -. Circle o Cyan c
For example plot(x,y,’:’) would plot the graph with a dotted line. A new
ﬁgure window can be opened by issuing the command figure(<number>).
Introduction to Matlab 7
Text can be placed at any position on the plot using the gtext command.
For example gtext(’place’) would produce a cross-hair on the plot window
which can be used to place the text. Conversely you can use the ginput
command to transfer x-y value pairs from the plot window to the Matlab work
space. For example x=ginput(2) command will extract two points from the
plot and assign them to x.
Matlab selects axis limits based on the range of the plotted data. You can
also specify the limits manually using the axis command. Call axis with the
new limits deﬁned as a four-element vector,
axis([xmin, xmax, ymin, ymax])
Note that the minimum value should be less that the maximum value.
Exercise 8 Plot one cycle (2π) of a sine wave. Add axis labels and a title
and print.
5. OTHER RELEVANT COMMANDS
break This command may be used to terminate the execution of FOR and
WHILE loops. If the break command exists in the inner most part of a
nested loop, a break statement inside the inner loop will exit from that loop
only. The break command is useful in exiting a loop when an error condition
is detected.
disp This command displays a matrix or string without printing its name. For
example disp(x) will display the contents of the matrix without the ans=
comment.
formatcontrols the format of the Matlaboutput. For example format short
will round all Matlab numerical outputs to 5 signiﬁcant decimal digits.
pi represents the variable π.
diary saves a session into a disk, possibly for printing or inclusion of a
report at a later time. diary on will activate saving all the key strokes in
a ﬁle called diary in the current directory and the command diary off
terminated the writing process. Use any text editor to edit the contents in
diary.
Ctrl-C key sequence will terminate the execution of the current program. This
can be used as the emergency stop for unwanted operations.

1. DC ANALYSIS OF ELECTRIC CIRCUITS
In this section we will discuss DC analysis of an electric circuit via Matlab
matrix manipulations. The nodal voltages or the loop currents can be used to
obtain a set of linearly independent circuit equations which then can be solved
using matrix manipulations in Matlab.

Vo = V(1)-V(2)

The method of analysis will not change even if their are dependent sources in the
circuit. The circuit equations can be written by treating the dependent sources
as independent sources and later substituting the control parameter. Then the
ﬁnal set of equations can be formulated as a multiplication of matrices in the
general form[A][B] = [C] which could then be solved using Matlab. The same
procedure is applied to Mesh analysis as well. However in this case the matrix
equation will be of the form [R][I] = [V ] where [R] is the impedance matrix.
To ﬁnd the Thevenin equivalent circuit one has to write the circuit equations
as usual and then use Matlab to solve for the unknown variables. If the circuit
contains only dependent sources then a test voltage of 1V (or 1A current source
as the case maybe) should be applied across the terminals where the Thevenin
resistance is computed. If the circuit contains both dependent and independent
sources one can use the identity R

to compute the equivalent
resistance.

used in a design situation to obtain circuit parameters.

such

The following code segments achieves this task.

% R : Resistance at which Max. power is transferred.

2. TRANSIENT ANALYSIS
In this chapter we perform what is known as transient analysis of ﬁrst and
second order circuits via Matlab functions. The circuits we consider will have
12 MATLAB FOR ENGINEERS
one or two storage element which can be represented by a ﬁrst or second or-
der differential equation respectively. Our analysis will involve ﬁnding circuit
equations and plotting the time domain response of a circuit after a sudden
change in the network due to switches opening or closing. There are several
methods available for transient analysis via Matlab.
(1) If the equation of the transient is known, Matlab can be used to plot the
waveform. In order to do this a time vector can be deﬁned using [Start:
Step: Stop] and use matrix manipulations on the equation to ﬁnd the
values of the function at these time instances.
(2) If the equation is not known but the differential form is known together with
a set of initial conditions, Matlab can be used to obtain the time response
using the ode23 function.
(3) If the differential form is not known, replace the circuit elements with their
Laplace equivalents and obtain the transfer function at the output variable
of interest. This can then be used together with the impulse function in
Matlab to arrive at the output response.
(4) If the input waveform type is known (for example a step input) we can
obtain the transfer function from the input to the output which can then be
simulated via the lsim function in Matlab.
We will investigate the application of some of the methods available for transient
analysis using several examples in the sections that follow.
2.1. DIFFERENTIAL EQUATION REPRESENTATION
OF CIRCUITS
Ordinary differential equations (ODE) often involve a number of dependent
variables, as well as derivatives of order higher thanone. Touse the MatlabODE
solvers, you must rewrite such equations as an equivalent system of ﬁrst-order
differential equations. i.e. an equation of the form
dx(t)
dt
= f(t, x).
Any ODE can be written in the form
d
n
x(t)
dt
n
= f(t, x,
dx(t)
dt
, . . . ,
d
n−1
x(t)

).
Then the above equation can be written as a system of ﬁrst order equations by
making the substitutions

= x, x

=

The result is an equivalent system of n ﬁrst order ODE’s of the form

)
Once you represent the equation as a system of ﬁrst order ODE’s, you can code
it as a function that the MATLAB ODE solver can use. The function should be
of the form dxdt = odefunction(t,x). The following example illustrates
this procedure.
A ﬁrst-order transient circuit with one storage element can be represented
by a ﬁrst order differential equation of the form.
dx(t)
dt
+ax(t) = f(t)
The solution to such a equation is provided by the Matlab function ode23. The
differential deﬁnition function for this case is
function [dx] = odefunc(t,x)
% help instructions if necessary
dx = f(t)-ax;
Then one has to choose the initial conditions and the stop time for the sim-
ulation (for more information issue help ode23 at the command prompt) as
x=0 and time = [0 2]. The solver is called using the statement [t, vo] =
ode23(’odefunc’,[0 2],0); where vo is the output state.
This procedure can be extended to the second order transients as well. Con-
sider the second order ODE given by

If we assume y = [x

, we can write the Matlab differential deﬁnition
ﬁle used by ode23 as
function dy = diff1(t,y)
dy = zeros(2,1); % To ensure that dy is a column vector
dy(1) = y(2);
dy(2) = -a
*
y(2)-b
*
y(1)+f(t)
% Here f(t) has to be defined or should be deterministic.
Once calls the ODE solver ode32 in the same manner as in the ﬁrst order
ODE case. However in this case the initial conditions will have two values.
The values of dy that is returned from the differential deﬁnition should be a
column vector. Hence we use the zeros function in Matlab to ensure its correct
dimensions.
2.2. LAPLACE TRANSFORMMETHODS FOR
TRANSIENT ANALYSIS
The response of a system to initial conditions can also be found using the
Laplace transformrepresentation of the circuit. In some cases this is also known
as the network function of the circuit. For example if the input output equation
is represented by

Note that the coefﬁcients should be arranged in descending powers of s. The
procedure for simulating the transient response using the Laplace method is as
follows. The initial conditions are found after the circuit state changes when
the switch is closed. Then replace the circuit elements with their corresponding
Laplace equivalents and then obtain the transfer function as a rational polyno-
mial as shown above. One can use the function lsim in Matlab to simulate
the transient response. In what follows we provide several examples which
illustrate these modeling procedures.

2.3. TRANSIENT ANALYSIS EXAMPLES
The simplest form of analyzing a transient circuit is to deﬁne a time vector
via [Start: Step: Stop] and then compute the values of the transient
time domain equation explicitly via matrix manipulations.

use the lsim function in Matlab to explicitly compute the output state. For
example V

T = 0:1/size(U,2):1-1/size(U,2); % This is the corresponding time signal
% Make sure that the U and T vectors match in length
lsim(sys,U,T); % will simulate the output state.
Example 6 For the transient circuit shown in Fig. 2.5, the initial current
ﬂowing through the inductor is zero. At t = 0 the switch is moved from a to
b, where it remains for 1 second. After which it is moved from b to c where it
remains indeﬁnitely. Plot the current ﬂow through the inductor with respect to
time.

nition system

. Consider the RLC circuit given in Figure ??. The inductor is
the ignition coil which is magnetically coupled to the starter (the starter is not
shown in the ﬁgure). The internal resistance of the inductor coil (L = 200 mH)
is denoted by R and is given to be 4 Ω. Initially the battery e(t) = 12V is
connected to the series RLC circuit. To start the motor the battery is removed
via the switch at t = 0, thereby discharging the capacitor through the inductor.

The starter operation requires that the current through the inductor to be

Also show that this equation can be reduced to a second order differential

(2) Find The systems characteristic equation and determine the roots in terms
of R, L and C.
(3) When the switch is turned on at t = 0 design for the value of the capacitor
C such that the current i(t) reaches 1 A within 100 ms after switching and
remains above 1 A for a time between 1 and 1.5 s. Obtain the design values
manually and also via Matlab using the following methods.
(4) Verify using Matlab that the system is over damped by ﬁnding the damping
ratio and the natural frequency. (Hint : use roots or damp)
We have to take into account the physical status of the starter motor operation
and howit effects our analysis. Before the switch is closed the capacitor charges
up with a current in the clockwise direction in the circuit. However when the
switch is ﬂipped the current in the circuit is reversed when it discharges through
the starter coil. We need to account for this sign change in some manner. This
will be discussed as the we proceed. First we note that the equation of the
circuit after the switch is closed is

The roots of the denominator polynomial will determine the damping of the
system. Hence we carry out the design by changing the values of the capacitor
C until the system system damping ration ζ = 1. We use the following Matlab
program for this purpose.
function [p,z] = sysfind(Cl,Ch,step)
C = [Cl:step:Ch];

text(real(p),imag(p),num2str(C(i)))

plot(i,z,’+’)
text(i,z(1),num2str(C(i)))
end
We plot the roots of the characteristic equation and the damping factor for
Cl=0.1, Ch = 0.9 and step = 0.1. The corresponding output graphs are
given in Figure ??.
It can be seen that the Critically damped poles occur at s = −0.33, −0.33
and the corresponding capacitor value is C = 0.5F.
We now proceed to do the same computation manually in order to illustrate
the procedure. The characteristic polynomial for the givensystemcanbe written

From which we deduce

For critical damping ζ = 1 which implies C = 0.5F.
In this section we concentrate on the AC behavior of circuits in two stages.
First is when the circuit is driven by a sinusoidal signal source of constant
frequency and secondly when the circuit is driven by a variable frequency
source. For these analysis types we ignore the effect of initial conditions,
transients or natural responses which will eventually vanish at the steady state.
In this section we discuss the steady-state forced response of networks with
sinusoidal driving functions. In Matlab the angles are assumed to be in radians
unless otherwise mentioned. For example if we wish to plot the waveformgiven
by v(t) = 10 cos(ωt + 45

In steady state analysis, the circuit components are replaced by complex num-
bers. For example, the inductor of value L is represented by jLω where ω is
the frequency of operation. The real part and the complex part of a complex
number can be found using real() and imag() functions. The angle or the
argument of a complex number can be found using the function angle() and
the value returned is in radians. The steady state AC analysis is similar to the
DC analysis carried out in a previous sections using nodal and loop analysis
etc. In this case the matrices contain complex numbers as opposed to the real
numbers. The following example illustrates an analysis of a simple circuit with
e sinusoidal driving function.

Io = -i(3);

The problem can also be solved using Thevenin analysis by ﬁnding the open cir-
cuit voltage across the 1Ω resistor where the current I
o
is ﬂowing. The analysis
takes a similar path. For example if the source had a phase shift of the formV =

, it has to be converted to Cartesian form using the pol2cart(angle,
radius) function in Matlab. Remember that the angle should be in radians.
The typical function statement would be pol2cart(deg2rad(45),6) for the
conversion. All methods described in the DC analysis section is applicable for
the AC steady state analysis too.
4. VARIABLE FREQUENCY NETWORK
PERFORMANCE
In the previous section analysis was limited to a ﬁxed frequency at steady
state. In this section we will examine the performance of electrical networks
when excited from variable-frequency sources. In particular we will discuss
methods of obtaining Bode Plots via Matlab simulations. The ﬁrst step toward
simulating a frequency response of a system is to obtain the network function or
the transfer function of the circuit at hand. Since in electrical circuits the inputs
and outputs can be either currents or voltages there are several possibilities
for these transfer functions. The transfer function is obtained by substituting
s = jω where ω is the variable frequency and s the Laplace variable to arrive
at a ratio of two polynomials in s. For example, the transfer function G(s) for
the circuit given in Fig. ?? is given by,

the polynomials A and B. For example (s + 1) ×(s + 2) = s
2
+ 3s + 2 can
be easily found by the command conv([1 1],[1 2]) which will result in [1
3 2] which are the coefﬁcients of the polynomial with descending orders of s.
In the same manner a given polynomial can be factored to its roots by using the
command roots(). Using the same example above, roots([1 3 2]) will
result in tt -1, -2 indicating that the polynomial can be factored to (s + 1) and
(s +2). The partial fractions of a rational transfer function can be obtained via
the function residue.
Example 13 Draw the bode plot for the network function
H(jω) =

(jω + 1)(0.1jω + 1)
substituting s = jω and multiplying the factors in the denominator (conv([1
1],[0.1 1]) we obtain the numerator num = [1 0] and the denominator
den = [0.1 1.1 1.0]. The following matlab code generated the bode plot.
num = [1 0];
den = [0.1 1.1 1.0];
sys = tf(num,den);
bode(sys)
The bode plot is shown in Fig. ?? One can also use the function ltiview to
obtain most of the parameters from the frequency response once the sys =
tf(num,den); command is issued and the system is available in the matlab
workspace (read help ﬁle). Using bode with arguments will return the magni-
tude, phase and frequency information rather than provide an output plot. The
bode plot can also be drawn using semilogx command. The magnitude of a
complex number can be found by using the abs function which will give you
the absolute value of the argument.

values for the ﬁlter will be R = 100, L = 70mH and C = 100µF. The ﬁlter

In this program we supply a range for both L and C and the number of steps
to sweep these values. Then the two for loops will increment the component
values for n steps till the conditions of the if loop is satisﬁed. If it is satisﬁed
then the program loops are exited using the break function of Matlab. For
convenience we have converted the frequency to Hz in F.
The next step of the design is to check if the ﬁlter is operating as expected.
In order to do this we provide a signal which has two different frequencies
and look at the transient output for conﬁrmation. Hence to demonstrate the
effectiveness of the ﬁlter we choose the input voltage,
v

Which has a 60-Hz and 1-KHz signal added together. We use the following
Matlab program to simulate the system.
function [Vin,Vout,T] = testFilt(R,L,C,Tstart,Tstop,n)
step = (Tstop-Tstart)/n;
T = Tstart:step:Tstop;
T = T(:); % This command ensures that T is a vector

denominator = [1 1/(R
*
C) 1/(L
*
C)];
system = tf(numerator, denominator);
[Vout] = lsim(system,Vin,T);
Then we use the following code segment to plot the results given in Fig. ??.
[Vin,Vout,t] = testFilt(100,69.9e-3,1e-4,0,100e-3,10000);
subplot(2,1,1); plot(t,Vin)
axis([60e-3 100e-3 -1.5 1.5]); grid
subplot(2,1,2); plot(t,Vout)
axis([60e-3 100e-3 -1.5 1.5]); grid
It can be clearly seen that the 60-Hz frequency is attenuated to a very small
value by the notch ﬁlter.
5. FOURIER ANALYSIS
Fourier analysis is based on the fact that almost all periodic signals may be
expressed as the sum of sine and cosine terms that are harmonically related.
The usage of this important analysis technique is described below. Since the
response of a linear time invariant system to a single sinusoidal signal is easily
calculated, it is now equally easy, with the aid of super-position, to ﬁnd the
system response to a sum of sinusoidal inputs.
5.1. FUNDAMENTALS OF FOURIER ANALYSIS
A continuous-time signal is periodic if
f(t) = f(t ±T
0
) for all t
where the period is the smallest value of T
0
that satisﬁes this equation. The
Fourier series comes in two different forms, Trigonometric and the Exponential
Fourier series.

5.2. SPECTRUMOF A PERIODIC WAVEFORM
The frequency spectrum is the plot of the amplitudes of the harmonics versus
frequency. The phase spectrum is the plot of the phase of harmonics versus
the frequency. The expressions for the spectrum can be derived by equating
the expressions obtained for the exponential and trigonometric Fourier series.
Note that the spectrum comes in two forms. The one-sided spectrum derived
via the trigonometric Fourier series and the two-sided spectrum derived from

In general for real f(t) we have |c

odd symmetry. In some cases the Fourier coefﬁcients are substituted with
D
n

n
. From the above discussion it can be seen that if c

from (??) is
known the spectrum of the periodic signal can be drawn. The Matlab function
trapzcan be used to compute the integration in (??) to arrive at the coefﬁcients.
5.3. STEADY STATE NETWORK RESPONSE TO
PERIODIC INPUTS
The Fourier series can be used to analyze the steady state response of linear
systems to periodic inputs. Let us assume that a passive network has an impulse
response of h(t) andis fedwith a signal f(t) and the correspondingoutput signal
from the network to be g(t). Then using convolution,
g(t) = h(t) ∗ f(t)

. Hence it can be
clearly seen that the output is also periodic with period T

and the Fourier series
at the output is simply the Fourier coefﬁcients at the input multiplied by the
network function.

The complex number multiplications sometimes leave a small residue of imag-

the imaginary parts are ignored when plotting the function. In order to avoid
this replace F = sum(F); with F = real(sum(F));.

7. THE LAPLACE TRANSFORM
This section focus’s on obtaining Laplace transforms when the time domain
equation is given and the inverse Laplace transforms when the transfer function
is given. The ﬁrst method of analysis is using the Symbolic math Toolbox from
matlab. The variables that are used in symbolic math have to be deﬁned as
symbolic using the sym or syms command. The frequently used command of
the symbolic toolbox can be viewed by issuing the command help symbolic.
Example 18 If f(t) = e
−at
sinωt u(t −1), ﬁnd F(s).
The symbolic toolbox does not allow the u(t − 1) function to be simulated.
Hence we use f(t + 1) = e
−a(t+1)
sin ω(t + 1) u(t) instead and use the shift
theorem to get the ﬁnal answer.
sym a t w;
laplace((exp(-a*(t+1))*sin(w*(t+1)));
This will return the following
ans =
exp(-a)*((s+a)*sin(w)+w*cos(w))/((s+a)^2+w^2)
If its required to see this in a more convenient fashion
pretty(ans)
exp(-a) ((s + a) sin(w) + w cos(w))
-----------------------------------
2 2
(s + a) + w
Multiplying this answer by exp(-s) to accommodate the time
shift we arrive at the final answer.
Example 19 Find the inverse laplace transform of,
F(s) =
s
2
+ 4s + 5
(s + 1)(s + 4)
.
sym s
ilaplace((s^2+4*s+5)/(s^2+5*s+4))
The Dirac function is the delta function.
ans = Dirac(t)-5/3*exp(-4*t)+2/3*exp(-t)
The pretty function in Matlab can be used to see the answers little bit more
clearly. If one needs to simplify the equation or combine elements of a solution
given by matlab, you can use the simplify command.

8. CONVOLUTION INTEGRAL VIA MATLAB
The convolution of two data vectors can be carried out using the conv func-
tion in matlab.
Example 20 Plot the convolution of two rectangular pulses of 1s and 2s
duration with equal amplitudes.
This is the time vector for computations
t = 0:0.01:2;
A rectangular pulse can be simulated with rectpuls
f1 = rectpuls(t,2);
f2 = rectpuls(t,4);
p = conv(f1,f2);
A new time vector needs to be calculate with the same step
size as the original waveforms
tp = 0:0.01:0.01*(size(p,2)-1);

DC ANALYSIS OF ELECTRIC CIRCUITS

In this section we will discuss DC analysis of an electric circuit via Matlab matrix manipulations. The nodal voltages or the loop currents can be used to obtain a set of linearly independent circuit equations which then can be solved using matrix manipulations in Matlab.

Example 2 For the circuit shown in Fig. 2.1, obtain the voltage drop V o across the 4kΩ resistor.
v1 2kΩ 6V + − 4kΩ + Vo − 4kΩ 8kΩ v2 8kΩ 2mA

Figure 2.1.

The nodal equations for the above system can be written as, v1 − 6 v1 v1 − v 2 + + =0 2 4 4 v1 − v 2 v2 + −2 = 0 4 8 (2.1) (2.2)

These equations can be converted into [Y ][V ] = [I] format where V is a column vector [v1 v2 ]T . The following Matlab code segment can be used to compute numerical values for the column vector.

MATLAB FOR ENGINEERS

% This is the matlab code to solve for the nodal voltages. Y = [ 1 -1/4; -1/4 3/8]; I=[3 2]’; V = inv(Y)*I; Vo = V(1)-V(2) % This could also be computed by defining one variable as shown below. V = inv([1 -1/4;-1/4 3/8])*[3 2]’; The method of analysis will not change even if their are dependent sources in the circuit. The circuit equations can be written by treating the dependent sources as independent sources and later substituting the control parameter. Then the ﬁnal set of equations can be formulated as a multiplication of matrices in the general form [A][B] = [C] which could then be solved using Matlab. The same procedure is applied to Mesh analysis as well. However in this case the matrix equation will be of the form [R][I] = [V ] where [R] is the impedance matrix. To ﬁnd the Thevenin equivalent circuit one has to write the circuit equations as usual and then use Matlab to solve for the unknown variables. If the circuit contains only dependent sources then a test voltage of 1V (or 1A current source as the case maybe) should be applied across the terminals where the Thevenin resistance is computed.

In this section we will examine the performance of electrical networks when excited from variable-frequency sources. The ﬁrst step toward simulating a frequency response of a system is to obtain the network function or the transfer function of the circuit at hand. 4. Then the loop equations are.

Since in electrical circuits the inputs and outputs can be either currents or voltages there are several possibilities for these transfer functions. i = inv(Z)*V. conv(A.B) will give the convolution of .1. % The answer is given as Io = 2.
