LINEAR TIME INVARIANT DISCRETE TIME SYSTEMS

1. Introduction

A discrete-time system is anything that takes a discrete-time signal as input and generates a discrete-time signal as output.1 The concept of a system is very general. It may be used to model the response of an audio equalizer . In electrical engineering, continuous-time signals are usually processed by electrical circuits described by differential equations.

For example, any circuit of resistors, capacitors and inductors can be analyzed using mesh analysis to yield a system of differential equations. The voltages and currents in the circuit may then be computed by solving the equations. The processing of discrete-time signals is performed by discrete-time systems. Similar to the continuous-time case, we may represent a discrete-time system either by a set of difference equations or by a block diagram of its implementation.

For example, consider the following difference equation. y(n) = y(n-1)+x(n)+x(n-1)+x(n-2) This equation represents a discrete-time system. It operates on the input signal x(n)x(n) to produce the output signal y(n).

2. BLOCK DIAGRAM REPRESENTATION

Block diagram representation of LTI systems with rational system function can be represented as constant-coefficient difference equation

The implementation of difference equations requires delayed values of the

– input

– output

– intermediate results

The requirement of delayed elements implies need for storage We also need means of

– multiplication

Represent system function using partial fraction expansion

3. CONVOLUTIO N SUM

The convolution sum provides a concise, mathematical way to express the output of an LTI system based on an arbitrary discrete-time input signal and the system's response. The convolution sum is expressed as LTI systems are causal if

h[n] = 0        n < 0

The z-transform of impulse response is called transfer or system function H(z).

Y(z)=X(z)H(z)

Choice of ROC determines causality.
