 Synopsis:

The aim of the course is to acquaint students with the basics of signal processing, especially with time and frequency domain operations. Emphasis is placed on a thorough understanding of Fourier analysis. The second part of the course is focused on acquainting students with systems, their properties and description. Emphasis is placed on the external and internal description of linear dynamical systems.
 Requirements:

Integral calculus, Laplace, Fourier and Z transforms

 Study Objective:

Have the ability from the acquired knowledge to design digital filters required by LACH. Be able to analyze in the frequency domain different types of signals periodic, nonperiodic, repetitive, continuous and discrete. In the field of systems, be able to design the transmission of the controller in order to meet the required properties of the control process, such as accuracy, quality and stability for continuous and discrete control circuits.
