1.1Trigonometric and Exponential Form of


Fourier Series
The Fourier Series

Joseph Fourier
1768 to 1830

Fourier studied the mathematical theory of heat


conduction. He established the partial differential
equation governing heat diffusion and solved it by
using infinite series of trigonometric functions.
The Fourier Series
Fourier proposed in 1807
A periodic waveform f(t) could be broken down into an
infinite series of simple sinusoids which, when added
together, would construct the exact form of the original
waveform.

Consider the periodic function

f (t )  f (t  nT ) ; n  1, 2,  3,


T = Period, the smallest value of T that satisfies the above
Equation.
Trigonometric Form of Fourier Series
The expression for a Fourier Series is
N N
f (t )  a0   an cos n0t   bn sin n 0t
n 1 n 1

a0 , an , and bn are real and are called 2


and  0 
Fourier Trigonometric Coefficients T
Or, alternative form
N
f (t )  C0   Cn cos( n0t  n )
n 1

C0  a0 and Cn are the Complex Coefficients

Fourier Series = a finite sum of harmonically related sinusoids


The Fourier Series
N
f (t )  C0   Cn cos( n0t  n )
n 1

C0 is the average (or DC) value of f(t)

For n = 1 the corresponding sinusoid C1 cos( 0t  1 )


is called the fundamental

For n = k the corresponding sinusoid Ck cos( k 0t   k )


is called the kth harmonic term
Similarly, 0 is call the fundamental frequency
k0 is called the kth harmonic frequency
The Fourier Series
Definition N 
A Fourier Series is an accurate representation of a
periodic signal and consists of the sum of sinusoids at
the fundamental and harmonic frequencies.

The waveform f(t) depends on the amplitude and phase


of every harmonic components, and we can generate any
non-sinusoidal waveform by an appropriate combination
of sinusoidal functions.
The Fourier Series
To be described by the Fourier Series the waveform f(t)
must satisfy the following mathematical properties:

1. f(t) is a single-value function except at possibly a


finite number of points.
t0 T
2. The integral t0
f (t ) dt   for any t0.

3. f(t) has a finite number of discontinuities within


the period T.
4. f(t) has a finite number of maxima and minima
within the period T.
In practice, f(t) = v(t) or i(t) so the above 4 conditions are
always satisfied.
The Fourier Series
Recall from calculus that sinusoids whose frequencies are
integer multiples of some fundamental frequency f0 = 1/T
form an orthogonal set of functions.
