11.3 Inverse laplace transform

 Page 1 / 1
This module describes the inverse Laplace transform (based on Inverse Z-transform module by Benjamin Fite, notation changed).

Introduction

When using the Laplace-transform

$H(s)=\sum_{t=()}$ h t s t
it is often useful to be able to find $h(t)$ given $H(s)$ . There are at least 4 different methods to do this:
1. Inspection
2. Partial-Fraction Expansion
3. Power Series Expansion
4. Contour Integration

Inspection method

This "method" is to basically become familiar with the Laplace-transform pair tables and then "reverse engineer".

When given $H(s)=\frac{s}{s-\alpha }$ with an ROC of $\left|s\right|> \alpha$ we could determine "by inspection" that $h(t)=\alpha ^{t}u(t)$

Partial-fraction expansion method

When dealing with linear time-invariant systems the z-transform is often of the form

$H(s)=\frac{B(s)}{A(s)}=\frac{\sum_{k=0}^{M} {b}_{k}s^{-k}}{\sum_{k=0}^{N} {a}_{k}s^{-k}}$
This can also expressed as
$H(s)=\frac{{a}_{0}}{{b}_{0}}\frac{\prod_{k=1}^{M} 1-{c}_{k}s^{(-1)}}{\prod_{k=1}^{N} 1-{d}_{k}s^{(-1)}}$
where ${c}_{k}$ represents the nonzero zeros of $H(s)$ and ${d}_{k}$ represents the nonzero poles.

If $M< N$ then $H(s)$ can be represented as

$H(s)=\sum_{k=1}^{N} \frac{{A}_{k}}{1-{d}_{k}s^{(-1)}}$
This form allows for easy inversions of each term of the sum using the inspection method and the transform table . If the numerator is a polynomial, however, then it becomes necessary to use partial-fraction expansion to put $H(s)$ in the above form. If $M\ge N$ then $H(s)$ can be expressed as
$H(s)=\sum_{r=0}^{M-N} {B}_{r}s^{-r}+\frac{\sum_{k=0}^{N-1} {b}_{k}^{\text{'}}s^{-k}}{\sum_{k=0}^{N} {a}_{k}s^{-k}}$

Find the inverse z-transform of $H(s)=\frac{1+2s^{(-1)}+s^{-2}}{1-3s^{(-1)}+2s^{-2}}$ where the ROC is $\left|s\right|> 2$ . In this case $M=N=2$ , so we have to use long division to get $H(s)=\frac{1}{2}+\frac{\frac{1}{2}+\frac{7}{2}s^{(-1)}}{1-3s^{(-1)}+2s^{-2}}$ Next factor the denominator. $H(s)=2+\frac{-1+5s^{(-1)}}{(1-2s^{(-1)})(1-s^{(-1)})}$ Now do partial-fraction expansion. $H(s)=\frac{1}{2}+\frac{{A}_{1}}{1-2s^{(-1)}}+\frac{{A}_{2}}{1-s^{(-1)}}=\frac{1}{2}+\frac{\frac{9}{2}}{1-2s^{(-1)}}+\frac{-4}{1-s^{(-1)}}$ Now each term can be inverted using the inspection method and the Laplace-transform table. Thus, since the ROC is $\left|s\right|> 2$ , $h(t)=\frac{1}{2}\delta (t)+\frac{9}{2}2^{t}u(t)-4u(t)$

Power series expansion method

When the z-transform is defined as a power series in the form

$H(s)=\sum_{t=()}$ h t s t
then each term of the sequence $h(t)$ can be determined by looking at the coefficients of the respective power of $s^{-t}$ .

Now look at the Laplace-transform of a finite-length sequence .

$H(s)=s^{2}(1+2s^{(-1)})(1-\frac{1}{2}s^{(-1)})(1+s^{(-1)})=s^{2}+\frac{5}{2}s+\frac{1}{2}+-s^{(-1)}$
In this case, since there were no poles, we multiplied thefactors of $H(s)$ . Now, by inspection, it is clear that $h(t)=\delta (t+2)+\frac{5}{2}\delta (t+1)+\frac{1}{2}\delta (t)+-\delta (t-1)$ .

One of the advantages of the power series expansion method is that many functions encountered in engineering problems havetheir power series' tabulated. Thus functions such as log, sin, exponent, sinh, etc, can be easily inverted.

Suppose $H(s)=\log_{t}(1+\alpha s^{(-1)})$ Noting that $\log_{t}(1+x)=\sum_{t=1}$ -1 t 1 x t t Then $H(s)=\sum_{t=1}$ -1 t 1 α t s t t Therefore $H(s)=\begin{cases}\frac{-1^{(t+1)}\alpha ^{t}}{t} & \text{if t\ge 1}\\ 0 & \text{if t\le 0}\end{cases}()$

Contour integration method

Without going in to much detail

$h(t)=\frac{1}{2\pi i}(s, , H(s)s^{(t-1)})$
where $r$ is a counter-clockwise contour in the ROC of $H(s)$ encircling the origin of the s-plane. To further expand on this method of finding the inverse requires the knowledge ofcomplex variable theory and thus will not be addressed in this module.

Conclusion

The Inverse Laplace-transform is very useful to know for the purposes of designing a filter, and there are many ways in which to calculate it, drawing from many disparate areas of mathematics. All nevertheless assist the user in reaching the desired time-domain signal that can then be synthesized in hardware(or software) for implementation in a real-world filter.

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
20/(×-6^2)
Salomon
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
Salomon
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
Salomon
I got X =-6
Salomon
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?

algebra 2 Inequalities:If equation 2 = 0 it is an open set?
or infinite solutions?
Kim
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
how did you get the value of 2000N.What calculations are needed to arrive at it
