MessageDateFromSubject865 2007-06-20 15:49:44 Mike Brainard Clipped Sine Wave Info I wanted to look at how the power out of a clipper varied with the

applied signal level. This is not rocket science, but my search for a

canned solution came up dry. I ended up building a spreadsheet using

numeric integration to calculate the Fourier Series coefficients. I

have posted to the files area some results (for n=1, n=3, and n=5)

normalized to a clipping level of 1 volt. See "Clipped Sine Wave.XLS"

if you have interest.866 2007-06-20 17:13:41 Luiz Amaral Re: Clipped Sine Wave Info One detail: it is not necessary to integrate for calculating Fourier

coeffficients. There is a method based on jumps of the function where you

have only to sum finite things. Any good calculus book will show you.
