. Analyse and design discrete systems, mathematically express them using a number of suitable approaches, critically analyse their frequency response and transfer function properties and use z-transform techniques to investigate stability. ii. Make critical judgement about the operational parameters and potential of adaptive discrete systems for solving engineering problems iii. Make critical judgement about the operational parameters and potential applications of adaptive discrete systems for solving engineering problems. iv. Design and apply digital filter by critically considering the characteristics of the desired signal and the noise
The report should have the following format and structure and features.
Presentation: Ensure your report is scientifically presented (figures, grammar, English format
etc. Ensure you have properly and adequately referenced your work. Use the SHU suggested
style of referencing throughout.
Aims and Objectives: A brief (few lines) indicating of what was the purpose of the study. What
Introduction: This outlines the background to the investigation. The introduction needs to
cover a brief theory of the related topics used in the study. You would have to do a literature
search to obtain more information when writing this part. Use the university recommended
referencing APA style. Ensure your report is properly and adequately referenced.
Methodology: This is partially contained within your assignment sheet. You may refer directly
to the part in the assignment sheet. However you need to augment these and describe the
tasks you did in a more detail. You may wish to elaborate of some of the tasks you performed
to obtain you results.
Results: This may include tables of readings, waveforms, graphs, figures and observations etc.
These need to be clearly and carefully presented. Always plot your results as it is easier to look
at a diagram than a list of numbers. Make sure your graphs are scientifically labelled (do not
forget labels for axes).
Critical discussion of results: You need to explain your findings and observations critically. Do
they conform to theory?. If there are discrepancies, determine by how much and explain the
cause. To explain some of your findings you may have to do further readings.
Conclusions: You need to summarise your findings in a reflective manner and explain what you
understood by doing the work.
References: Ensure your report is correctly and adequately referenced using the University
Appendices: Results and analysis that do not fit well in the main body of the report can go in
the appendices. Appendices could include your Matlab© code
