This topic will be helpful to classify real-time systems based on properties like Memory, dependence on present, past and future values of inputs, behavior of system wrt time etc. This type of classification helps us to design systems based on requirement.
System can be defined as meaningful connection of devices which produces required output(s) by processing input(s). System can be represented in many ways like Transfer Function, Impulse Response, State Variables, Differential equations etc.
In this lecture, some very important properties of system (s) are discussed. They are
- Time Invariance
Static and Dynamic System:
Based on property of memory, system can be classified as Static and Dynamic Systems. If the System for its functionality requires memory for its operation, it is known as dynamic system otherwise it is known as static system.
Invertible and Non-Invertible System:
To understand the concept of Invertibility, let us consider two systems: System-1 and System-2. Let x(t) and y(t) be the input and the output of system-1 respectively. The output of system-1 , y(t), is given as input to system-2 whose output is w(t). System-1 can be said to be invertible if output of system-2 ,w(t) is same as x(t). If there is no possibility of w(t) being x(t), then system-1 is a non-invertible Systems.
It is observed that when distinct inputs lead to distinct outputs, such a system is automatically a invertible system.
Causal and Non-Causal System:
A System is said to be causal, when the output of system does not depend upon the future values of the input but can use present and past values of input for its functionality. Otherwise the system is non-causal in nature. All practically used systems are causal in nature when input is in real time. Incase of recorded inputs which can be used in applications of image processing etc., non-causal systems are possible.
Stable and Unstable System:
A system is said to be BIBO stable, when it each and every bounded input given to the system leads to bounded output. Even for a single bounded input, if the output is unbounded, system is unstable.
Linear and Non-Linear System:
A system which satisfies superposition principle is said to be Linear system otherwise the system is non linear. Superposition principle has two subparts in it. (1) Homogeneity/Scaling property (2) Addtivity. A system which is linear, satisfies both parts of superposition principle.
Time Invariant and Time Variant System:
A System is said to be time invariant, when the characteristic or behavior of the system does not change with time which should be the case in many real time systems. When characteristic of system changes with time, it is known as time variant system. In order to test time invariance, the delayed input is given to the system and is expected that output of the system is also delayed by same value.
In this Subject of Signals and systems that we study for Undergraduate, we restrict ourselves to Linear and Time-Invariant (LTI) System
THE GATE Academy questions covered a wide variety of topics and were similar to GATE paper standard. The online platform replicated the actual GATE test environment and the detailed and video solutions were sufficient to clear all doubts regarding the question. Thanks to THE GATE Academy team to provide such wonderful tests & platform.
I took up mechanical coaching at THE GATE ACADEMY as there is no separate coaching for Engineering Sciences in India and Mechanical and Engineering sciences have more or less common topics.I feared that cracking GATE would be very difficult because I started my preparations very late but the counsellors and teachers guided me
I am Praveen. I got AIR 1 in Instrumentation stream. I want to dedicate this to my parents and to the Gate Academy faculty. Gate Academy coaching helped me tremendously to update myself continuously.I was very impressed with the way they taught each topic in different sessions with separate material for each session.
To begin with, it gives me immense pleasure to Thank,Thank the institute THE GATE ACADEMY for all their help and support.Its a place to learn, explore, grow and succeed.Well it helps you brush-up your engineering knowledge and learn new things and clears your concept in such great details
E Lectures helped me a lot in making a head start in the right direction. It helped whenever I got stuck in any topic. Mock Tests across 50 centers helped me judge my progress both on individual and comparative basis.
In one year’s time, I was able to prepare for GATE exam with the help of THE GATE ACADEMY and faculties. GATE Focused study materials and online mock tests helped me know my strengthen & weakness to prepare accordingly. I wish all the best to all GATE aspirants and suggest them to go through GATE coaching in case the basics are not clear.
GATE Success Story
