I’m having difficulty with executing IFFT and convolution
I want to see the output of a system with an input sine wave x(t) and transfer function H(f). In order to get the output y(t), I used IFFT with the transfer function to convert it from the frequency domain to the time domain. After which I convoluted both h(t) and x(t) to obtain y(t).
However when I plot y(t) I get a distorted signal. Could someone please instruct me as to what I did wrong? Your help would be highly appreciated
%Transfer function (multipathmodel)
f = 0:1*10^6:30*10^6; %frequency of multipathmodel
a = 0+(7.8*10^-10)*f.^1;
l = [200 225]; %length of wire
g = [0.55 0.45];
Vp = 150*10^6;
h = 0;
for i = 1:2
temp = (g(i)*exp(-a.*l(i))).*exp((-f.*j*2*pi)*l(i)/Vp);
h = h + temp;
end
%h is in the frequency domain
%Multipathmodel
d1 = 10*log(abs(h)); %H(f)/dB
d2 = ifft(h); %Impulse response
%sine wave
fo = 3*10^6; %frequency of the sinewave
Fs = 2^nextpow2((fo*10*2)+fo); %samplingrate
Ts = 1/Fs; %sampling time interval
E = 1/fo; %duration of sinewave (t)
t = 0:Ts:E; %xaxis
x = sin(2*pi*fo*t); %sinewave equation
%convolution of sine wave and transfer function
y = conv2(x,d2);
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
%plot transfer function

%plot the impulse response of the transfer function

%plot the convolution
t1 = (0:E/(length(y)-1):E);

This is what i'm expecting to get
Here is my input, x(t)
my transfer function H(f)
I converted the transfer function to the time domain by using ifft, this was the result
after which I convoluted both x(t) and the impulse response to get the output, then I used fft. The graph is supposed to be the same as the first graph above but i'm getting something different
