Noise Measurement with Matlab

by admin in , , , on January 8, 2020

The present code is a Matlab function that provides:

  1. Plotting of:
    – the signal in the time domain;
    – the Power Spectral Density of the signal.
  2. Displaying of:
    – the average PSD before the A- or C- weighting;
    – the average PSD after A- or C- weighting;
    – the output noise (by TrueRMS Voltmeter) before A- or C- weighting;
    – the output noise (by TrueRMS Voltmeter) after A- or C- weighting.

Two examples are given in order to clarify the usage of the function. For convenience, the input and output arguments are given at the beginning of the function.

The code is based on the theory described in the references.
