- scipy.signal.normalize(b, a)[source]#
Normalize numerator/denominator of a continuous-time transfer function.
If values of b are too close to 0, they are removed. In that case, a BadCoefficients warning is emitted.
- b: array_like
Numerator of the transfer function. Can be a 2-D array to normalize multiple transfer functions.
- a: array_like
Denominator of the transfer function. At most 1-D.
- num: array
The numerator of the normalized transfer function. At least a 1-D array. A 2-D array if the input num is a 2-D array.
- den: 1-D array
The denominator of the normalized transfer function.
Coefficients for both the numerator and denominator should be specified in descending exponent order (e.g.,
s^2 + 3s + 5would be represented as
[1, 3, 5]).
>>> from scipy.signal import normalize
Normalize the coefficients of the transfer function
(3*s^2 - 2*s + 5) / (2*s^2 + 3*s + 1):
>>> b = [3, -2, 5] >>> a = [2, 3, 1] >>> normalize(b, a) (array([ 1.5, -1. , 2.5]), array([1. , 1.5, 0.5]))
A warning is generated if, for example, the first coefficient of b is 0. In the following example, the result is as expected:
>>> import warnings >>> with warnings.catch_warnings(record=True) as w: ... num, den = normalize([0, 3, 6], [2, -5, 4])
>>> num array([1.5, 3. ]) >>> den array([ 1. , -2.5, 2. ])
>>> print(w.message) Badly conditioned filter coefficients (numerator): the results may be meaningless
