The Fourier Series

OBJECTIVES

In this chapter you will learn about:

  • Synthesis of non-sinusoidal waveforms by combining a number of sine waves and cosine waves
  • Fourier series and its ability to express finite, continuous and single-valued functions in terms of sine and cosine series
  • Harmonic content of the Fourier expressions, which represent a number of non-sinusoidal waveforms
  • Calculating the effective value of a non-sinusoidal waveform
  • The expression for the non-sinusoidal current in a series a.c. circuit
  • Determining the expression for the total non-sinusoidal current in a series-parallel a.c. circuit
