Fast Fourier Transform Approach for Signal Analysis

Authors(1) :-K. R. Chaudhari

Fourier analysis converts time domain signal into frequency domain signal and vice versa and fast Fourier transform (FFT) is a mathematical tool which convert discrete time domain signal into frequency domain signal. FFT are widely used for many applications such as mathematics, engineering and science. FFT have been described as the most important numerical algorithms of our life. This paper focused on FFT and described about FFT and its MATLAB implementation. The FFT spectrums for the outputs are analyzed.
