# Chebyshev’s IIR Filter using Bilinear Transformation Method

**Bilinear Transformation Method:**

- Poles are transformed by using equation,

Where, Ts is Sampling Time

- Mapping is one to one.
- Aliasing effect is not present.
- High pass Filter and band Reject Filter can be designed.
- Poles as well as zeros can be mapped.
- Frequency warping effect is present.

**Chebyshev Filter :**

Chebyshev filters are analog or digital filters having a steeper roll-off and more passband ripple (type I) or stopband ripple (type II) than Butterworth filters. Chebyshev filters have the property that they minimize the error between the idealized and the actual filter characteristic over the range of the filter, [citation needed] but with ripples in the passband. This type of filter is named after Pafnuty Chebyshev because its mathematical characteristics are derived from Chebyshev polynomials.

Using Chebyshev filter design, there are two subgroups,

- Type-1 Chebyshev filter: These filters are all pole filters. In the passband, these filters show equi-ripple behaviour and they have monotonic characteristics in the stopband.
- Type-2 Chebyshev filter: This Filter Contains zeros as well as poles.

**Design equations and Design steps:**

From the given specification of digital Filter, obtain equivalent analog filter as follows:

Here,

Ω= Frequency of analog Filter.

ω= Frequency of digital Filter.

T_{s}= Sampling Time.

**Step 1: **Frequency response:

The magnitude squared frequency response of Chebyshev filter is given by-

Here = Chebyshev polynomial of order M.

**Step 2: **Parameter ϵ

It represents ripple parameter in the passband. It is given by,

If A_{p} is not in dB then,

**Step 3:** Order of Filter:

At cut-off Frequency Ω_{c}=1, the magnitude is given by,

When magnitude is in dB then,

When specifications are not in dB then,

**Step 4: **Position of poles of Chebyshev filter:

First calculate regular position of poles using,

The position of poles of chebyshev filter lie at co-ordinates x_{k} and y_{k} given by,

Here r represents minor axis of ellipse and is given by,

and R represents major axis of ellipse and is given by,

Here the parameter is β given by,

Then the pole positions are denoted by,

**Step 5:** System Transfer Function:

The system Transfer Function of analog Filter is given by,

After simplification this equation can be written as,

Here b_{0}=constant term in the denominator.

Now the value of k is calculated as follows,

### MATLAB CODE:

Solution:

The Given Specifications are

Ap= 0.9 omega_p= 0.28 π

As= 0.24 omega_s= 0.5 π

clear all clc ap=0.8; as=0.2; p_d=0.2*pi; s_d=0.32*pi; t=1; pass_attenuation=-20*log10(ap); stop_attenuation=-20*log10(as); p_a=(2/t)*tan(p_d/2); s_a=(2/t)*tan(s_d/2); [n,cf]=cheb1ord(p_a,s_a,pass_attenuation,stop_attenuation,'s') [bn,an]=cheby1(n,pass_attenuation,1,'s') disp('normalised transfer function') hsn=tf(bn,an) [b,a]=cheby1(n,pass_attenuation,cf,'s') disp('unnormalised transfer function') hs=tf(b,a) [num,den]=bilinear(b,a,1/t) disp('digital transfer func') hz=tf(num,den,t) w=0:pi/16:pi disp('freq response') hw=freqz(num,den,w) disp('magnitude response') hw_mag=abs(hw) plot(w/pi,hw_mag,'k') grid title('mag response of chebyshew using bilinear') xlabel('normalized freq') ylabel('magnitude')

s^3 + 0.7489 s^2 + 1.03 s + 0.3333

**What is Frequency Warping?**

Because of the non-linear mapping, the amplitude response of digital IIR filter is expanded at lower frequencies and compressed at higher frequencies in comparison to the analog filter. This effect is called as frequency warping.

**What is aliasing effect?**

Aliasing is an effect that causes different signals to become indistinguishable (or aliases of one another) when sampled. It also refers to the distortion or artifacts that result when the signal reconstructed from samples is different from the original continuous signal.
