Trigonometric Fourier Series

We have already discussed the Fourier series in exponential form. In this article we will discuss another form of Fourier series i.e. Trigonometric Fourier series.

Fourier series representation in Trigonometric form

Fourier series in trigonometric form can be easily derived from its exponential form. The complex exponential Fourier series representation of a periodic signal x(t) with fundamental period To is given by Since sine and cosine can be expressed in exponential form. Thus by manipulating the exponential Fourier series, we can obtain its Trigonometric form.

The trigonometric Fourier series representation of a periodic signal x (t) with fundamental period T, is given by Where ak and bk are Fourier coefficients given by a0 is the dc component of the signal and is given by

Properties of Fourier series

1. If x(t) is an even function i.e. x(- t) = x(t), then bk = 0 and 2. If x(t) is an even function i.e. x(- t) = - x(t), then a0 = 0, ak = 0 and 3. If x(t) is half symmetric function i.e. x (t) = -x(t ± T0/2), then a0 = 0, ak = bk = 0 for k even, 4. Linearity 5. Time shifting 6. Time reversal 7. Multiplication 8. Conjugation 9. Differentiation 10. Integration 11. Periodic convolution

Relationship between coefficients of exponential form and coefficients of trigonometric form

When x (t) is real, then a, and b, are real, we have
