Sine/Sqr/Tri Wave Response of a 2 complex conjugate poles system, Resonance.

Cuthbert Nyack
The applet shows the discrete version of a second order resonant system.
Because of the rapid variation in amplitude near resonance, the output is normalised and its maximum numerical value is shown.

The complex conjugate poles are at r e±jq in the Z plane. Resonance occurs at frequency w/ ws = q. The Q of the resonance is determined by r, the position of the poles relative to the unit circle.

Different responses are obtained by changing Fn.
Fn = 0, Sinusoidal response.
Fn = 1, Square wave response.
Fn = 2, Rectangular Pulse response.
Fn = 3, Triangle Pulse response.
Sinusoidal Wave Response.
eg parameters(0.1, 1.0, 0.0, 0, 80, 0.99, 0.1, 700.0, 0.15, 0.08)
This shows resonance at high Q, maximum value = 45.28. If r > 1.0, the system is unstable.
Reducing r to 0.82 reduces the Q and brings the maximum value down to 5.0987.

This is the off resonance response, the output shows beating between the resonant frequency and the input frequency. DTFT spectrum shows 2 peaks.

eg parameters(0.01, 1.0, 0.0, 0,, 152, 0.98, 0.1, 700.0, 0.1, 0.08)
Low frequency response.

eg parameters(0.47, 1.0, 0.0, 0, 152, 0.96, 0.1, 700.0, 0.1, 0.08)
Response near ws/2.

eg parameters(0.499, 1.0, 0.0, 0, 152, 1.02, 0.1, 700.0, 0.1, 0.08)
Instability near ws/2.

The Square, Rectangle and Triangular pulses show responses similar to continuous 2 pole systems.
