PRlNCKPUi\:S OF COMMUl\UCA,TlON SYSTEM - 4[.SEM ECE MODULE 1: AMPLITUDE MODULATION Time domain representation of AM Amplitude Modulation may be defined as a process in which the amplitude of the carrier wave is varied to the instantaneous value (amplitude) ofthe modulating or base band signal. Let us consider a sinusoidal carrier wave CCt)given as : C(t) = Ac CDS Wet = Ac CDS 2nfet (1) Here Ac is the maximum amplitude of the carrier wave and Weis the carrier frequency. For simplicity here we have assumed that the phase of the carrier wave is zero in equation (1). Let M(t) denote the modulating or base band signal. Then according to amplitude modulation, the maximum amplitude Ac of the carrier will have to be made proportional M(t). to the instantaneous amplitude of the modulating signal The standard equation for amplitude modulated (AM) wave may be expressed as : Set) = Ac cos wet + KaM(t) Ac cos wet Or, Set) = Ac[l + KaM(t)] CDS Wet (2) •••••••••••••••••• (3) Figure 1 shows the modulating signal or base band signal, carrier signal and modulated signal.

However, if we want to know the frequency description or frequencies present in AM wave, we will have to find its spectrum or frequency-domain representation. For this purpose, first we have to take the Fourier transform of AM wave. Let Set) or S( co) denote the Fourier transform of set), C(t) or C(w) denotes the Fourier transform of c(t) M(t) or M(w) denoted the Fourier transform of met).

PIUNClPLES OF COMMUNICATION SYSTEM - 4\-SEM IEeE This means that the modulating signal does not have any frequency component outside the interval (-Wrn, Wrn). It may be noted at this point that in figure 1 (a) the modulating signal frequency ranges extend from -Wrn to Wrn i.e. it includes negative frequencies also from -Wrn to 0 . Practically there is no meaning of negative frequency. In fact, the negative frequency is used for mathematical convenience only. Hence we can say that the modulating signal contains frequencies simply the bandwidth of modulating signal is of a cosine signal cos wet Wrn . from 0 to consists of two impulse at n[,B(w+ we) +o{w- wd] We and - We as : Ccs ')..rr-tc.-t .•...............
