Asked by Lisa Justin on 13 Mar 2012

How can i scale for periodic signal using hann window. i know for flattop i.e 1/sum(window)but i do not know how to scale with hann window with a periodic signal. kindly help

Hi Lisa, it should be the same:

t = 0:0.001:1-0.001;
xn = cos(2*pi*100*t);
w = hanning(length(xn));
x = xn'.*w; 
sc = 1/sum(w);
xdft = fft(xn);
xdft = xdft(1:length(xn)/2+1);
y = sc*xdft;

sc is same as flattop you mean. no not true

the signal is periodic remember

It's not the same as the flat top window, because the sum of the two windows is not the same.

w = hanning(length(xn));
w1 = flattopwin(length(xn));

Accordingly the reciprocal of the sums is not the same.
