Teaching Graphical Simulations of Fourier Series Expansion of Some Periodic Waves Using Spreadsheets
Singh, Iqbal; Kaur, Bikramjeet
Physics Education, v53 n3 Article 035031 May 2018
The present article demonstrates a way of programming using an Excel spreadsheet to teach Fourier series expansion in school/colleges without the knowledge of any typical programming language. By using this, a student learns to approximate partial sum of the n terms of Fourier series for some periodic signals such as square wave, saw tooth wave, half wave rectifier and full wave rectifier signals.
