## How does Matlab calculate RMS?

y = rms( x ) returns the root-mean-square (RMS) level of the input, x . If x is a row or column vector, y is a real-valued scalar. For matrices, y contains the RMS levels computed along the first array dimension of x with size greater than 1.

**What is RMS in Matlab?**

rms computes the root-mean-square (RMS) of values supplied as a vector, matrix, or list of discrete values (scalars). If the input is a matrix, rms returns a row vector containing the RMS of each column.

**How do you use RMS block in Matlab?**

Root Mean Square (RMS) When you clear the Running RMS parameter in the block and specify a dimension, the block produces results identical to the MATLAB® rms function, when it is called as y = rms(u,D) . u is the data input. D is the dimension. y is the RMS value.

### How does Matlab calculate kurtosis?

k = kurtosis( X ) returns the sample kurtosis of X .

- If X is a vector, then kurtosis(X) returns a scalar value that is the kurtosis of the elements in X .
- If X is a matrix, then kurtosis(X) returns a row vector that contains the sample kurtosis of each column in X .

**How does Matlab calculate peak to peak?**

How to calculate peak in MATLAB

- I am using peak for the feature extraction as a statistical parameter Which formula is correct to get the peak.
- 1- Peak = (max (x) – min (x))
- 2- peak = 1/2 (max (x) – min(X))
- where x is the data that needs to be calculated.

**What is RMS value?**

The RMS value is the effective value of a varying voltage or current. It is the equivalent steady DC (constant) value which gives the same effect. For example, a lamp connected to a 6V RMS AC supply will shine with the same brightness when connected to a steady 6V DC supply.

#### How do you find the root mean square?

Square each value, add up the squares (which are all positive) and divide by the number of samples to find the average square or mean square. Then take the square root of that. This is the root mean square (rms) average value.

**Why is rms used instead of average?**

Attempts to find an average value of AC would directly provide you the answer zero… Hence, RMS values are used. They help to find the effective value of AC (voltage or current). This RMS is a mathematical quantity (used in many math fields) used to compare both alternating and direct currents (or voltage).

**What is a True RMS clamp meter?**

A true RMS meter works by taking the square of the instantaneous value of the input voltage or current, averaging this value over time, and then displaying the square root of this average. The important thing to remember is that a “true RMS” meter will give you better readings.

## How is spectral kurtosis calculated?

The spectral kurtosis, or K(f), of a signal x(t) can be computed based on the short-time Fourier transform (STFT) of the signal, S(t,f): S ( t , f ) = ∫ − ∞ + ∞ x ( t ) w ( t − τ ) e − 2 π f t d t , where w(t) is the window function used in STFT.

**How do you interpret kurtosis?**

If the kurtosis is greater than 3, then the dataset has heavier tails than a normal distribution (more in the tails). If the kurtosis is less than 3, then the dataset has lighter tails than a normal distribution (less in the tails).

**What do you mean by true RMS device?**

What is true-RMS? A true-RMS device (RMS = root mean square) is one of three tools that can measure alternating current (ac) or ac voltage: Only the first two tools are commonly used, and both can accurately measure standard (pure ac) sinusoidal waveforms.

### Where does RMS act in a Matlab function?

By default, rms acts along the first array dimension of X with size greater than 1. See Run MATLAB Functions on a GPU (Parallel Computing Toolbox) and GPU Support by Release (Parallel Computing Toolbox) for details on gpuArray objects. Example: cos (pi/4* (0:159))+randn (1,160) is a single-channel row-vector signal.

**How to calculate the RMS level of a matrix?**

For matrices, y contains the RMS levels computed along the first array dimension of x with size greater than 1. For example, if x is an N-by-M matrix with N > 1, then y is a 1-by-M row vector containing the RMS levels of the columns of x. example. y = rms(x,dim) computes the RMS level of x along the dimension dim.

**How is the RMS of an input signal calculated?**

The RMS block computes the true root mean square (RMS) value of the input signal. The true RMS value of the input signal is calculated over a running average window of one cycle of the specified fundamental frequency: where f(t) is the input signal and T is 1/(fundamental frequency).
