Z transform

Basics : 

What is the Z transform?
The Z transform has a real and imaginary part like Fourier transform. A plot of imaginary part versus the real part is called a Z plane or complex Z plane. Read more

Application of z transform : 
1.Pole-zero description of discrete-time system 2. Analysis of linear discrete signal 3. Use to analysis digital filter Read more 

Advantages: 1. Z transform is used for the digital signal
2. Discrete-time signals and linear time-invariant (LTI) systems can be completely characterized using Z transform
Disadvantages: 1. Z transform cannot apply in continuous signal Read more


Z transform ROC :

The ROC stands for the region of convergence of X(Z) is set for all the values of Z for which X(Z)  attains finite values. Every time when we find Z transform we must indicate its ROC. Read more
