ellip
(N, rp, rs, Wn, btype='low', analog=False, output='ba', fs=None)[source]¶ Elliptic (Cauer) digital and analog filter design.
Design an Nthorder digital or analog elliptic filter and return the filter coefficients.
 Parameters
 Nint
The order of the filter.
 rpfloat
The maximum ripple allowed below unity gain in the passband. Specified in decibels, as a positive number.
 rsfloat
The minimum attenuation required in the stop band. Specified in decibels, as a positive number.
 Wnarray_like
A scalar or length2 sequence giving the critical frequencies. For elliptic filters, this is the point in the transition band at which the gain first drops below rp.
For digital filters, Wn are in the same units as fs. By default, fs is 2 halfcycles/sample, so these are normalized from 0 to 1, where 1 is the Nyquist frequency. (Wn is thus in halfcycles / sample.)
For analog filters, Wn is an angular frequency (e.g., rad/s).
 btype{‘lowpass’, ‘highpass’, ‘bandpass’, ‘bandstop’}, optional
The type of filter. Default is ‘lowpass’.
 analogbool, optional
When True, return an analog filter, otherwise a digital filter is returned.
 output{‘ba’, ‘zpk’, ‘sos’}, optional
Type of output: numerator/denominator (‘ba’), polezero (‘zpk’), or secondorder sections (‘sos’). Default is ‘ba’ for backwards compatibility, but ‘sos’ should be used for generalpurpose filtering.
 fsfloat, optional
The sampling frequency of the digital system.
New in version 1.2.0.
 Returns
 b, andarray, ndarray
Numerator (b) and denominator (a) polynomials of the IIR filter. Only returned if
output='ba'
. z, p, kndarray, ndarray, float
Zeros, poles, and system gain of the IIR filter transfer function. Only returned if
output='zpk'
. sosndarray
Secondorder sections representation of the IIR filter. Only returned if
output=='sos'
.
Notes
Also known as Cauer or Zolotarev filters, the elliptical filter maximizes the rate of transition between the frequency response’s passband and stopband, at the expense of ripple in both, and increased ringing in the step response.
As rp approaches 0, the elliptical filter becomes a Chebyshev type II filter (
cheby2
). As rs approaches 0, it becomes a Chebyshev type I filter (cheby1
). As both approach 0, it becomes a Butterworth filter (butter
).The equiripple passband has N maxima or minima (for example, a 5thorder filter has 3 maxima and 2 minima). Consequently, the DC gain is unity for oddorder filters, or rp dB for evenorder filters.
The
'sos'
output parameter was added in 0.16.0.Examples
Design an analog filter and plot its frequency response, showing the critical points:
>>> from scipy import signal >>> import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
>>> b, a = signal.ellip(4, 5, 40, 100, 'low', analog=True) >>> w, h = signal.freqs(b, a) >>> plt.semilogx(w, 20 * np.log10(abs(h))) >>> plt.title('Elliptic filter frequency response (rp=5, rs=40)') >>> plt.xlabel('Frequency [radians / second]') >>> plt.ylabel('Amplitude [dB]') >>> plt.margins(0, 0.1) >>> plt.grid(which='both', axis='both') >>> plt.axvline(100, color='green') # cutoff frequency >>> plt.axhline(40, color='green') # rs >>> plt.axhline(5, color='green') # rp >>> plt.show()
Generate a signal made up of 10 Hz and 20 Hz, sampled at 1 kHz
>>> t = np.linspace(0, 1, 1000, False) # 1 second >>> sig = np.sin(2*np.pi*10*t) + np.sin(2*np.pi*20*t) >>> fig, (ax1, ax2) = plt.subplots(2, 1, sharex=True) >>> ax1.plot(t, sig) >>> ax1.set_title('10 Hz and 20 Hz sinusoids') >>> ax1.axis([0, 1, 2, 2])
Design a digital highpass filter at 17 Hz to remove the 10 Hz tone, and apply it to the signal. (It’s recommended to use secondorder sections format when filtering, to avoid numerical error with transfer function (
ba
) format):>>> sos = signal.ellip(8, 1, 100, 17, 'hp', fs=1000, output='sos') >>> filtered = signal.sosfilt(sos, sig) >>> ax2.plot(t, filtered) >>> ax2.set_title('After 17 Hz highpass filter') >>> ax2.axis([0, 1, 2, 2]) >>> ax2.set_xlabel('Time [seconds]') >>> plt.tight_layout() >>> plt.show()
