Paper Abstract

Time-frequency distribution (TFD) is two-dimensional function that indicates the time-varying frequency content of one-dimensional signals. And The Wigner-Ville distribution (WVD) is an important and effective time-frequency analysis method. The WVD can efficiently show the characteristic of a mono-component signal. However, a major drawback is the extra cross-terms when multi-component signals are analyzed by WVD. In order to eliminating the cross-terms, we decompose signals into single frequency components – Intrinsic Mode Function (IMF) – by using the Empirical Mode decomposition (EMD) first, then use WVD to analyze each single IMF. In this paper, we define this new time-frequency distribution as EMD-WVD. And the experiment results show that the proposed time-frequency method can solve the cross-terms problem effectively and improve the accuracy of WVD time-frequency analysis.
