Hi, I've FFT Voltage of a solar panel and get weird amplitude in frequency domain. I've read some previous questions about FFT and it seems like you have to normalize the magnitude of FFT to get better values. Thank you in advance, Here is my code:
time = X1(:,1);
Voltage = X1(:,2);
f1 = fft(X1(:,2));
DT = 0.1;
Fs = 1/DT; %sampling frequency
DF = Fs/size(X1,1);
freq = 0:DF:Fs/2;
f1 = f1(1:length(f1)/2+1); %frequency vector
figure(1);
plot(freq,abs(f1));
grid
ylim([0 360]);
ylabel(' Magnitude ');
xlabel('Frequency (Hz) ');
title('Fast Fourier Transform Without Snow And High Light Intensity');
figure(2);
plot(time,Voltage);
xlabel(' Time (s) ');
ylabel(' Voltage (V) ');
ylim([3.2 5.2]);
title(' Voltage Without Snow And High Light Intensity ');

Hi Sahaphol,
The csv file and your code are not working well together, and even if they were it appears that the time array is not in the file.
