intgration of a function*** help please***

actually this is not a homework, I found this explanation in a journal paper but I could not understand it. Can someone give me an explanation or possibly a proof that:


Homework Statement



if:
e;x}=\sqrt{2}\sum_{h=1}^{H}h\omega&space;V_{h}cos%28h\omega&space;t+\frac{\pi&space;}{2}%29.png


then why integration over whole period is:
t%29}{\mathrm{d}&space;t}&space;\right&space;%29^{2}dt=\omega&space;\sum_{h=1}^{H}h^{2}V_{h}^{2}.png



Homework Equations



I have problem with the power of omega, my solution returns w with power 2, while the power of omega in answer is one, Can someone help me for the reason?

Well, when you do a change of variable in the integral in the LHS, one omega pops up in the denominator, canceling one of the 2 from the numerator. That's why the RHS contains omega only to the power 1.

thank you, but as you see cos(hwt) contains both h and w. means by changing the variable the power of w and h should be equal. I'm confused:cry:

and over whole period:

then we will have
