Homework Help: Plotting Power Spectrum Density in Matlab

  1. Sep 3, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I have an autocorrelation function given by
    R([itex]\tau[/itex]) = [itex]J_0[/itex](2[itex]\pi[/itex][itex]f_d[/itex][itex]\tau[/itex])

    I have already plotted it in Matlab using the following commands


    How do I plot its PSD in Matlab and the plotted picture looks like this:

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    When I use the command pwelch(R), it just won't yield the picture.

    I will obtain something different. How do I scale it so that I will resemble the picture given. thanks
