Abstract
This paper compared noise removal using the Fourier series and the Haar wavelet transformations. The results showed that noise from the measured data can be filtered by neglecting high-order terms of Fourier coefficients. It also showed that signal denoising can be achieved by Haar wavelet transformation by filtering the noise before inverting the transformed data back to time domain. A further comparison using a set of data with variation 6.3mV from five measurements of a sample showed that the variations after denoising can be reduced to 3.8mV by the Fourier series and to 2.3mV by 3-level Haar wavelet. Both methods can filter noise in signal and keep the predicted curve consistent with the measured data. The signal becomes smooth if denoised by the Fourier series but the variation of signal, however, can be reduced more if denoised by the Haar wavelet. Moreover, from the computation complexity viewpoint, signal denoising by Haar wavelet is much better than that by Fourier series.
