csd
(x, y, fs=1.0, window='hann', nperseg=None, noverlap=None, nfft=None, detrend='constant', return_onesided=True, scaling='density', axis=1)[source]¶ Estimate the cross power spectral density, Pxy, using Welch’s method.
Parameters: x : array_like
Time series of measurement values
y : array_like
Time series of measurement values
fs : float, optional
Sampling frequency of the x and y time series. Defaults to 1.0.
window : str or tuple or array_like, optional
Desired window to use. See
get_window
for a list of windows and required parameters. If window is array_like it will be used directly as the window and its length must be nperseg. Defaults to a Hann window.nperseg : int, optional
Length of each segment. Defaults to None, but if window is str or tuple, is set to 256, and if window is array_like, is set to the length of the window.
noverlap: int, optional
Number of points to overlap between segments. If None,
noverlap = nperseg // 2
. Defaults to None.nfft : int, optional
Length of the FFT used, if a zero padded FFT is desired. If None, the FFT length is nperseg. Defaults to None.
detrend : str or function or False, optional
return_onesided : bool, optional
If True, return a onesided spectrum for real data. If False return a twosided spectrum. Note that for complex data, a twosided spectrum is always returned.
scaling : { ‘density’, ‘spectrum’ }, optional
Selects between computing the cross spectral density (‘density’) where Pxy has units of V**2/Hz and computing the cross spectrum (‘spectrum’) where Pxy has units of V**2, if x and y are measured in V and fs is measured in Hz. Defaults to ‘density’
axis : int, optional
Axis along which the CSD is computed for both inputs; the default is over the last axis (i.e.
axis=1
).Returns: f : ndarray
Array of sample frequencies.
Pxy : ndarray
Cross spectral density or cross power spectrum of x,y.

Notes
By convention, Pxy is computed with the conjugate FFT of X multiplied by the FFT of Y.
If the input series differ in length, the shorter series will be zeropadded to match.
An appropriate amount of overlap will depend on the choice of window and on your requirements. For the default ‘hann’ window an overlap of 50% is a reasonable trade off between accurately estimating the signal power, while not over counting any of the data. Narrower windows may require a larger overlap.
New in version 0.16.0.
