Set nondefault parameter values for feature extractor object

Since R2021b


    setExtractorParameters(sFE,featurename) sets the parameters used to extract featurename to their default values.


    setExtractorParameters(sFE,featurename,params) specifies the parameters used to extract featurename.

    Create a signalFrequencyFeatureExtractor object to extract the Welch power spectral density (PSD) estimate of a signal consisting of a 100 Hz sinusoid in additive N(0,1) white noise. The sample rate is 1 kHz and the signal has a duration of 5 seconds.

    fs = 1000;
    t = 0:1/fs:5-1/fs;
    x = cos(2*pi*100*t) + randn(size(t));
    sFE = signalFrequencyFeatureExtractor(SampleRate=fs,WelchPSD=true);

    For the PSD computation, set the OverlapLength to 25 samples and the FFTLength to 512 samples. Call the getExtractorParameters function on the object to view the PSD parameters.

    params = getExtractorParameters(sFE,"WelchPSD")
    params = struct with fields:
              FFTLength: 1024
        FrequencyVector: []
          OverlapLength: 25
                 Window: []

    Use the extract function to extract the Welch's PSD estimate of the signal. Plot the result.

    feature = extract(sFE,x);
    fvec = linspace(0,fs/2,length(feature));
    xlabel("Frequency (Hz)")
    ylabel("PSD (dB/Hz)")
