Revealing and evaluating the influence of filters position in cascaded filter: application on the ECG de-noising performance disparity

Abdenour Allali, Arres Bartil, Lahcene Ziet, Amar Hebibi


In this paper, a new optimization on windowing technique based on finite impulse response (FIR) filters is proposed for revealing and evaluating the Influence of filters position in cascaded filter tested on the ECG signal de-noising. baseline wander (BLW), power line interference (PLI) and electromyography (EMG) noises are getting removed. The performance of the adopted method is evaluated on the PTB diagnostic database. Subsequently, the comparisons are based on signal to noise ratio (SNR) improvement and mean square error (MSE) minimization. Where the Rectangular, and Kaiser windows have been used for the more potent performances. The disparity average (DA) of SNR values is detected; in both Kaiser and Rectangular windows are assessed by ±0.38046dB and ±0.70278dB respectively, while the MSE values were constant. The excellent configuration or filters position (H-B-L) of the filtration system is selected according to high measurements of SNR and low MSE too, to de-noise the ECG signals. First of all, this applied approach has led to 31.30 dB SNR improvement with MSE minimization of 26. 43%. This means that there is a significant contribution to improving the field of filtration.
