A simple Laplace Transform is conducted while sending signals over any two-way communication medium (FM/AM

stereo, 2-way radio sets, cellular phones).


When information is sent over medium such as cellular phones, they are first converted into time-varying wave, and then
it is super-imposed on the medium.
In this way, the information propagates. Now, at the receiving end, to decipher the information being sent, medium
waves time functions are converted to frequency functions.
This is a simple real life application of Laplace Transform.
Laplace transform is crucial for the study of control systems, hence they are used for the analysis of HVAC (Heating,
Ventilation and Air Conditioning) control systems, which are used in all modern buildings and constructions.
Laplace transform has several applications in almost all Engineering disciplines.

1) System Modelling
Laplace transform is used to simplify calculations in system modelling, where large differential equations are used.

2) Analysis of Electrical Circuits


In electrical circuits, a Laplace transform is used for the analysis of linear time-invariant systems.

3) Analysis of Electronic Circuits

Laplace transform is widely used by Electronics engineers to quickly solve


differential equations occurring in the analysis of electronic circuits.

4) Digital Signal Processing

One cannot imagine solving DSP (Digital Signal processing) problems without
employing Laplace transform.

5) Nuclear Physics

In order to get the true form of radioactive decay, a Laplace transform is used. It
makes studying analytic part of Nuclear Physics possible.

6) Process Controls

Laplace transforms are critical for process controls. It helps analyze the
variables, which when altered, produces desired manipulations in the result. For
example, while study heat experiments, Laplace transform is used to find out to
what extent the given input can be altered by changing temperature, hence one
can alter temperature to get desired output for a while. This is an efficient and
easier way to control processes that are guided by differential equations.

PIERRE SIMON LAPLACE

The Laplace transform is a simple way of converting functions in one domain to


functions of another domain.

Here's an example :
Suppose we have a function of time, such as cos(w*t). With the Laplace
transform, we can convert this to a function of frequency, which is

cos(w*t) ----L{}-----> w / (s^2 + w^2)


This is useful for a very simple reason: it makes solving differential equations
much easier.
The development of the logarithm was considered the most important
development in studying astronomy. In much the same way, the Laplace
transform makes it much easier to solve differential equations.
Since the Laplace transform of a derivative becomes a multiple of the domain
variable, the Laplace transform turns a complicated n-th order differential
equation to a corresponding nth degree polynomial. Since polynomials are much
easier to solve, we would rather deal with them. This occurs all the time.
In brief, the Laplace transform is really just a shortcut for complex calculations. It
may seem troublesome, but it bypasses some of the most difficult mathematics.
Laplace transform is a technique mainly utilized in engineering purposes for
system modeling in which a large differential equation must be solved.
The Laplace transform can also be used to solve differential equations and is
used extensively in electrical engineering.
