Find all peaks amplitude lies above 0 Using Scipy

• Last Updated : 26 Dec, 2020

Prerequisites: Mathplotlib, Scipy

In this article, we will see how to find all ‘x’ point above 0 with the help of find_peaks( ) function, that takes a 1-D array and finds all local maxima by a simple comparison of neighboring values.

Approach:

• Import required module.
• Find peaks inside a signal based on find_peaks() properties.
• Label the graph.
• Display Graph.

Step 1: Import all libraries.

Python3

 import matplotlib.pyplot as pltimport numpy as npfrom scipy.signal import find_peaksfrom scipy import signal

Step 2: electrocardiogram(): The returned signal is a 5-minute-long electrocardiogram (ECG), a medical recording of the heart’s electrical activity, sampled at 360 Hz.

Syntax:

scipy.signal.find_peaks(x, height=None)

Parameter:

• x: A signal with peaks.
• height:  Required height of peaks. Either a number, None,

Return:

peaks: Indices of peaks in x that satisfy all given conditions.
peak_heights:  If the height is given, the height of each peak is x.

Python3

 import matplotlib.pyplot as pltimport numpy as npfrom scipy.signal import find_peaksfrom scipy import signal  t = np.linspace(0, 1, 500, endpoint=False)sig = np.sin(2 * np.pi * t)x= signal.square(2 * np.pi * 30 * t, duty=(sig + 1)/2)peak, _ = find_peaks(x, height=0)

Below is the full Implementation:

Python3

 import matplotlib.pyplot as pltimport numpy as npfrom scipy.signal import find_peaksfrom scipy import signal  t = np.linspace(0, 1, 500, endpoint=False)sig = np.sin(2 * np.pi * t)x= signal.square(2 * np.pi * 30 * t, duty=(sig + 1)/2)peak, _ = find_peaks(x, height=0)  plt.plot(x)plt.title("Find peaks inside a signal - Geeksforgeeks")plt.plot(peak, x[peak], "x", color = 'r')plt.plot(np.zeros_like(x), "--", color="black")plt.show()
