In this paper, the design of compensated generalized comb filter (GCF) is presented using maximally flat (MF) minimization technique. The proposed filter’s coefficients are obtained by MF technique. The proposed GCF compensation filter is the cascade of two second order compensation filter with GCF. Simulation result demonstrates that the passband droop of GCF is reduces to a large extent with the proposed filter.
