Instantaneous frequency (IF) estimation through the estimation of peak locations in the time-frequency plane is an important approach for signals contaminated with additive white Gaussian noise. In this paper, the forementioned analysis is carried out for continuous wavelet transform. The analysis of the scalogram as the instantaneous frequency estimator is performed for any FM signal regardless of the mother wavelet. Accurate expressions for the bias and the variance of the estimator are…
