Hi. I'm not an expert, but I believe the problem is with the edges of UnitStep.
I can never do these correctly in my head. Therefore, I let the program do it by
switching to the frequency domain, and then back...
equ = 2*UnitStep[t] - UnitStep[t - 1];
FullSimplify[FourierTransform[equ, t, w]]
(-Sqrt[Pi/2])*DiracDelta[w] + Sqrt[2*Pi]*DiracDelta[w] +
(2*I - I*Cos[w] + Sin[w])/(Sqrt[2*Pi]*w)
Then, invert it back...
FullSimplify[InverseFourierTransform[%, w, t]]
(1/2)*(1 + Sign[1 - t]) + Sign[t]
Now, you have a condition for t > 0.
h[t_]=Sin[t];
g[t_]=(1/2)*(1 + Sign[1 - t]) + Sign[t];
y[t_]=Integrate[h[t-s]g[s],{s,0,t}]//FullSimplify
ConditionalExpression[1+Cos[1-t]-2 Cos[t]-(-1+Cos[1-t]) HeavisideTheta[1-t], t > 0]
= = = = = = = = = = = =
Good Luck! :>)
