5. It is worth noting the following special cases for a lossless transmission line: r Matched case: Z L = Z 0 (l) = 0 = 0 – the reflection is zero at any point of the line (even for a non-perfect transmission line). L RT = ∞ dB – in practice, this means that the return loss is huge, say 50 dB. 37 Circuit Concepts and Transmission Lines r Open circuit: Z L = ∞ − j2βl – the amplitude of the reflection coefficient is 1 at any point of the 0 = 1 and (l) = e line. L RT = 0 dB – this means that all power is reflected back from the load.
The short- and opencircuit stub tuning is very similar to the lumped matching circuit tuning: reactance and/or admittance is added to the matching network. The example below is a good illustration of how to realize matching using a distributed network. 9: Impedance matching and bandwidth. A load with an impedance of 10 − j100 is to be matched with a 50 transmission line. Design two distributed matching networks and compare them in terms of the bandwidth performance. 17, this corresponds to a unique point A on the Smith Chart.
After 360 degrees (half wavelength), it is back to A. e. −20 and +20 . 1. 2 Impedance Matching Impedance matching is the practice of making the output impedance of a source equal to the input impedance of the load in order to maximize the power transfer and minimize reflections from the load. Mathematically, it means the load impedance being the complex conjugate of the source impedance. 44) Normally, we can use either lumped networks or distributed networks to match impedance. 1 Lumped Matching Networks Lumped matching networks can be divided into three basic types: the L network, the T network and the pi (π) network.
