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. The aim of matching is to make the equivalent impedance of the network the same as the desired resistance Rin – usually the characteristic impedance of a transmission line. Generally speaking, resistors are not employed for impedance matching since the power could be consumed by the resistor without making a useful contribution to the operation of the system.

17 as a broken line. To match the impedance, we can move this point (A) clockwise (towards the source) along this circle to points B1, B2, B3 or B4, which are the crossover points with the circle of z = 1 or 1/z = 1. It can then be further moved either along circle z = 1 or 1/z = 1 to the center O–the matching point. 9, respectively. 8. 18(b), where the open- or short-circuit stub is in series with the load impedance. The rotational angles (from A to B1, B2, B3 or B4) on the Smith Chart determine the stub lengths l1 and l2 .

For a lossless transmission line, elements R and G can be considered to be zero (R ≈ 0 and G ≈ 0). In this hypothetical case, the model depends only on elements L and C, which greatly simplifies the analysis. 18) This is just a real number (resistance) and is determined only by L and C; it is not a function of the frequency. 20) Neither the forward nor the reverse wave is attenuated and their amplitudes are not a function of the distance. 21) which is not a function of the frequency and is only determined by the transmission line itself–no dispersion.
