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.

The period is half of a wavelength. r The input impedance is a complex number even when the load impedance is a pure resistance. The resistance changes between 75 and 33 , whilst the reactance changes between −20 and +20 . r There are two resonant points (where the reactance is zero) over one period. 25 in this case. e. capacitive. e. inductive. 2: Input impedance of a low-loss transmission line. A 75 resistor is now connected to a good transmission line with characteristic impedance of 50 . 2 Np/m at 1 GHz.

For a nonperfect transmission line, the VSWR is a function of the length of the line (l) as well as the load impedance and the characteristic impedance of the line. But for a lossless transmission line, the VSWR is the same at any reference point of the line. 42) This can be used to calculate the reflection coefficient once the VSWR is known. 9 zmax Standing waves of the voltage and current on a transmission line 40 Antennas: From Theory to Practice Thus, the VSWR of a line is bounded by unity and infinity: 1 ≤ VSWR ≤ ∞ For most applications, the VSWR is required to be smaller than 2, which is considered a good match.
