Problem 1
We have the two port network in figure 1, which is a cascade of two identical
networks consisting of a single shunt and series impedance. Find the Z and
Y representation of the entire circuit.

Problem 2
We have the circuit in figure 2, where we want to find the voltage over the
load impedance. Using an ABCD representation for the generator load,
transformer and the transmission line; find VL .
ZG = 50 Ω
Z0 = 50 Ω
βl = 90◦
VL ZL = 25 Ω
VG = 3 V

Problem 3
Express the S parameters for a series resistance R = 100 Ω. The setup for
setting a2 = 0 is shown in figure 3.
ZG = Z0
R = 100 Ω
ZL = Z0

100 Ω resistor.
Problem 4
Repeat the previous problem, with the finite transmission lines connected to
a series inductor ZL = j10 Ω as shown in figure 4.
Z0 = 50 Ω
βl = 45◦
ZL = j10 Ω
L = 1.59 nH
Z0 = 50 Ω
βl = 45◦

Problem 5
In the lab we measured on a short GCWP transmission line. The S parameters at 2.5 GHz where
0.00415 − 0.00331j
0.0949 − 0.933j
0.0294 − 0.964j
−0.0470 + 0.0182j
Using the fact that S11 = Γ, calculate the VSWR and the input impedance
of the device. Using S21 , calculate the insertion loss in dB.
Since the line is relativly well matched to 50 Ω, S21 = e−γl . Ignoring the low
loss, calculate βl as the (negative) phase of S21 . Can the length l be uniquely
You have designed our own nifty gadget and is convinced it will save the
world. Before proceeding to fabrication, you would like to asses the performance when using the GCWP transmission lines to connect to the outside
world. You have the S parameters of your gadget (Sg ), describe how you
would find the total S parameters as depicted in figure 5.

Mandatory for INF9481 students: Insert your own circuit and carry
out the required calculations. Note: it does not have to save the world, nor
do you have to do it by hand.
