Unformatted text preview: 34 Line impedance, generalized reflection coef ficient, Smith Chart Consider a TL of an arbitrary length l terminated by an arbitrary load Z L = R L + jX L . as depicted in the margin. l Input port Z o l z l d LOAD GENERATOR, Circuit Z L = R L + jX I ( d ) V ( d ) + Voltage and current phasors are known to vary on the line as V ( d ) = V + e jd + V e jd and I ( d ) = V + e jd V e jd Z o . In this lecture we will develop the general analysis tools needed to determine the unknowns of these phasors, namely V + and V , in terms of source circuit specifications. Our analysis starts at the load end of the TL where V (0) and I (0) stand for the load voltage and current, obeying Ohms law V (0) = Z L I (0) . Hence, using V (0) and I (0) from above, we have V + + V = Z L V + V Z o V = Z L Z o Z L + Z o V + . 1 Define a load reflection coefficient Load reflection coefficient is a well justified name for L since the forward travel ing wave with phasor V + e jd gets reflected from the load. L Z L Z o Z L + Z o and rewrite the voltage and current phasors as V ( d ) = V + e jd [1+ L e j 2 d ] and I ( d ) = V + e jd [1 L e j 2 d ] Z o . Define a generalized reflection coefficient The term generalized reflec tion coefficient is also well justified even if there is no reflection taking place at ar bitrary d the reason is, if the line were cut at location d and the stub with the load were replaced by a lumped load having a reflection co efficient equal to ( d ) , then there would be no modifica tion of the voltage and cur rent variations on the line to wards the generator.
