ECE NUS EE4101 Smith Chart / 3 The Smith Chart The Smith Chart For the loaded transmission line the relationship between the complex valued Г and the complex valued normalized load impedance z L is given by a bilinear transformation: This transformation can be visualized in the form known as the Smith Chart . The particular interest is in visualizing constant reflection coefficient, constant resistance and constant reactance. 1 1 + - = Γ = Γ Γ L L j z z e Γ - Γ + = 1 1 L z or

ECE NUS EE4101 Smith Chart / 4 The Smith Chart The Smith Chart It is worthwhile knowing that the bilinear transformations transform circles into circles. This means that the constant resistance and constant reactance lines in the Z plane appear as circles in the complex Γ plane . 1 1 + + - + = Γ + Γ = Γ = Γ Γ jx r jx r j e i r j i r i r L L j j jx r z Γ - Γ - Γ + Γ + = Γ - Γ + = + = 1 1 1 1 2 2 2 2 2 1 1 i r r i r r Γ + Γ - Γ + Γ - Γ - = 2 2 2 1 2 i r r i x Γ + Γ - Γ + Γ = To demonstrate that, we consider each of the following equations (neglecting the other one makes x or r arbitrary):
