Coupled Line - Even and Odd Mode 3 4 1 2 input through coupled isolated A very common type of power divider used in Microwave circuits is the coupled line. In the structure the coupling between the ports is due to the interaction of the electromagnetic fields along transmission lines which have been placed in close proximity.

Even and Odd Mode Analysis One method of analyzing multi-port transmission line circuits such as coupled line is through even and odd mode analysis. In this case, the circuit input voltage is split into two, an even or symmetric mode and an odd or anti-symmetric mode. The total response of the circuit can then be described as the superposition of the two separate responses (Even and Odd). 2 1 : V V Mode Even = 2 1 : V V Mode Odd - =

Coupled Line - Even and Odd Mode C 11 and C 22 represent the capacitor to ground for one strip (without the presence of the other). C 12 is the capacitance between the two lines without any ground plane. If the strips are identical, then C 11 = C 22 .

Coupled Line – Even Mode In the even mode, a virtual open circuit occurs along the axis of symmetry, which removes the C 12 from the circuit. The resulting capacitance to the ground is the even mode capacitance C e = C 11 = C 22 . If the two strips are

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
