1
**Matching Techniques and Baluns**

INEL 5305 Dr. Sandra Cruz-Pol ECE, UPRM Ref. Balanis sect. 9.8, 14.8

2
**Matching Techniques Matching over the desired frequency range**

when connecting the T.L. to the antenna Types Stub-matching l/4 transformer: single or multiple Zo (real) ZL (complex)

3
Stub-matching Zo s l

4
**l/4 transformer-matching: Single Section**

First move so that ZL is completely real l/4 so Zo Zx

5
**l/4 transformer-matching: Multiple- Section- provides broader BW**

First move so that ZL is completely real Zo so l/4 Could be designed using Dolph-Tchevy or Taylor coefficients.

6
**Multiple sections: Quarter-wave Xmer**

N-sections Can be implemented several ways Binomial Tschebyscheff

7
**Multiple sections: Quarter-wave Xmer**

For symmetrical Xmer, Binomial Coefficients n=0,1,2,…N

8
**Binomial Design for Multiple sections Quarter-wave Xmer**

Fractional Bandwidth: where rm= maximum value of reflection coefficient which can be tolerated within the bandwidth. Use Radians!!! design

9
**Implementing with Microstrip**

For Microstrip lines:

10
**Tschebyscheff Design for Multiple sections Quarter-wave Xmer**

11
**Comparison of frequency response for matching quarter-wave network**

Binomial (Maximally flat) Tschebyscheff

12
Matching-techniques There are other techniques for matching a line to the antenna; T-Match Gamma Match Baluns

13
**Baluns BALance to UNbalance Converters**

a passive electronic device that converts between balanced and unbalanced electrical signals, such as between coaxial cable and dipole antenna. Present in some radars, transmitters, satellites, in every telephone network, and probably in most wireless network modem/routers used in homes. A 75- to 300 ohm balun:

14
**Baluns- current distribution**

leak Coaxial Line (unbalanced) Balanced load || wire transmission line (balanced) Coaxial Line (unbalanced) Balun Some antennas like the monopole or horn are unbalance loads, and it’s ok to use a coaxial cable to feed them.

15
Balanced source The source is balanced if the voltage potential of one level is equally above ground as the other is below ground at all instants of time. Example: +50V and -50V is balanced, +30V and +12V or +20V and 0V are NOT balanced.

16
**Some types of baluns Ferrite Core l/4 coax Bazooka l/2 coax**

(toroidal) l/4 coax Bazooka l/2 coax l/4 above looks like an open circuit, therefore the leak current is zero. l/4 above looks like an open circuit, therefore the leak current is zero. Shorted to coaxial outer conductor Shorted to coaxial outer conductor

17
Transforms Z, 4:1 or 1:4 Increased bandwidth but may not behave well at very hi frequencies. There are losses in iron core. Can be made 1:1 or impedance transforming such as 4:1

18
**Feed Networks for Arrays**

Series feed Parallel (Corporate) Space feed Usually one source feeds all elements in the array. Have to be careful not to affect the amplitude and phase of the feed to each element. Also the mutual impedance of neighboring elements.

19
Corporate Feed a) Tapered lines b) quarter-wave Xmers
