**Power Dividers and Directional Couplers**

Three-port networks General 3-port:

**For all ports matched, reciprocal, and lossless:**

Power Dividers and Directional Couplers (cont.) For all ports matched, reciprocal, and lossless: Not physically possible (There are three distinct values.) Lossless [S] is unitary These cannot all be satisfied. (If only one is nonzero, we cannot satisfy all three.) At least 2 of S13, S12, S23 must be zero. (If only one is zero (or none is zero), we cannot satisfy all three.)

**Power Dividers and Directional Couplers (cont.)**

Now consider a 3-port network that is non-reciprocal, all ports matched, and lossless: “Circulator” These equations will be satisfied if: (There are six distinct values.) Lossless 1 or Note that Sij Sji. 2

5
**Circulators Clockwise (LH) circulator**

1 Note: We have assumed here that the phases of all the S parameters are zero. 2 Circulators can be made using biased ferrite materials. Counter clockwise (RH) circulator

6
**Power Dividers T-Junction: lossless divider**

If we match at port 1, we cannot match at the other ports!

7
**Power Dividers (cont.) Assuming port 1 matched:**

We can design the splitter to control the powers into the two output lines.

8
Power Dividers (cont.) For each port we have:

9
Power Dividers (cont.) Also, we have

10
**Power Dividers (cont.) If port 1 is matched:**

The output ports are not isolated.

11
Power Dividers (cont.) Powers: Hence

12
**Power Dividers (cont.) Summary**

The input port is matched, but not the output ports. The output ports are not isolated.

13
Power Dividers (cont.) Example: Microstrip T-junction power divider

14
**Resistive Power Divider**

Same for Zin1 and Zin2 All ports are matched.

15
**Resistive Power Divider (cont.)**

By reciprocity and symmetry

16
**Resistive Power Divider (cont.)**

Hence we have All ports are matched, but 1/2 Pin is dissipated by resistors, and the output ports are not isolated.

17
**Even-Odd Mode Analysis**

(This is needed for analyzing the Wilkenson.) Obviously, Example: We want to solve for V. using even/odd mode analysis “even” problem “odd” problem

18
**Even-Odd Mode Analysis (cont.)**

“Even” problem

19
**Even-Odd Mode Analysis (cont.)**

“Odd” problem short circuit (SC) plane of symmetry

20
**Even-Odd Mode Analysis (cont.)**

“even” problem “odd” problem By superposition:

21
**Wilkenson Power Divider**

Equal-split (3 dB) power divider All ports matched (S11 = S22 = S33 = 0) Output ports are isolated (S23 = S32 = 0) Note: No power is lost in going from port 1 to ports 2 and 3. Obviously not unitary

22
**Wilkenson Power Divider (cont.)**

Example: Microstrip Wilkenson power divider

23
**Wilkenson Power Divider (cont.)**

Even and odd analysis is required to analyze structure when port 2 is excited. To determine Only even analysis is needed to analyze structure when port 1 is excited. To determine The other components can be found by using symmetry and reciprocity.

**Wilkenson Power Divider (cont.)**

Top view A microstrip realization is shown. Split structure along plane of symmetry (POS) Even voltage even about POS place OC along POS Odd voltage odd about POS place SC along POS

25
**Wilkenson Power Divider (cont.)**

How do you split a transmission line? (This is needed for the even case.) top view Voltage is the same for each half of line (V) Current is halved for each half of line (I/2) (magnetic wall) Z0 microstrip line For each half

26
**Wilkenson Power Divider (cont.)**

“Even” Problem Note: The 2Z0 resistor has been split into two Z0 resistors in series. Ports 2 and 3 are excited in phase.

27
**Wilkenson Power Divider (cont.)**

“Odd” problem Note: The 2Z0 resistor has been split into two Z0 resistors in series. Ports 2 and 3 are excited 180o out of phase.

28
**Wilkenson Power Divider (cont.)**

Even Problem Port 2 excitation Port 2

29
**Wilkenson Power Divider (cont.)**

Odd Problem Port 2 excitation Port 2

30
**Wilkenson Power Divider (cont.)**

We add the results from the even and odd cases together: Note: Since all ports have the same Z0, we ignore the normalizing factor Z0 in the S parameter definition. In summary,

31
**Wilkenson Power Divider (cont.)**

Port 1 excitation Port 1 When port 1 is excited, the response, by symmetry, is even. (Hence, the total fields are the same as the even fields.) Even Problem

32
**Wilkenson Power Divider (cont.)**

Even Problem Port 1 excitation Hence

33
**Wilkenson Power Divider (cont.)**

Even Problem Port 1 excitation Along g/4 wave transformer: (reciprocal)

34
**Wilkenson Power Divider (cont.)**

For the other components: By symmetry: By reciprocity:

35
**Wilkenson Power Divider (cont.)**

All three ports are matched, and the output ports are isolated.

36
**Wilkenson Power Divider (cont.)**

When a wave is incident from port 1, half of the total incident power gets transmitted to each output port (no loss of power). When a wave is incident from port 2 or port 3, half of the power gets transmitted to port 1 and half gets absorbed by the resistor, but nothing gets through to the other output port.
