2 Port Networks –Impedance/Admittance, Transmission, and Hybird Parameters

• Network parameters characterize linear circuits that have both input and output terminals, in terms of linear equations that describe the voltage and current relationships at those terminals. This model provides critical information for understanding the effects of connecting circuits, loads, and sources together at the input and output terminals of a two-port circuit. A similar model was used when dealing with one-port circuits.

• Review example: Thévenin and Norton Equivalent Circuits:

Show that Voc=8 V, Isc = 0.08 A, and Rth = 100

Now take away the source from the previous example:

• Why wouldn't it make sense to talk about a Thévenin or Norton equivalent circuit in this case?

• The Thévenin and Norton models must be extended to describe circuit behavior at two ports.

• Label the terminal voltage and currents as v1, i1, v2, and i2 and develop a mathematical relationship to show their dependencies.

If the circuit is linear, then a general linear relationship between the terminal voltages and currents can be expressed as:

• Geometrically each equation forms a planar surface over the v1-i1 plane, therefore, only three non-colinear points on the surface are necessary to uniquely determine a, b, c, d, V2, and I2. So if the circuit response is known for three different values of the v1-i1 pairs, six equations with six unknowns can be generated and solved.

• This problem can be simplified by strategically setting v1 and i1 to zero in order to isolate unknown parameters and simplify the resulting equations. In general, if no independent sources exist in the circuit, then V2and I2 will be 0. This will be the case for the problems considered in this unit.

Determine the inverse transmission parameter model for the given circuit.

Show that a =18/5, b= 100, c = 7/250 Siemens, d= 1.

• If all independent sources are deactivated, set i1 = 0 to find:

• If all independent sources are deactivated, set v1 = 0 to find:

If inverse transmission parameters are known, then the following circuit can be used as an equivalent circuit:

This circuit is helpful when implementing in SPICE withoutknowledge or details of circuit from which parameterswere derived.

By strategically selecting the constraints on port variables, the two-port parameters are the ratios of other port variables. Therefore:

• Port variables can be constrained by attaching a zero-valued voltage or current source. The other port can be excited by a unity-valued source (or some other convenient value).

• Place meters at remaining ports to obtain values for evaluating ratios.

• The two-port parameter can be found from values determined through SPICE.

Example: Determine the SPICE commands to find the abcd parameters for the circuit below.

1) Consider setting v1=0, then

2) Excite the circuit with i2=1 then

3) Use SPICE to compute v2 and i1 to solve for b andd.

4) Consider setting i1=0, then

5) Excite the circuit with v2=1, then

6) Use SPICE compute v1 and i2 to solve for a and c.

• Transmission parameters are related to the inverse transmission parameters by reversing the independent and dependent variables:

TransmissionParameters

Inverse TransmissionParameters

Impedance Parameters

Admittance Parameters

Hybrid (h)/Inverse Hybrid (g)-Parameter Model:

Hybrid Parameters

Inverse Hybrid Parameters

• Since a single set of network parameters characterize the linear circuits completely at the input and output terminals, it is possible to derive other network parameters from this set.

• Example: Consider the z and y parameter characterization of a given circuit with no independent sources:

• Show that:

• Example: Consider the abcd and h parameter characterization of a given circuit with no independent sources:

• Show that:

Terminal Currents and Voltages from Port Parameters:

• Once the port parameters are known, no other information from the circuit is required to determine the behavior of the currents and voltages at the terminals.

• Example: Given the z-parameter representation of a circuit, determine the resulting terminal voltages and currents when a practical source with internal resistance Rs and voltage Vs is connected to the input (terminal 1) and a load RL is connected to the output (terminal 2):

• Show that:

• Consider circuits A and B described by their abcd-parameters (assume independent sources zero).

• If A and B are connected in series, show that the abcd parameters for the new two-port (from v1a to v2b) is given by:

• Consider circuits A and B described by their y-parameters (assume independent sources zero).

• If A and B are connected in parallel, show that the y-parameters for the new two-port (from v1a to v2b) is given by:
