Impedance matching
• What is impedance matching?
• Any signal source has an associated source impedance.
• Any “load” circuit driven at a port exhibits an associated impedance across the terminals of the port.
• Matching these impedances optimizes the transfer of power from the source to the load.
• A source with a voltage divider:
Thevenin’s and Norton’s Theorems
• Ideal sources
• An ideal voltage source has zero source impedance.
• An ideal current source has zero source admittance.*
• Thevenin’s theorem: any electrical signal source is equivalent to an ideal voltage source in series with a source impedance.
• Norton’s theorem: any electrical signal source is equivalent to an ideal current source in parallel with a source admittance.*

* (Admittance is the complex reciprocal of impedance)

Thevenin and Norton example
• Actual source
• Thevenin equivalent
• Norton equivalent
DC matching: simple example and proof
• A battery with voltage Vg and internal resistance Rg is connected to a load resistor Rl.
• The power delivered to Rl is
• The maximum deliverable power occurs for
Impedance transformation
• Ideally is a lossless two-port circuit.
• Conservation of energy:
• Reciprocal: power can flow either way.
• Realizations:
• Wideband: transformer with n1, n2 turns,
• Resonant “Pi” network: at resonance,
Magnetic transformers
• The magnetic field is proportional to the total primary current linking the magnetic path.
• Magnetic induction is the permeability of the magnetic path.
• The voltage induced per turn is , so the secondary voltage , where .
• Similarly, , so .
• Conservation of energy requires , so
• Impedance is transformed as .

Bandwidth and Noise
• Note the Pi net bandwidth was about 3 [kHz].
• The transformer was wideband.
• Why is bandwidth important?
• Response time is inversely proportional to bandwidth. This limits the range resolution of the rangefinder.
• Noise is directly proportional to bandwidth. This limits the maximum operational distance for the rangefinder.
• Therefore, a design tradeoff exists between range resolution and maximum range.
Impedance matching homework problem

Find the load impedance that accepts the maximum deliverable power from a 5 [V] sinusoidal source Vg at 40 [kHz], having a source impedance due to an internal series resistance of 50 [Ohms] and inductance 500 [uH]. What components, values, and topology will implement this load?

Sources homework problem
• Show the Thevenin and Norton equivalents of the circuit shown.
• Extra credit:

Suppose you were given a sealed box 0.05[m] x 0.05[m] x 0.02[m], weighing 0.1[kg] with two electrical terminals. It is totally opaque, even to x-rays and ultrasound and cannot be disassembled for inspection. When open circuited, the voltage across the terminals is 1 [V]. When short circuited, the current between the terminals is 1 [A]. You are told this is either a Thevenin source or a Norton source. How would you determine which? You may make any measurements you like on the unit.
