Impedance Matching with Smith Chart
The objective of a matching network is to move to the center of the Smith Chart
The normalized input impedance will be located at the center of the chart, where =0
Matching network must therefore move us from the load to the center of the Smith chart
Moving away from the load along the Zo line generates the constant | | circle
Of special interest are two points where the circle crosses the 1 jx circle
At either of these points, inserting the appropriate reactive element (that is adding jx ) will then move us to the matched condition at the center of the chart
Consider a 50- T-line terminated in an 11+ j25 load.
zL= 0.22 +j 0.5
Move a distance d of 0.112 along the constant | | circle to point 1+j 2.0
We insert a series capacitive element of normalized reactance j 2.0, corresponding to j 100
Zin = 1+ j2.0 - j2.0= 1+j0
The value of capacitance depends on frequency
j100 = jC
(a) A 50- T-line terminated in an 11+ j25 load (b) T-line with tuning capacitor added at the appropriate distance from the load.
Suppose that the line in Example 1 is a coaxial cable made with a Teflon dielectric, and it must operate at 800 MHz. determine (a) the length of the coaxial line between the load and the capacitor and (b) the value of the series capacitor added to provide an impedance match.
Eps = 2.1 (for Teflon) Answer: (a) d=2.9 cm, (b) C=2.0 pF
The previous matching networks employed series elements. It is often desirable to add shunt elements instead for matching. Now we must use the Smith Chart as a normalized admittance chart, with characteristic admittance Yo = 1/Zo The convenience of admittances is that shunt values may be added.
Admittance of Shunt Stubs
(a) Admittance relationship to impedance. (b) Adding shunt elements using admittances.
Admittance of Shunt Stubs
A 50 line is terminated in a pair of parallel load impedances of 50 + j 100 and 50 j 100 . Determine the total load admittance and impedance seen by the line.
Answer: 8 mS, 125
Lossless T-line Stubs (either shorted or open ended)
Consider a shorted line of length d (as shown below):

The goal is to move to the centre of the Smith Chart, used as the admittance chart. From the normalized load admittance, a section of through line is traversed to arrive at the 1 jb circle. At this point we add a shunt stub of normalized admittance 0 jb . The sum of these admittances take us to the center of the chart where Yin = Yo and Zin = Zo, matching is complete.

In Example 2, we chose the first intersection with the 1 jb circle (at 1+ j 2.0) in designing the matching network. We could also have continued on to the second intersection, occurring at 1 j 2.0. Determine the through line length d, and the stub length l for the matching network using this second intersection.
Answer: d= 0.200 g, l=0.426 g
For Example 3, determine the through line length d, and the stub length l for the open-ended shunt matching network, if the other intersection with the 1 jb circle is chosen.
Answer: d= 0.348 g, l=0.161 g
