Field theory analysis and design of circular waveguide components

Balaji, Uma 31 July 2018 (has links)
RF/microwave terrestrial point-to-point and satellite communication systems employ a large number of waveguide components operating at microwave and millimeter wave frequencies. Accurate design of these components for optimum performance of the overall system is critical. To achieve this, computationally efficient and accurate numerical methods are indispensable tools in the design and optimization of components and subsystems. Among the large variety of potentially suitable numerical methods, the mode matching method in conjunction with the generalized scattering matrix technique has been found to be one of the most reliable and straightforward techniques to design waveguide components. In the past the method has been mainly applied to eigenvalue and scattering problems in rectangular waveguides. In this thesis, the mode matching method is extended to ridge waveguide problems in circular waveguides and thus closes a gap in the literature that has existed for a long time. The thesis begins with a study of the basic principles of the mode matching method as it is known from rectangular waveguides. These principles are then applied to the analysis of the rectangular ridged and coaxial waveguide, followed by an eigenvalue analysis of ridged circular waveguide. Rather than rectangular ridges, ridges of uniform angular thickness (conically shaped) are used in the circular waveguide to avoid a mixed coordinate system which would render the mode matching method computationally very inefficient. On the other hand, conically shaped ridges are as easy to fabricate as rectangular ridges and are not detrimental to the electrical performance of the component. The thesis then continues to treat the discontinuity problem at the interface between the empty circular waveguide and ridged circular waveguide. To verify the computed scattering parameters, measurements were performed and good agreement was found. By cascading several discontinuities transformers and evanescent mode filters were designed. A fifth order filter was designed and fabricated and also here good agreement between measured and computed data was found. The final chapter in the thesis analyses the coupling between orthogonal modes in the presence of an asymmetric discontinuity. Determining the coupling factor between orthogonal modes is an integral part of the design of polarizers and dual mode filters and for conically shaped ridges, has not been published in the open literature yet. To realize various coupling coefficients, a single or double ridges must be placed at an arbitrary angle to the exciting wave. The mode matching method is extended to include also this case and various convergence tests have been performed to validate the algorithm . As a final example, the algorithm has been applied to design a circular polarizer with two ridges. Although only two-port problems are treated in this thesis, the basic framework for the mode matching method in circular waveguide has been established and can now be extended to three-port problems. This will be the subject of future work to analyze and design power dividers and orthomode transducers. / Graduate

Analysis and applications of multiple coupled line structures in an inhomogeneous medium

Chin, Youn Kang 21 May 1982 (has links)
The general expressions for finding the network functions, e.g., the immittance and the scattering parameters, of a general, uniformly coupled n-line structure in an inhomogeneous medium are derived in terms of the normal mode parameters of the system. These are used to compute or to derive the explicit expressions for the elements of the immittance matrix in terms of normal mode parameters. The scattering parameters of a general non-symmetrical directional coupler with arbitrary terminations are derived in terms of the known scattering parameters with a specified set of terminations such as characteristic non-mode converting terminations. The formulation is quite general and can be applied to various coupled guided wave systems, including coupled microstrip lines, slot lines, comb lines, dielectric waveguides and various other uniformly coupled transmission systems. The results obtained are used to present the procedure to determine the optimum terminations for directional couplers and sensitivity of various multiports, including couplers, to changes in terminations. It is shown that the coupler performance can be optimized in terms of the terminating impedances. The analysis and design procedure for both symmetrical and nonsymmetrical four-port coupled structures consisting of the symmetrical three lines in an inhomogeneous medium such as microstrips are presented. Tables and charts for the design of three-line structure are based on the closed form expressions for the immittance parameters. The analysis and design procedure for open-circuited interdigital multiple coupled microstrip line structures for applications as wideband DC blocks and filters are also presented. As in the case of the other microstrip structures, the initial design is based on the TEM assumption and the final geometry is then determined by the exact computation of the frequency response of the two ports. For larger numbers of lines, the design is based on the equivalent even- and odd-mode parameters of the n-line system. For this case, the TEM design equations, derived in terms of even- and odd-mode impedances of a pair of lines, can be translated into a physical configuration by using published results on coupled lines. / Graduation date: 1983

Modeling of nonlinear active and passive devices in three-dimensional TLM networks

Cascio, Lucia 07 June 2017 (has links)
The increase in clock rate and integration density in modem IC technology leads to complex interactions among different parts of the circuit. These interactions are poorly represented with traditional lumped circuit design methodologies. Traditional CAD tools, such as SPICE, provide very accurate models for a large variety of active devices, but their description of the passive part of the circuit is progressively becoming insuffcient, as the frequencies of the signals increase. Problems such as dispersion, crosstalk and package effects require a full electromagnetic approach in order to predict their impact on the final response of the circuit. On the other hand, the application of a full-wave numerical method for the analysis of a complete device containing nonlinear elements is not sustainable with the present computer capabilities. The spatial and time discretization steps required to accurately model the nonlinear part of the device are much smaller than those necessary to describe the distributed part of the circuit. In the present thesis, the possibility of modeling nonlinear devices with the three-dimensional TLM method has been explored; a new procedure has been successfully developed and implemented, linking the equivalent circuit representation of the nonlinear device to the transmission line model of the electromagnetic fields in the TLM network. No restrictions are applied on the size of the device, which can thus occupy more than a TLM cell. In order to model devices embedded in heterogenous media, a modification of the TLM node and relative scattering matrix has also been proposed. In view of linking the TLM field solver with a lumped element circuit CAD tool, the modified TLM scattering algorithm has remained independent of the specific device connected to the mesh. The general methodology shown in this thesis appears to be a promising approach to solve a large variety of electromagnetic problems containing nonlinear elements. / Graduate
