AIM:-TO STUDY AND DESIGN WILKINSON EQUAL POWER DIVIDER AND WILKINSON UNEQUAL POWER DIVIDER FOR A SYSTEM IMPEDENCE OF 50 AT FREQUENCY OF 5 GHz Er=10.2 ,H =1.58 mm .

THEORY:- The lossless T-junction suffers from the problem of not being matched at all ports and does not have any isolation between ports . T he resistive divider can be

matched at all ports but even though it is not lossless , isolation is not achieved. The Wilkinson power divider is lossless when the output ports are matched that is only reflected power is dissipated . The Wilkinson power divider can be made with arbitrary power division but we still we first consider the equal split 3 dB case . This division is often made in microstrip or strip line form.

The Wilkinson type unequal power can be made with unequal splits . It can be used for feeding an antenna as different output combinations can be made by wisely choosing the different power ratios.

STUDY AND DESIGN OF BRANCH LINE COUPLER IN MICROSTRIP LINE

AIM:- The objective of this experiment is to study characteristics of a microstrip branch line coupler. We feed power to one of the ports of the coupler and plot reflected power as well as power emerging out of the other three ports of the coupler. Determine centre frequency and 20dB isolation bandwidth of the coupler. THEORY:- A two-stub branch line coupler is a fundamental direct-coupled structure in which the main line is directly bridged to the secondary line by means of two-shunt branches. The length of each branch and their spacing are all quarter-wavelength /4 in the transmission medium at the centre frequency f. Za and Zb denote the characteristic impedances of the series and shunt branches respectively. All input and output lines have same characteristics impedance Z. DESIGN:- In the following, design of a 3-dB branch line coupler with the following specifications is illustrated: Center Frequency, f= 5GHz Mid band coupling, C=3dB

Source and Load impedance= 50

Zb = Z. To get the final layout in microstrip, we need to convert the impedances and electrical lengths into physical dimensions. The final dimensions of the branch line coupler for substrate parameters r=2.16, h=1.58 mm are:

AIM:- The objective of this experiment is to study return loss characteristics of the transformer fed patch antenna.

THEORY:- Microstrip patch antenna consists of a resonant patch of length L and width W printed on a substrate. The length L of the patch radiator is selected such that it satisfies the condition of resonance. It is usually chosen close to /2 such that the input impedance of patch is pure real at the desired frequency. Since the two ends of patch are open, an open ended correction factor is usually taken into account while calculating the physical length L of the patch. The patch width generally lies between 0.5 to 2 times the lengths. The width can be used to vary the input impedance of the patch. As we have to ultimately match the patch input impedance to some extend by changing the patch width W. If W is chosen very small, the antenna radiation efficiency will be reduced. So there is a trade off between input impedance and the radiation efficiency. Once W and L are selected, we can calculate the input impedance of the patch and then use a quarter-wave transformer of length in between to match this impedance to the 50- feed line as shown in figure. Design:- In the following, design of a transformer coupled patch antenna at fr=5 GHz is illustrated: For the substrate parameter r=3.2, h=0.762, calculate width of the 50-ohm feed line with transmission line software: w1= 1.834 mm, eff =2.584 For an efficient radiator, a practical width that leads to good radiation efficiencies is given as:

W=20.685 mm

The patch length L is determined as

eff=3.016

And the open circuit end correction

THEORY:- The mean length of three branches is quarter wavelength /4 in the transmission medium at the center frequency f, whereas, one of the branches is 3 /4 long.

DESIGN-

AIM:- To study and design coupled band pass filter with coupled line. To plot the transmission and reflection characteristics of a band stop filter and determine its centre frequency, bandwidth, minimum and maximum insertion loss/return loss in the pass band.

THEORY:- A coupled section of transmission line of length of /4 transfer the power from the main line to the coupled line over a band of frequency .Thus a section of the coupled line is a potential candidate for the development of the bpf. Such filter has bandwidth limited to 20%. The larger the bandwidth requires very tight coupling i.e narrow separation between the two lines. If the cascaded section of coupled line sections form a band pass filter , then cascading of equivalent circuit with j-inverter also forms a bpf.The simplest form of an inverter is the quarter wave transformer.Such type ofcircuit componenets transform any load impedence to Z o2 ., ZO is the characteristic impedence of the section.This type of j inverter circuit has to be matched with the original network using two types of resonant circuit :series and parallel. This type of filters yield a narrow to moderate bandwidth.

AIM:-Design a coupled line band pass filter with N=5 and 0.5 dB equal-ripple response. The center frequency is 2.0 GHz, the bandwidth is 10%, and Z0=50.

For a 5th order 0.5 dB equal ripple filter,

THEORY - Using Hilo filters in micro strip line involves using alternative sections of high and low characteristic impedances. These filters are easy to implement and take less space than a similar low pass filter using stubs. Because of the approximations involved, their electrical performances is not good, these are limited to applications where sharp cut off is not required. We replace series inductance with high impedence sections and shunt capacitances with low impedance sections in case of a low pass filter prototype. The ratio of zh / zl should be as high as possible so that it can be easily fabricated.

DESIGN

AIM: - Design a hi-lo impedance low pass filter having a maximally flat response and a cut off frequency of 2.5 GHz. It is necessary to have more than 10 dB insertion loss at 4 GHz. The filter impedance is 50 ; the highest practical line impedance is 120 , and the lowest is 20 . Consider the effect of losses when this filter is implemented with a microstrip substrate having h=0.158 cm, r=4.2, tan =0.02, and copper conductor of 0.5 mil thickness. THEORY: Series inductor can be replaced by high impedance line. Shunt capacitor can be replaced by low impedance line. For fc=2.5 GHz and above 10 dB insertion loss at 4 GHz the filter will be a 3rd order filter. electrical length is given by Bl =LZo/Zh ................... for inductor

DESIGN

Aim:-

To study and design inset fed patch antenna in microstrip

Theory:- Microstrip patch antenna consists of a resonant patch of length L and width W printed on a substrate. The length L of the patch radiator is selected such that it satisfies the condition of resonance. It is usually chosen close to /2 such that the input impedance of patch is pure real at the desired frequency. Since the two ends of patch are open, an open ended correction factor is usually taken into account while calculating the physical length L of the patch. The patch width generally lies between 0.5 to 2 times the lengths. The width can be used to vary the input impedance of the patch. As we have to ultimately match the patch input impedance to some extend by changing the patch width W. If W is chosen very small, the antenna radiation efficiency will be reduced. So there is a trade off between input impedance and the radiation efficiency. Once W and L are selected, we can calculate the input impedance of the patch and then use a quarter-wave transformer of length in between to match this impedance to the 50- feed line as shown in figure.

The design frequency,

f=5ghz,

ER=3.2,

h =0.762mm

For an efficient radiator, a practical width that leads to good radiation efficiencies is given as:

W=20.685 mm

The patch length L is determined as

eff=3.016

And the open circuit end correction

G1=0.002875 Rin=173.94 To calculate length lof inset to match the impedence to 50 we use the formula: ZO = RIN cos ( l /L) Therefore, l =5.45 mm

Now we measure return loss of the transformer or coupled pach antenna and determine its resonance frequency and calculate its 10 db return loss bandwidth.

GRAPH:-

RESULT:1)The design frequency is 5 ghz 2)The measured return loss is -14.97 db

CONCLUSION:The transformer fed antenna thus designed shows a measured return loss of -14.97 db .This is not desirable. Hence the antenna designed above is not an optimum one for practical use.

DESIGN-

AIM:-To design a 10 db single section coupled line coupler. Dielectric consant of 9.8, a characteristic impedence of 50, centre frequency of 10 ghz and h=1.58mm.

THEORY:-When two unshielded transmission line are close together power can be coupled between the lines due to interaction of electromagnetic field of each line.Such lines are referred to as coupled lines. Here voltage coupling factor is C =10exp(-10/20)=0.316 Zoe= Zo(1+c/1-c)=69.35
