Abstract : An arbitrary load impedance is matched over a wide band of frequencies to a constant-resistance generator by means of a passiveg dissipative 4-pole. Theoretical limitations are derived which relate the power dissipated in the load to the impedance mismatch seen by the generator. The optimum matching network from the standpoint of maximum power transrission efficienoy is a 4-pole which requires no incre than one resistor in its synthesis. The theory can also be applied to the wide band matching of an arbitrary generator to a constant resistance load. Normalization methods are described which can take account of the variation with frequency of the available power of the generator.
