Abstract:

A parameter independence factor for two-part networks is defined and a method for its calculation using finite differences is shown. An approach to two-part scattering-parameter circuit design using computer optimization techniques is developed and illustrations are presented to demonstrate the utilization of a digital computer for implementing this approach. The versatility of the approach is clarified by demonstrating how both standard network design criteria and parameter independent network design requirements are specified and met. This design technique has direct Air Force application in the areas of microwave network design and Electronic Warfare with particular emphasis on the independence of the network parameters with respect to device parameters.
