THE SCATTERING MATRIX: NORMALIZED TO COMPLEX N-PORT LOAD NETWORKS.
ILLINOIS UNIV URBANA COORDINATED SCIENCE LAB
The scattering matrix was normalized to complex n-port loads and some of the elementary properties of this generalized scattering matrix were discussed. The normalized scattering matrix was obtained in a straight-forward manner from both the current-basis and voltage-basis scattering matrices. These matrices are presented from the intuitively attractive viewpoint of measures of the deviation of actual circuit behavior. The optimal matching condition employed was the specialization to the time-invariant case of that obtained for complex, time-varying n-port networks excited by arbitrary wave-forms. Author
