Transmission Line Transformations
• A lossless transmission line is a cascade of series
inductors and parallel capacitors.
• Cascading a transmission line to a complex termination
has a rotating effect on the Smith Chart.

Dr. Blanton - ENTC 4307 -   Introduction          3 / 30
• To calculate the input impedance (ZIN) of a
lossless transmission line (having
characteristic impedance ZTL and electrical
1. Locate the normalized termination (zT) on a Smith
Chart that is normalized to Zo = ZT.
2. Draw a concentric circle (constant VSWR) through
zT and rotate clockwise on this circle twice the
electrical length (2q in degrees) of the line.
3. Mark the end of the rotation of the circle and read
the normalized value of zIN.
4. Multiply zIN by Z0 to find ZIN.

• Textbooks recommend different procedures for
transmission line transformations on the Smith
Chart:
• one for movement towards loads and
• another toward sources.
• Instead of having two different directions, always rotate
clockwise from the starting impedance to find a new
impedance along the line.

• Since the Chart is a reflection coefficient tool, a
wave must travel twice (incident and reflected)
through the transmission line.
• Accordingly, we must rotate through an angle in
degrees that is two times the electrical length of the
line.

• Find the input impedance (ZIN) of the circuit
shown at f = 1 GHz.

ZT    30  j15
1. Find zT                 0.4  j 0.2 on a Smith Chart
ZTL      75
that is normalized to ZTL.

2. Draw a constant VSWR circle through zT rotate 2q=90
clockwise (154 to 64) from zT.

3. Read the normalized input impedance zIN = 1 +j1.

4. Unnormalize, ZIN = zIN Zo =( 1 +j1)75W.

5. Read GIN75=O.45Z64 in the 75~ system
6. 6. NOTE THAT Zin ALWAYS falls on the constant
VSWR circle that passes thru Z~

• At a given frequency, lumped capacitors and
inductors may be replaced by their equivalent
open circuited or short circuited transmission line
stubs.

Dr. Blanton - ENTC 4307 -   Introduction     10 / 30
• If a transmission line of less than 90 electrical
length is open circuited at one side, the other end
becomes similar to a capacitor.
• This element can be used as an open-circuited parallel
stub.

Dr. Blanton - ENTC 4307 -   Introduction           11 / 30
The input reflection coefficient of an open-circuited line is found on
the Smith Chart by starting at an open circuit termination (ZT =)
and rotate clockwise twice the electrical length (2 x 45 = 90)

Dr. Blanton - ENTC 4307 -    Introduction                  12 / 30
• If a transmission line of less than 90 electrical
length is short circuited at one end, the other side
behaves like an inductor.
• When used as a parallel branch, it represents a parallel
short circuited stub.
