Ans: The two port circuit will be reciprocal if interchanging an ideal voltage source at one port with an ideal ammeter at the other port gives the same ammeter reading.563 1.563 kΩ Z Parameter s Z11 Z12 Z21 Z22 (kΩ) (kΩ) (kΩ) (kΩ) 3.439 3.767 µA) = 1. the short circuit current is measured. .438 Simulated Calculated Questions: 1.439 1.563 3. A test voltage of 1 V is applied at the input port and the output port is short circuited .

I1’ = 167 µA Since I1’ = I2’ the reciprocity theorem is satisfied.e. the test voltage is applied at the output port and the input port is short circuited. the given two port circuit is reciprocal.I2’ = 167 µA Now the points of excitation and response are reversed i. The two port network is reciprocal since the forward and .

e. I1 = 291 µA With input port open and voltage applied at the output port. Explain whether this two-port circuit is symmetric.e. and why? Ans: To test for symmetry of the given two port circuit we open circuit one port say output port and apply a test voltage at the other port and measure the current emanating from voltage source. . the network is bilateral. 2.reverse transfer impedances i. Z12 & Z21 are equal i.

I2 = 291 µA Since I1 = I2 the network is symmetrical. Run the simulation for a loaded two port network as shown in Figure 3 and find the voltage and current gain. Since the impedance parameters of the above 2 port network are known. Gv=V2/Vs and current gain Gi=I2/I1. 3. the black box can be replaced by an . For the given two port network the driving point impedances Z11 and Z22 are equal as calculated before which makes the network symmetrical. Vs= 10 V DC.
