Lecture on Smith Chart

Smith Chart

The real part of r +jx

Constant r circles

Constant x circles

Superimposition of constant x and constant r circles gives smith chart

Some examples using Smith chart

Single-stub matching:
d
Ro

yi

yB
Ro

yL

ZL

Requirement: Yi  Yo or YB  Ys  Yo or y B  ys  1 For short-circuit stub,

l

ys   jb B  y B  1  jb B

(bB is real)

Hence, we have to find d such that yB has a unity real part and to find the length l of the stub required to cancel the imaginary part. N.B. short-circuited stub is preferred.
