LC Highpass Tee

Model LC highpass tee network

Library

Ladder Filters sublibrary of the Physical library

Description

The LC Highpass Tee block models the LC highpass tee network described in the block dialog box, in terms of its frequency-dependent S-parameters.

For each inductor and capacitor in the network, the block first calculates the ABCD-parameters at each frequency contained in the vector of modeling frequencies. For each series circuit, A = 1, B = Z, C = 0, and D = 1, where Z is the impedance of the series circuit. For each shunt, A = 1, B = 0, C = Y, and D = 1, where Y is the admittance of the shunt circuit.

The LC Highpass Tee block then cascades the ABCD-parameters for each circuit element at each of the modeling frequencies, and converts the cascaded parameters to S-parameters using the RF Toolbox™ abcd2s function.

See the Output Port block reference page for information about determining the modeling frequencies.

The LC highpass tee network object is a two-port network as shown in the following circuit diagram.

[L1, L2, L3, ...] is the value of the 'L' property, and [C1, C2, C3, ...] is the value of the 'C' property.

Dialog Box

Main Tab

Inductance (H)

Vector containing the inductances, in order from source to load, of all inductors in the network. All values must be strictly positive. The vector cannot be empty.

Capacitance (F)

Vector containing the capacitances, in order from source to load, of all capacitors in the network. The capacitance vector must contain at least two elements. Its length must be equal to or one greater than the length of the vector you provide in the Inductance parameter. All values must be strictly positive.

Visualization Tab

For information about plotting, see Create Plots.

Examples

See the LC Bandpass Pi block for an example of an LC filter.
