Shunt RLC

Model shunt RLC network


Ladders Filters sublibrary of the Physical library


The Shunt RLC block models the shunt RLC network described in the block dialog box, in terms of its frequency-dependent S-parameters.

For the given resistance, inductance, and capacitance, the block first calculates the ABCD-parameters at each frequency contained in the vector of modeling frequencies, and then converts the ABCD-parameters to S-parameters using the RF Toolbox™ abcd2s function. See the Output Port block reference page for information about determining the modeling frequencies.

For this circuit, A = 1, B = 0, C = Y, and D = 1, where


and ω=2πf.

The shunt RLC object is a two-port network as shown in the following circuit diagram.
