Foster networks are only a subset of realisable networks, [14].

Network Analysis and Synthesis [Book]

Consequently, the plot of a Foster immittance function on nnetwork Smith chart must always travel around the chart in a clockwise direction with increasing frequency. Foster and Cauer equivalent networks version 1. For example, it is possible to create negative capacitance and inductance with negative impedance converter circuits.

Plot of the reactance of a capacitor against frequency. The realisation foter the driving point impedance is by no means unique. Foster’s reactance theorem is an important theorem in the fields of electrical network analysis and synthesis.

Foster’s reactance theorem

This work was commercially important; large sums of money could be saved by increasing the number of telephone conversations that could be carried on one line. You will also need Control System Toolbox xor Symbolic Math Toolbox to perform some initial transfer function manipulations.


Retrieved from ” https: The network consequently must consist entirely of inductors and capacitors and the impedance will foxter purely an imaginary number with zero real part.

In particular, it applies to distributed element networks, although Foster formulated it in terms of discrete inductors and capacitors. You are now following this Submission You will see updates in your activity feed You may receive emails, depending on your notification preferences.

Foster’s theorem applies equally to the admittance of a network, that is the susceptance imaginary part of admittance of a passive, lossless one-port monotonically increases with frequency.

These are called non-Foster networks. However, it is also possible to provide numerator and denominator coefficients explicitly. Requires Control System Toolbox. If the impedance is. Anv can be networkk scaling factor difference between them all elements of the immittance multiplied by the same scaling factor but the shape of the two immittance functions will be identical.

A parallel LC circuit is the dual of the series circuit and hence its admittance function is the same form as the impedance function of the series circuit. Other MathWorks country sites are not optimized for visits from your location. The algorithm is often being embedded into thermal modelling tools; therefore, usually you don’t have to perform this transformation externally.

Perhaps the most well known is Cauer’s ladder realisation from filter design.

The reactance passes through zero at the point where the magnitudes of the capacitor and inductor reactances are equal the resonant frequency and then continues to monotonically increase as the inductor reactance becomes progressively dominant.


The mathematics is carried out without specifying units until it is desired to calculate a specific example. The poles and zeroes of an immittance function completely determine the frequency characteristics of a Foster network.

Reactance is the imaginary part of the complex electrical impedance.

Foster’s theorem can thus be stated in a more general form as. A non-Foster network could match an antenna over a continuous band of frequencies.

Network Analysis and Synthesis

Views Read Edit Fooster history. For example, the usual passive Foster impedance matching networks can only match the impedance of an antenna with a transmission line at discrete frequencies, which limits the bandwidth of the antenna.

A one-port passive immittance consisting of discrete elements that is, not a distributed element circuit can be represented as a rational function of s.

This result may seem counterintuitive since admittance is the reciprocal of impedance, but is easily proved. Foster’s theorem is quite general. Comments caued Ratings 2.

Past the pole the reactance is large and negative and increasing towards zero where it is dominated by the capacitance. This page acuer last edited on 19 Octoberat
