Syntax

  • g = powergain(s_params,z0,zs,zl,'Gt')
  • g = powergain(s_params,z0,zs,'Ga')
  • g = powergain(s_params,z0,zl,'Gp')
  • g = powergain(s_params,'Gmag')
  • g = powergain(s_params,'Gmsg')
  • g = powergain(hs,zs,zl,'Gt')
  • g = powergain(hs,zs,'Ga')
  • g = powergain(hs,zl,'Gp')
  • g = powergain(hs,'Gmag')
  • g = powergain(hs,'Gmsg')

Description

g = powergain(s_params,z0,zs,zl,'Gt') calculates the transducer power gain of the 2-port network s_params.

g = powergain(s_params,z0,zs,'Ga') calculates the available power gain of the 2-port network.

g = powergain(s_params,z0,zl,'Gp') calculates the operating power gain of the 2-port network.

g = powergain(s_params,'Gmag') calculates the maximum available power gain of the 2-port network.

g = powergain(s_params,'Gmsg') calculates the maximum stable gain of the 2-port network.

g = powergain(hs,zs,zl,'Gt') calculates the transducer power gain of the network represented by the S-parameter object hs.

g = powergain(hs,zs,'Ga') calculates the available power gain of the network represented by the S-parameter object hs.

g = powergain(hs,zl,'Gp') calculates the operating power gain of the network represented by the S-parameter object hs.

g = powergain(hs,'Gmag') calculates the maximum available power gain of the network represented by the S-parameter object hs.

g = powergain(hs,'Gmsg') calculates the maximum stable gain of the network represented by the S-parameter object hs.

Input Arguments

expand all

hs — 2-port S-parametersS-parameter object

2-port S-parameters, specified as an RF Toolbox™ S-parameter object.

s_params — 2-port S-parametersarray of complex numbers

2-port S-parameters, specified as a complex 2-by-2-by-N array.

z0 — Reference impedance50 (default) | positive scalar

Reference impedance in ohms, specified as a positive scalar. If the first input argument is an S-parameter object hs, the function uses hs.Impedance for the reference impedance.

zl — Load impedance50 (default) | positive scalar

Load impedance in ohms, specified as a positive scalar.

zs — Source impedance50 (default) | positive scalar

Source impedance in ohms, specified as a positive scalar.

Output Arguments

expand all

g — Power gainvector

Unitless power gain values, returned as a vector. To obtain power gain in decibels, use 10*log10(g).

If the specified type of power gain is undefined for one or more of the specified S-parameter values in s_params, the powergain function returns NaN. As a result, g is either NaN or a vector that contains one or more NaN entries.

Examples

Calculate power gains for a sample 2-port network:

s11 = 0.61*exp(j*165/180*pi);
s21 = 3.72*exp(j*59/180*pi);
s12 = 0.05*exp(j*42/180*pi);
s22 = 0.45*exp(j*(-48/180)*pi);
sparam = [s11 s12; s21 s22];
z0 = 50;
zs = 10 + j*20;
zl = 30 - j*40;
%Calculate the transducer power gain of the network
Gt = powergain(sparam,z0,zs,zl,'Gt')
%Calculate the available power gain of the network
Ga = powergain(sparam,z0,zs,'Ga')
%Calculate the operating power gain of the network
Gp = powergain(sparam,z0,zl,'Gp')
%Calculate the maximum available power gain of the network
Gmag = powergain(sparam,'Gmag')
%Calculate the maximum stable power gain of the network
Gmsg = powergain(sparam,'Gmsg')
