Series RLC

Model series RLC network

Libraries:
RF Blockset / Equivalent Baseband / Series / Shunt RLC

Description

The Series RLC block models the series 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 = Z, C = 0, and D = 1, where

`$Z=\frac{-LC{\omega }^{2}+jRC\omega +1}{jC\omega }$`

and $\omega =2\pi f$.

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

Frequency data range, specified as a vector in hertz.

Reference impedance, specified as a nonnegative scalar in ohms.

Type of data plot to visualize using the given data, specified as one of the following:

• `X-Y plane` — Generate a Cartesian plot of the data versus frequency. To create linear, semilog, or log-log plots, set the Y-axis scale and X-axis scale accordingly.

• `Composite data` — Plot the composite data. For more information, see Create Plots Using Equivalent Baseband Library Blocks.

• `Polar plane` — Generate a polar plot of the data. The block plots only the range of data corresponding to the specified frequencies.

• `Z smith chart`, ```Y smith chart```, and `ZY smith chart` — Generate a Smith® chart. The block plots only the range of data corresponding to the specified frequencies.
