Hello Everyone,
I have an equation which is the relationship between reflection coefficient and impedance
r=(ZLZS)/(ZL+ZS)
ZL and ZS are complex numbers. Typical ZS is always 50+j0.
At the moment I am doing the following for the calculation
ZL imaginary part
ENTER
ZL real part
ENTER
ZS imaginary part
ENTER
ZS real part
ENTER
COMPLEX

Then this gives me the numerator, I write this down and then
ZL imaginary part
ENTER
ZL real part
ENTER
ZS imaginary part
ENTER
ZS real part
ENTER
COMPLEX
+
To get the denominator and again write this down.
Finally I enter the complex numbers in again and / to get the reflection coefficient in rectangluar form and then finally convert it to polar.
I tried writing a program for this but the answer came out completely wrong, though if I do it by hand it's okay.
Anyone have any hints on how to start this?
Also anyone have any RF programs they would like to share?
Does the HP35s handle complex numbers better, so that I could use it as an excuse to buy one?
Thanks,
Rav
