MINIATURIZATION OF WILKINSON POWER DIVIDERS BY USING DEFECTED GROUND STRUCTURES

By H. Oraizi and M. S. Esfahlan

Full Article PDF (598 KB)

Abstract:
It is proposed that the application of defected ground structures (DGS) and electromagnetic bandgap (EBG) reduce the phase velocity, increase effective permittivity of microstrips and reduce the effective the wavelength which eventually lead to the reduction of overall length of Wilkinson power dividers. Furthermore, the adjacent strip lines may approach each other, which cause coupling problems. The undesired coupling maybe cancelled by connecting a capacitance in parallel with the isolation resistor of Wilkinson power divider. Application of DGS and EBG will not only reduce the dimensions of the divider, but also improves its scattering parameters.
