Abstract
In this paper, different topologies of dual-frequency modified 3-way Bagley polygon power dividers are designed and analyzed. Equal split power division is achieved at arbitrary design frequencies. In the first structure, two-section transmission line transformer is used to realize the dual-frequency operation. In the second and third structures, dual-frequency T-shaped and π-shaped matching networks are used. For the sake of simplicity, closed form design equations are presented for each matching network. To validate the design procedure, three examples are designed, simulated, and fabricated. The three matching networks are explored through these three examples. The design frequencies are chosen to be 0.5 GHz and 1 GHz.
