An Unequal Dual-Frequency Wilkinson Power Divider with Optional Isolation Structure
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 91, 393-411, 2009
Abstract
In this paper, we propose a generalized Wilkinson power divider operating at two arbitrary frequencies with unequal power dividing ratio. To achieve unequal power division and perfect matching at dual-frequency, a novel structure consisted of four dual-frequency transformers in two sections is proposed. For the compact power divider, the parallel and series RLC structures can be chosen to obtain effective isolation between the two outports according to different frequency ratios. Furthermore, the closed-form design equations of the unequal dual-frequency power divider are derived based on circuit theory and transmission line theory. Finally, simulation and experiment results of two examples including parallel and series RLC structures indicate that all the theoretical features of these unequal power dividers can be fulfilled at dual-frequency simultaneously.
