The energy conservation of lossless network reflects a series of novel symmetry in S parameter. This paper presents the generalized modulus symmetry, spurious reciprocity, constant characteristic phase and determinant of the lossless block network. The perfect matching condition of block load network [Γl] and the invariable lossless property of S parameter of generalized block network are developed. Application examples are given to illustrate the application and validity of the proposed theory.
