ADS_Phased array_coupled oscillators - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Good afternoon,
I am studying electrical engineering n' computer science.I use ADS2002(Advanced Design System ) of Agilent for my final project. My diploma thesis is about linear phased array based on coupled oscillators. I am using 4 VCOs(fixed frequency oscillators by varactor) and I couple the consecutive VCOs with a coupling network, which have 2 resistors and 1 transmission line.I have many problems to simulate this circuit in ADS2002, because I do not know how I should simulate 4 VCOs which belong to the same schematic(For example,I can not understand about where the oscport should be placed, which must be only one in the whole circuit). I would like to take some figures about the transient, locking and steady state of the system and its phase dynamics. Could you help me with some advices or tutorials or anything else which will be useful for me? I really need help..

Thank you in advance, Panos

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
