Properties of Purely Reactive Foster and non-Foster Passive Networks

3D Smith Chart - RF CafeIn the year 2012 while completing his doctoral studies, Dr. Andrei Müller introduced the world's first publically available software for portraying the classical 2-dimensional Smith Chart in a 3-dimentional format. A brief report on the 3D Smith Chart software was posted here on RF Cafe, and an article entitled "The 3D Smith Chart and Its Practical Applications" was published in Microwave Journal magazine. Since that time, Dr. Müller has authored many scholarly articles on circuit theory dealing largely with complex impedances. Recently and in collaboration with Dr. Stepan Lucyszyn, the paper "Properties of Purely Reactive Foster and non-Foster Passive Networks" dealt with Foster and non-Foster passive networks with 'a strongly real function of real frequency of positive type' (IET Electronic Letters publication). It can be read in its entirety on the IET Digital Library website for a modest fee. An Abstract is reproduced with permission below to whet your appetite for the information contained therein.

Properties of Purely Reactive Foster and non-Foster Passive Networks

By Andrei A. Müller and Stepan Lucyszyn  -  ABSTRACT:

The mathematical concept of strongly real functions of positive and negative types is introduced to network theory for the first time. The driving-point reactance/susceptance of a pure Foster network, made up of only ideal positive inductance and capacitance elements, is a strongly real function of real frequency of positive type. As a corollary, for a pure non-Foster network made up of only ideal negative inductance and capacitance elements, the driving-point reactance/susceptance is a strongly real function of real frequency of negative type. It is shown that a condition for a purely reactive passive network to exhibit a positive or negative reactance/susceptance-frequency gradient is that the driving-point immittance should have alternating poles and zeroes lying on the real frequency axis. Finally, it is shown that either purely Foster or non-Foster networks can be constructed by combining ideal Foster and non-Foster reactive elements.

    Kirt Blattenberger,


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 tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
