026/100 Lumped Element Smith Chart Movements: Series Inductor

Example 3.5-1: Measure the amount of movement caused by the reactance added to the circuit below. Measure the change from the starting point to the end point on the Smith Chart.

026-1

The circuit simulated gives the following result:

026-2

Recall that the circuit without a series inductor had the following result:

025-3

Through this simulation, it is shown that adding a series inductor causes the smith chart diagram plot to move in a clockwise direction.

Note the change using the Smith Chart matching tool:
