A moment solution for waveguide junction problems
Abstract
A moment procedure for solving waveguide junction problems is given using the generalized network formulation for aperture problems. As an illustration, the procedure is applied to a transverse planar junction between two uniform cylindrical waveguides. The generalized admittance network representation of the junction is first obtained. Its scattering matrix representation is then deduced from the former representation. A discussion shows that the conservation of complex power technique, which handles the same class of junctions, is a specialization of the moment procedure.
