Summary The Smith Chart is used as a graphical
aid for converting between a load impedance, Z,
and a reflection coefficient, ?. (This can be
done with or without sections of line being
present.)
? ZL
29
• To avoid having to use a different Smith Chart
for every value of Zo, the normalised impedance,
z, is used
• z ZL/Zo
• (z r jx)
• z can then be denormalised to obtain the load
impedance ZL, by multiplying by Zo
• ZL z.Zo
• The Smith Chart shows how the complex impedance
plane maps on to the reflection coefficient
• The circles correspond to lines of constant
normalised resistance, r.
• The arcs correspond to lines of constant
normalised reactance, x.

30
ZL, corresponds on the Smith Chart to rotating at
constant radius from zL CLOCKWISE through an
angle 2?l.
• (CLOCKWISE TOWARDS GENERATOR)
• If the line is not lossless, the radius
decreases as we rotate around the centre.
• Increasing the signal frequency causes zL to
rotate clockwise around Smith Chart at constant

31
• THE SMITH CHART AND VSWR
• The impedance of a load and line combination is
a maximum, zmax, when
• ? - 2?l ( ?) 0
• zmax VSWR
• Intersection of circle through load point, zL,
with right-hand half of resistance axis gives
VSWR and zmax.
