(i) We demonstrated here application to the impedance and admittance matrices; however there are other important two-port network parameters such as the transmission and scattering matrices for which some of the elements inside the matrix are unit-less and obtaining an equivalent circuit requires transformation from these types of parameters back to impedance or admittance parameters.
