A switching isolator is similar to a circulator, but one of the two output ports is terminated in a matched load.
By coupling wind and solar power generation with a control strategy that matched load demand to power generation, renewable energy (alone) was used to charge building heating and cooling thermal storage systems using an isolated microgrid.
Instead of the aperture-coupled patch elements, two-port aperture-coupled stacked-patch (ASP) antennas have been designed as the array elements and the conventional ASP antenna [21] is applied as the radiating matched load. The double-resonance property of the aperture-coupled stacked-patch maintains in the two-port form, which improves the pattern bandwidth and offers the array a better tolerance to the fabrication errors.
Therefore, the last element of each progressive linear array must be designed as a matched load to couple and radiate all the residual power at the end of the SIW array antenna.
The microstrip line is terminated with a matched load at end A and connected to the nonlinear component (mentioned in Section 2) at the other end B (see Fig.
In this method using an extra aperture as a matched load instead of a shorted waveguide has been proposed.
For example, a simple resonant [lambda]/2 dipole, terminated into a matched load impedance, has an effective cross-sectional area of 0.13 [[lambda].sup.2].
Such an antenna, when terminated in a matched load, will absorb exactly the same amount of power that it scatters.
It is noted that [absolute value of [S.sub.11]] was measured at input port of Probe1 while Probe2 was terminated with matched load. Fig.
* Improve the VSWR of a poorly matched load or source.
With self-calibration, fewer standards need to be measured during calibration, or a line is used instead of a matched load as a non-reflecting standard, which is particularly useful for calibrating analyzers with non-standard connectors.
If an antenna with a matched load resistor is immersed inside a blackbody radiator, the flux density will be constant from all directions.
