Influences of Matching

As the complex impedance is now visualized in the Smith Chart, it is important to know how a change of the matching component influences the complex impedance. The following figure shows an overview of the possible matching circuits and changes in the Smith Chart.
Figure 1. Matching Network Impedance Influence

A change in matching components leads to a complex impedance change, which results in a change to a point or trace in the plot. The following list belongs to the networks described in the preceding figure and gives an impression about the impedance change depending on the used network and the modification of the corresponding value:
