Abstract

Problem statement: This study presented a jointly application of bond graph technique and wave-scattering formalism for a new realization called scattering bond graph model which has the main advantage to show up explicitly the different wave propagation. Approach: For that, we proposed to find the scattering matrix from the causal bond graph model of a low-pass filter based on Microstrip lines and with cut-off frequency 10 GHz, while starting with determination of the integro-differentials operators which is based, in their determination, on the causal ways and causal algebraic loops present in the associated bond graph model and which gives rise to the wave matrix which gathers the incident and reflected waves propagation of the studied filter. Results: The scattering parameters, founded from the wave matrix, will be checked by comparison of the simulation results. Conclusion: Thereafter, we use a procedure to model directly this scattering matrix under a special bond graph model form often called “Scattering Bond Graph Model”.
