Problem statement: Further to research works made previously and which use collectively the scattering formalism and bond graph technique for the modeling of a physical systems often working in high frequencies, we propose, in this article, a comparative study (discussion) for the scattering matrix realization of a high-frequency physical system. Approach: This discussion is based, on the one hand, on a non-causal (acausal) bond graph model which represents the starting model for the determination of the scattering parameters. On the other hand, we shall use a causal bond graph model richer in information and to which we shall apply what we called in former articles: the analytical procedure of the scattering parameters exploitation with the aim of showing the importance of the causality notion in the physical systems study by the bond graph approach, as well as the importance of the ways and causal loops notion. Results: We will, initially, apply this discussion, to an elementary transmission line; in the second place, the application is carried out on the equivalent circuit of a band pass filter based on localized elements often used like microwave filters in high frequencies studies. Conclusion: We will finish this discussion by realizing the scattering bond graph model of a quadruple by pointing out the procedure used for the construction of this new type of bond graph model.
