skrf.network.s2y

skrf.network.s2y(s: numpy.ndarray, z0: Union[numbers.Number, Sequence[numbers.Number], numpy.ndarray] = 50, s_def: str = 'power') → numpy.ndarray[source]

convert scattering parameters [1] to admittance parameters [2]

Equations are the inverse of s2z().

Parameters:
  • s (complex array-like) – scattering parameters
  • z0 (complex array-like or number) – port impedances
  • s_def (str -> s_def : can be: 'power', 'pseudo' or 'traveling') – Scattering parameter definition : ‘power’ for power-waves definition [3], ‘pseudo’ for pseudo-waves definition [4]. ‘traveling’ corresponds to the initial implementation. Default is ‘power’.
Returns:

y – admittance parameters

Return type:

complex array-like
