skrf.circuit.Circuit.Ground

classmethod Circuit.Ground(frequency, name, z0=50)[source]

Return a 1-port network of a grounded link, to be used in a Circuit description.

Passing the frequency and name is mandatory.

The ground link is modelled as an infinite admittance.

Parameters
  • frequency (Frequency) – Frequency common to all other networks in the circuit

  • name (string) – Name of the ground.

  • z0 (real) – Characteristic impedance of the port. Default is 50 Ohm.

Returns

ground – (External) 2-port network

Return type

Network object

Examples

In [1]: freq = rf.Frequency(start=1, stop=2, npoints=101)

In [2]: ground = rf.Circuit.Ground(freq, name='GND')
