dc.description.abstractENGLISH ABSTRACT: Balanced loads such as antennas normally require baluns when they are measured. For wide band applications, designing and building a balun complicates the measurement and introduces errors. A simple model for load impedances was developed, together with a novel measurement procedure. The procedure enables the measurement of balanced loads using a network analyzer with no balun. Measured and simulated results are presented.en_ZA
dc.description.abstractAFRIKAANSE OPSOMMING: Gebalanseerde laste soos antennas benodig gewoonlik balons om korrek gemeet te word. Die ontwerp van 'n balon vir wye band toepassings bemoeilik die metings en veroorsaak foute. 'n Eenvoudige model vir die lasimpedansies is ontwikkel sowel as 'n eenvoudige meetmetode. Die metode word gebruik om die gebalanseerde laste te meet met 'n netwerk analiseerder sonder die gebruik van 'n balon. Gemete en gesimuleerde resultate word getoon.af_ZA
