TASK INTRODUCTION 
You are an electronics engineer working for a company who specialise in developing twoport networks. You have been asked to analyse a customer's specifications.
TASK 1: (Apply twoport network model to the solution of practical problems)
Part A: For each of the attenuators shown in Fig 1 below determine the characteristic impedance R_{0}.
Part B: For the attenuator shown in Fig 2 below determine:
(i) the input resistance when the output port is open circuited.
(ii) the input resistance when the output port in short circuited.
(iii) the characteristic impedance of the network.
Task 2: (Design and test symmetrical attenuators against computer models)
Part A: A Tsection attenuator is needed to provide voltage attenuation of 30 dB with a characteristic impedance of 500 Ω. Design an appropriate attenuator. Ensure you show all of your calculations.
Using simulation software, model the attenuator you have designed to determine if your circuit meets the requirements. Is the attenuation as expected? Is the input resistance the same as the load resistance? You should include printouts indicate.
Part B: Design πnetwork attenuator that will have a characteristic impedance of 50 Ω and an attenuator of 6 dB. Ensure you show all of your calculations.
Using simulation software, model the attenuator you have designed in top determine if your circuit meets the task requirements. Is the attenuation as expected? Is the input resistance the same as the load resistance? You should include printouts of your results, these should be appropriately annotated and clearly explain what the printouts indicate.
Opportunity for Merit and Distinction:
Part A: For a nominal Tnetwork terminated by an impedance Z_{0} and the "lookingin" impedance is also Z_{0}.
Prove form first principles that Z_{0} = √(Z_{A}^{2 }+ 2Z_{A}Z_{B})
(The derivation must be step by step and reference if any must be included).
Part B: For a nominal πnetwork terminated by an impedance Z_{0} and the "lookingin" impedance is also Z_{0}.
Prove form first principles that Z_{0} = √(Z_{1}Z_{2}^{2}/Z_{1} + 2Z_{2})
Part C: Produce a fully detailed report that uses technical language fluently and clearly explains the analysis of the steps in task 3 in a professional manner.
To write only merit and distinction.
