AbstractIn this paper, a novel rational function approximation method, namely, model-based vector fitting (MVF), is proposed for accurate extraction of the characteristic functions of a coupled-resonator diplexer with a resonant type of junction from noise-contaminated measurement data. MVF inherits all the merits of the vector-fitting (VF) method and can also stipulate the order of the numerator of the model. Thus, MVF is suitable for the high-order diplexer system identification problem against measurement noise. With the extracted characteristic functions, a three-port transversal coupling matrix of a diplexer can be synthesized. A matrix orthogonal transformation strategy is also proposed to transform the obtained transversal matrix to a target coupling matrix configuration, whose entries have one-to-one relationship with the physical tuning elements. The whole model extraction procedure is analytical and robust, and can be used in a computer-aided tuning (CAT) program for coupled-resonator diplexers. A practical tuning example of a diplexer with a common resonator is given in detail to demonstrate the effectiveness and the practical value of the proposed method.
