"Lumped element directional couplers are desirable at frequencies below the VHF range because they eliminate the large physical size necessary for the distributed element directional couplers. The purpose of this work is to describe the theory and design of such low frequency lumped element directional couplers. A model for the coupler is developed and the equations which describe it are derived. Scattering matrices for one and two section couplers are obtained. Computer solutions for three section couplers are presented. Experimental results for one, two, and three section couplers are presented and comparison with theory are made. Comparisons of theoretical and experimental work show that lumped element couplers are useful at low frequencies"--Abstract, page ii.
