3.10. Transducer impedances

Let us look a little closer at the impedances at the terminals of electromechanical transducers. It has become popular over the years for electrical circuit specialists to express the equations for their circuits in matrix form. The matrix notation is a condensed manner of writing systems of linear equations [10,11]. We shall express the properties of transducers in matrix form for those who are familiar with this concept. An explanation of the various mathematical operations to be performed with matrices is beyond the scope of this book. The student not familiar with matrix theory is advised to deal directly with the simultaneous equations from which the matrix is derived. A knowledge of matrix theory is not necessary, ...
