Abstract : Many of the prevailing studies in network synthesis are devoted to approximately reproducing a prescribed amplitude, phase, or transient response. A design objective of renewed interest relates to another pertinent aspect of circuit behavior, its envelope or group delay. The extant techniques of arbitrary delay approximation, however, are sparse and lacking as practical design algorithms. As an aid to evolving more satisfactory delay equilization schemes, therefore, this discussion elucidates fundamental relationships governing the envelope delay of a passive, linear, lumped-constant network. In so doing, several salient classical results are examined and extended, and new analytical expressions are elicited which connect envelope delay to rational functions identifiable as the transfer functions of realizable networks.
