Abstract : The patent relates to means for measuring the current in a component of a complex network. A method is presented which allows measurement of impedances from 1 to 100,000 ohms. This range covers components typical in radio frequency (R.F.) circuitry, from by-pass capacitors (representing relatively low impedances) to moderately large R.F. chokes (high impedances), in the 1 to 500 megacycle per second mc./s. frequency range. An object is to provide an improved impedance measuring means. Another object is to provide means for measuring the impedance of a network within a complex electrical system over a wide range of frequencies.
