A simple method for parametric analysis of grid amplifier performances is presented here. The proposed approach is based on the development of an equivalent transmission line model where each element of the grid is represented by an S-matrix derived from a full-wave simulation in an infinite array environment. The proposed technique makes it possible to investigate the dependency of grid amplifier performance on its major parameters taking into account the actual geometry of each part of the circuit while preserving the simulation efficiency.
