The wireless communication system is one of the most important facilities of fuel cell hybrid power tram (FCHPT), which provides a strong guarantee for efficient and safe operation. As an indispensable part of the RF front-end of the transmitter and receiver, the miniaturization and high-performance trends of filtering power dividers are becoming evident. Based on the principle of filter power divider, a capacitor loaded power divider filter is designed and fabricated in this paper. The center

The frequency shift of 1.8 GHz can be achieved by changing the dielectric constant of the liquid crystal with an applied bias voltage, which can be used in millimeter wave communication system.
