Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) has been widely used for studying the performance of optical networks, especially those employing optical passive star couplers. Many models have been proposed for WDM on an optical passive star coupler, such as each station equipped with a single tunable transmitter and a single fixed wavelength receiver, and each station with multiple tunable transmitters and multiple tunable receivers. The current technology only allows the transceivers to be tunable in a small range, a fact ignored in previous studies. In this paper, we focus on the design of WDM optical passive star networks with tunable transmitters of limited tuning range and fixed wavelength receivers. The limited tuning range has effects on the maximum delay, the total number of wavelengths which can be used, and the topological embedding. Complete graphs, meshes, and hypercubes are the three topologies studied in this paper. The relationship between the total number of wavelengths which can be utilized and the embedded topology is established. The bound for the maximum delay is analyzed. The optimal embedding algorithms are given for the systems embedded with one of the three topologies
