5-1 General Considerations Transmission lines connect a generator circuit to a load circuit at the receiving end. Transverse electromagnetic (TEM) lines have waves that propagate transversely.
5-2 Lumped-Element Model Transmission lines can be represented by a lumped-element circuit model.
5-2 Lumped-Element Model Lumped-element circuit model consists 4 transmission line parameters: 1.R’ (Ω/m) 2.L’ (H/m) 3.G’ (S/m) 4.C’ (F/m)
5-2 Lumped-Element Model In summary, All TEM transmission lines share the relations: where µ, σ, ε = properties of conductor
5-3 Transmission-Line Equations Transmission line equations in phasor form is given as
5-4 Wave Propagation on a Transmission Line The wave equation is derived as γ has real part α (attenuation constant) and imaginary part β (phase constant). Complex propagation constant
5-4 Wave Propagation on a Transmission Line Characteristic impedance Z 0 of the line is Phase velocity for propagating wave is where f = frequency (Hz) λ = wavelength (m)
Example 5.1 Air Line An air line is a transmission line for which air is the dielectric material present between the two conductors, which renders G’ = 0. In addition, the conductors are made of a material with high conductivity so that R’ ≈0. For an air line with characteristic impedance of 50 and phase constant of 20 rad/m at 700 MHz, find the inductance per meter and the capacitance per meter of the line.
Solution 5.1 Air Line The following quantities are given: With R’ = G’ = 0, The ratio is given by We get L’ from Z 0

5-5.2 Standing Waves 3 types of voltage standing-wave patterns: (a) Matched load (b) Short-circuited line (c) Open-circuited line
5-5.2 Standing Waves To find maximum and minimum values of voltage magnitude, we have
5-5.2 Standing Waves First voltage maximum occurs at First voltage minimum occurs at Voltage standing-wave ratio S is defined as

Example 5.9 Quarter-Wave Transformer A 50-Ω lossless transmission line is to be matched to a resistive load impedance with Z L = 100Ω via a quarter- wave section as shown, thereby eliminating reflections along the feedline. Find the characteristic impedance of the quarter-wave transformer.
Solution 5.9 Quarter-Wave Transformer To eliminate reflections at terminal AA’, the input impedance Z in looking into the quarter-wave line should be equal to Z 01, the characteristic impedance of the feedline. Thus, Z in = 50. Since the lines are lossless, all the incident power will end up getting transferred into the load Z L.
5-8 Power Flow on a Lossless Transmission Line We shall examine the flow of power carried by incident and reflected waves. Instantaneous power is the product of instantaneous voltage and current. More interested in time-averaged power flow Instantaneous Power Time-Average Power
There are 2 types of approach: 1) Time-Domain Approach Incident power and reflected wave power are For net average power delivered to the load,
