Attenuation Formula (cont.) From conservation of energy: where = power dissipated per length at point z so 4 S

Attenuation Formula (cont.) Hence As  z  0 : Note: The point z = 0 is arbitrary. 5

Attenuation Formula (cont.) General formula: z0z0 This is a perturbational formula for the conductor attenuation. 6 The power flow and power dissipation are usually calculated assuming the fields are those of the mode with PEC conductors.

Attenuation on Transmission Line Attenuation due to Conductor Loss The current of the TEM mode flows in the z direction. 7

Attenuation on Line (cont.) C= C A + C B Power dissipation due to conductor loss: Power flowing on line: zz S A B CACA CBCB I ( Z 0 is assumed to be approximately real.) 8

Example (cont.) Calculate R: 16

Example (cont.) This agrees with the formula obtained from the “DC equivalent model.” (The DC equivalent model assumes that the current is uniform around the boundary, so it is a less general method.) b  a  DC equivalent model of coax 17

The “external inductance” L 0 accounts for magnetic energy only in the external region (between the conductors). This is what we get by assuming PEC conductors. An extra inductance per unit length  L is added to the TL model in order to account for the internal inductance of the conductors. 18

Summary of High-Frequency Formulas for Coax Assumption:  << a 22

Low Frequency (DC) Coax Model At low frequency (DC) we have: a b c t = c - b Derivation omitted 23

Tesche Model This empirical model combines the low-frequency (DC) and the high-frequency (HF) skin-effect results together into one result by using an approximate circuit model to get R(  ) and  L(  ). F. M. Tesche, “A Simple model for the line parameters of a lossy coaxial cable filled with a nondispersive dielectric,” IEEE Trans. EMC, vol. 49, no. 1, pp. 12-17, Feb. 2007. Note: The method was applied in the above reference for a coaxial cable, but it should work for any type of transmission line. 24 (Please see the Appendix for a discussion of the Tesche model.)

Wheeler Incremental Inductance Rule x y A B L 0 is the external inductance (calculated assuming PEC conductors) and  n is an increase in the dimension of the conductors (expanding the surface into the active field region). Wheeler showed that R could be expressed in a way that is easy to calculate (provided we have a formula for L 0 ): H. Wheeler, "Formulas for the skin-effect," Proc. IRE, vol. 30, pp. 412-424, 1942. 27
