Transmission Lines

Study of transmissions lines: characteristic impedance, propagation constant, standing wave ratio and reflection coefficient. Transmission line response to transients. Bounce diagrams. Lossless and lossy line analysis using classical approach as well as graphical approach (Smith Chart). Voltage and power calculations on transmission lines. Matching techniques for transmission lines and discrete circuits. Measurements using vector network analyzers. Prerequisite: EE-159 or EL-150. Offered spring semester only. (2-2-3)
