Characteristics of Transmission Lines

Distance and Voltage. See attached file for full problem description.

1. Given that r = alpha + j*beta
show that alpha and beta are given by

2. A transmission line operating at 500 Mrad/s has l = 0.5 uH/m, c = 30.8 pf/m, g = 10^-4 omg-1/m, and r = 25 omg/m.
a) calculate values for r, alpha, beta, v, lamda, and z0.
b) what distance down the line can a voltage signal travel before it is reduced to 10% of its original amplitude.
c) What distance must it travel to undergo a 90 degrees phase shift?


Solution Summary

It investigates the characteristics of transmission line. It also explains how the voltage signal travels down the line. The solution is detailed and has a rating of '5/5'.
