## LOW-FREQUENCY ELECTRIC CIRCUITS

AND TRANSMISSION LINES
Transmission lines differ from the low-frequency
electric circuits in the following features :

## Maximum physical dimension of a low-frequency electric

circuit is very much smaller than the operation wavelength , so the
propagation time for an electric signal is so short that it does not need
to be taken into account;

## Transmission lines are usually a considerable multiples of

wavelength and may even be many wavelengths long , so
PROPAGATION TIME for the electric signal along the line has to be
taken into account;

## The elements in a low- frequency electric circuit can be

described by lumped parameters so that currents flowing in lumped
circuit elements do not vary specially along the elements,and no
standing waves exist LUMPED-PARAMETER CIRCUIT;

## A transmission line,on the other hand can be considered as

a DISTRIBUTED-PARAMETER CIRCUIT which can be described
by the circuit parameters distributed throughout its length.Except
matched conditions,STANDING WAVES exist in a transmission
line.In otherwords, voltages and currents can vary in magnitude and
phase over the length of the transmission line DISTRIBUTED PARAMETER CIRCUIT;

## VOLTAGE AND CURRENT ON A TRANSMISSION-LINE

Equivalent circuits of differential length dz s of the twoconductor lossy and lossless transmission lines can be given by the
circuits in the Fig-2 and 3,respectively.

## A transmission line, in a differential length dz , can be described

by the following four parameters;
R , resistance per unit length in /m
L , inductance per unit length in H/m
G ,conductance per unit length in S/m
C ,capacitance per unit length in F/m

where R and L are the series elements, G and C are the shunt
elements.R and G equals to zero in an ideal (lossless) transmission
line as shown in Fig. 3.
If the quantities V(z,t) and V(z+dz,t) denote the instantenous
voltages at z and z+dz positions of the line respectively ; the relation
betweeen these instantenous voltages can be given as follows:

V ( z + dz , t ) = V ( z , t ) +

V
dz
z

(1)

## Similary , if the quantities I(z,t) and I(z+dz,t) denote the instantenous

currents at z and z+dz respectively ; the relation betweeen these
instantenous currents can be expressed as follows:

I ( z + dz ) = I ( z , t ) +

I
dz
z

(2)

## Applying the Kirschhoffs voltage law to the equivalent circuit of the

ideal (lossless) transmission line in Fig.3, we obtain ;

V ( z , t ) + Ldz

I ( z , t )
+ V ( z + dz , t ) = 0
t

## V(z + dz, t) V(z, t)

in the limit z

0,

(4)

equation(4) becomes

V (z, t)
I(z, t)
= L
t
z

(5)

## Similarly, applying theKirschhoffs current law to the ideal

transmission line in Figure-3,we have:

I(z, t ) + Cdz

V(z + dz, t )
+ I(z + dz, t ) = 0
t

(6)

I(z, t )
V (z, t )

(7)

## So equations ( 6) and ( 7) give the relations between voltage and

current at the instant t and on location z of an ideal transmision line.
VOLTAGE AND CURRENT WAVES ON

If the partial derivatives of the equations (5) and (7) with respect to
the time and space are taken respectively and then combined together
, one obtains ONE DIMENSIONAL CURRENT WAVE EQUATION:

where v =

(11)
(12)

## If the u(z,t) denotes the solution of the one dimensional wave

equation in (11) which can be either the voltage or current wave , so
general expression of the u(z,t) can be given as follows:
(13)

## So the voltage waves can be expressed as follows:

z
z
V(z,t)= V+f +(t ) + Vf (t + )
v

(14)

## In equation (14) , V + and V - denote amplitudes of the voltage waves

propagating with the phase velocity v in +z and z directions,
respectively.
Substituting (14) in the relations given by (5) and (7) , one can write
the following expressions for the current waves:

z

I(z,t)= I+f +(t ) If (t + )

## VOLTAGE AND CURRENT WAVES ON A SEMI-INFINITE

LOSSLESS TRANSMISSION LINE

## If there is no reflection wave,such as in the case of the semi-infinite

transmission line ,so the voltage and current waves have only single
component propagating in +z direction :

z
V + f + (t )
v
V+ +
z
I(z,t) =
f (t )
Zc
v

V(z,t) =

(19)

we have
(20)

## Vg (t) = V(0, t) + I(0, t) R g

Using

f + ( t ) = f + (0, t )

(21)

## Then the expression (20) becomes

Vg ( t ) = V + f + ( t ) +

So

V + f + (t)

V +f + (t ) =

V+
R g f + (t)

(23)

## So the voltage and current expressions at the t instant and on the z

location of the transmission line can be given as

V (z, t) =

## Using the equation (23), the equivalent circuit of a semi-infinite

transmision line at the z=0 location can be given as shown in
Figure 4.

Figure-4

## The input impedance of a semi-infinite transmission line at the z=0

position , is equal to the characteristic impedance of the line :

## Boundary conditions at the z=0 location are as follows:

V

, t)= VL = ILR

I( , t ) = I L

(27)

(28)

+
(1) If RL = Zc , V ( , t ) = V L = I ( , t )Z C is satisfied by only V ( , t)
and I + ( , t ) waves The energy carried by the incident wave is
completely absorbed by the load . V ( , t ) = 0

## ( 2 ) R L Z C in order that the boundary conditions given by (27) and

(28) to be satisfied the reflected wave components have to exist. Now
the generation of the reflected wave will be formulated in terms of the
source voltage waveform. Firstly the voltage wave incident across the
load can be expressed in terms of the the source voltage waveform as
i ( , t ) =

ZC

g t = V + g t
ZC + R g

( 29 )

## and the current through the load is given by

Ii ( , t) =

1
i ( , t)
ZC

( 30 )

Since there exists the only single wave component until the waves
come to the load , so we can express the reflected voltage wave
component as

r (z, t ) = V g t

(31)
z 2

r (z , t ) = V g t +

11

The reflected voltage and current waves of the load can be given as

r ( , t ) = V g t I r ( , t ) = V g t

ZC

(32)
The boundary condition is L = ( , t ) = I ( , t )R L and substituting
the incident and reflected wave expressions into the boundary
condition, we have

L (z, t ) =

(V + V )g t R L
ZC

L (z , t ) = ( V + + V ) g t

## If we make g(t) = 0 , at z = 0 and applying the Kirschhoff

Voltage and Current Laws, we obtain

series of the incident wave and its resulted reflected wave
components:

REFLECTION DIAGRAMS

## The preceding step-by-step construction and calculation

procedure of the voltage and current at a particular time and
location on a transmission line with an arbitrary resistive
termination tends to be tedious and difficult to visualize since one
has to consider so many reflected waves. In such cases the
graphical construction of a reflection diagram will be very helpful.
Firstly let us construct a voltage reflection diagram. A reflection
diagram plots the time elapsed after a change in circuit conditions
versus the distance z from the source end.
The voltage reflection diagram of the circuit in the Fig.1 is
given in the Fig.2.

It starts with a wave V1+ at t=0 travelling from the source end
(z=0) in the +z direction with a velocity u . This wave is
represented by the directed straight line marked V1+ from the
origin. This line has a positive slope equal to 1/u. When the V1+
wave reaches the load at z=l, a reflected wave V1-= LV1+ is created
if RL R0. The V1- wave travels in the z direction and is
represented by the directed line marked LV1+ with a negative
slope equal to 1/u.
The V1- wave returns to the source end at instant t=2T and
gives rise to another reflected wave V2+ = gV1- = gLV1+,
which is represented by a second directed line with a positive
slope. This process continues back and forth infinitely. The
voltage reflection diagram can be used conveniently to determine
the voltage distribution along the transmission line at a given
time as well as the variation of the voltage as a function of time at
an arbitrary point on the line.

16

## The voltage distribution along the line at t=t4 (3T<t4<4T).

1. Mark t4 on the vertical t-axis of the voltage reflection
diagram.
2. Draw a horizontal line from t4, intersecting the directed line
marked gL2V1+ at P4.(All directed lines above P4 are
irrelevant to our problem because they pertain to t>t4.)
3. Draw a vertical line through P4, intersecting the horizontal
z-axis at z1. In the range of 0<z<z1 , the voltage has a value
equal to V1=V1+(1+L+gL); and in the range of z1<z<l
the voltage is equal to V1++V1-+V2++V2=V1+(1+L+gL+gL2). So there is a voltage discontinuity
equal to gL2V1+ at z=z1 position.
4. The voltage distribution along the line at t=t4, V(z,t4), is then as
shown in that diagram plotted for RL=3R0 L=1/2 and Rg=2R0
g=1/3.

finding the variation of the voltage as the function of time at the point
z=z1.
17

## 1. Draw a vertical line at z1, intersecting the directed lines at points

P1,P2,P3,P4,P5, and so on.(There would be an infinite number of
such intersection points if RLR0 and RgR0,as there would be
an infinite number of directed lines if L0 and g0)
2. From these intersection points, draw horizontal lines intersecting
vertical t-axis at t1,t2,t3,t4,t5 and so on. These are the instants at
which a new voltage wave arrives and abruptly changes the
voltage at z=z1.
3. The graph of V(z1,t) is plotted in this diagram for L=1/2 and
g=1/3. When t goes to the infinity , the voltage at z1 (and at all
other points along the lossless line) will assume the value 3V0/5,
as given in equation:

V=V1++V1-+V2++V2-+V3++V 3-+
=V1+(1+L+gL+gL2+g2L2+g2L3+..)
=V1+[(1+gL+g2L2+.)+L(1+gL+g2L2+..)]

## Similar to the voltage reflection diagram in figure-2 a current

reflection diagram for the transmission line circuit of figure-1 can be
constructed. This is shown in figure-4.

difference between the voltage and current reflection diagrams is in
the negative sign associated with the current waves traveling in the z
direction on account of this equation:

## The current reflection diagram can be used to determine the current

distribution along the transmission line at a given time as well as the
variation of the current as a function of time at a particular point on
the line, following the same procedures outline previously for voltage.
For example we can determine the current at z=z1 by drawing a
vertical line z1 in figure-4,intersecting the directed lines at points
P1,P2,P3,P4 and so on, and by finding the corresponding times t1,t2,t3,t4
, and so on, as before. Figure-5 as a plot of I(z1,t)versus t, which
accompanies the V(z1,t) graph in figure-6.

## with successively smaller discontinuous jumps at t1,t2,t3,t4,etc. There

are two special cases.
1. When RL=R0 (matched load, L=0), the voltage and current
reflection diagrams will each have only a single directed line,
existing in the interval 0<t<T, irrespective of what Rg is.
2. When Rg=R0 (matched source g=0) and RLR0, the voltage
and current reflection diagrams will each have only two
directed lines, existing in the intervals 0<t<T and T<t<2T.
In both cases the determination of the transient behavior on the
transmission line is much simplified.

## Relations between V(z,t) ,V(z+dz,t) and I(z,t), I(z+dz,t) can be

written as follows:

i
dz,
z

(z + z; t) = (z, t) + dz
z

i(z + z; t) = i(z, t) +

(38)

21

## The Kirschhoffs voltage law can be applied to the equivalent circuit

of the Lossy transmission line :
i(z, t )
(z + z, t ) = 0

By dividing with z , we have
( z , t ) R zi ( z , t ) L z

## (39) and (40) are the general transmission line equations

SMITH CHART
Transmission-line calculations such as the determination of input
impedance, reflection coefficient and load impedance often involve
tedious manipulations of complex numbers. This tedium can be
alleviated by using a graphical methot of solution. The best known
and most widely used graphical chart is the Smith chart devised
by P.H. Smith in 1939. Smith chart is a graphical plot of normalized
resistance and reactance functions in the reflection -coefficient plane.
In order to understand how the Smith chart for a lossless transmission
line is constructed, let us examine the voltage reflection coefficient of

ZL R 0
= e jQr
ZL R 0

(133)

## Let the load impedance be normalized with respect to the

characteristic impedance of the line.

zL =

ZL RL
X
=
+ j L = r + jx
R0 R0
R0

(134)

## where and are the normalized resistance and normalized reactance

respectively. Equation (133) can be rewritten as

= r + ji =

zL 1
zL +1

(135)

where ,and are the real and imaginary parts of the voltage reflection
coefficient respectively. The inverse relation of Equation (135) is
jQr
1+ 1+ e
zL =
=
1 1 e jQr

(136)

or
62

r + jx =

(1+r ) + ji
(1r ) ji

(137)

## Multiplying both the numerator and the denumerator of Equation

(137) by the complex conjugate of the denumerator, and separating
the real and imaginary parts, we obtain

r=

1 r 2 i2

(138)

(1 r )2 + i2

and
x=

2i 2

(139)

(1 r )2 + i2

If equation (138) is plotted in the plane for a given value of, the
resulting graph is the locus for this. The locus can be recognized when
the equation is rearranged as
r

1+ r

i2

1
=

1+ r

(140)

## It is the equation for a circle having a radius of 1/(1+r) and centered at

(r/(1+r) ,0). Different values of r yield circles of different positions
in the reflection coefficient plane. A family of these circles are
shown in figure 1. Since only that part of graph lying within the unit
circle on the plane is meaningful; everything the outside can be
disregarded.

## Fig:1 Smith chart with the rectangular coordinates

Several salient properties of the r-circles are noted as follows:
1. The centers of all r-circles lie on the r axis.
2. The r = 0 circle, having a unity radius and centered at the origin,
is the largest.
3. The r-circles become progressively smaller as r increases from 0
toward ,
ending at the ( r = 1, i = 0) point.
4. All r-circles pass through the ( r = 1, i = 0) point.

## Similarly , (139) may be rearranged as

( r 1 ) 2 + ( i 1/x )2 = ( 1/x )2

(141)

64

This is the equation for a circles having radius 1/|x| and centered at
r = 1 and i = 1/x .
Different values of x yield circles of different radii with centers at
different position on the r = 1 line. A family of the portions
f x-circles lying inside the || = 1 boundary are shown in dashed lines
in Fig 1. The following is a list of several salient properties of the xcircles.
1. The centers of all x-circles lie on the r = 1 line: those for x > 0
( inductive reactance ) lie above the r axis and those for x< 0
( capacitive reactance ) lie below the r axis.
2. The x = o circle becomes the r axis.
3. The x-circles become progressively smaller as |x| increases from
0 toward , ending at the ( r = 1, i = 0) point.
4. All x-circles pass though the ( r = 1, i = 0) point.

## A smith chart is a chart of r- and x-circles in the r i plane

for || 1. It can be proved that the r- and x- circles are everywhere
orthogonal to one another. The intersection of an r- and an x-circles
defines a point that represents a normalized load impedance
zL = r + jx. The actual load impedance is ZL = R0 ( r + jx ). Since a
Smith chart plots the normalized impedance, it can be used for
calculations concerning a lossless transmission line with an arbitrary
characteristic impedance.
As an illustration, point P in Fig. 1. is the intersection of the
r = 1.7 circle and the x = 0.6 circle. Hence it represents
zL = 1.7 + j0.6. the point Psc at ( r = -1, i = 0) corresponds to
r =0 and x = 0 and, therefore, represent a short-circuit. The point Poc
at ( r = 1, i = 0) corresponds to an infinite impedance and represent
an open-circuit.
The Smith chart in Fig.1 marked with r and i rectangular
coordinates. The Smith chart can be marked with polar coordinates,
65

## such that every point in the - plane is specified by a magnitude ||

and a phase angle . This is illustrated in Fig 2, where several
||-circles are shown in dotted lines and some -angles are marked
around the || = 1 circle. The ||-circles are normally not shown on
commercially available Smith charts: but once the point representing a
certain zL = r +jx is located, it is a simple matter to draw a circle
centered at the origin thorough the point. The fractional distance from
the center to the point ( compared with the unity radius to the edge of
the chart) is equal to the magnitude || of the load reflection
coefficient; and the line to the point makes with the real axis is .

RL =

RO
S

(142)

## Each ||-circle intersects the real axis at two points. In Fig. 2 we

designate the point on positive-real axis (OPoc) as PM and the point on
the negative-real axis (OPsc) as Pm . Since x =0 along the real axis, PM
and Pm both represent situations with a purely resistive load, ZL = RL
. obviously RL> R0 at PM, where r > 1 : and RL< R0 at Pm, where
r < 1. We found that S = RL/R0 = r for RL> R0 . This relation
enables us to say immediately, without using Eq.(142) that the value
of the r-circle passing through the point PM is numerically equal to the
standing-wave ratio. Similarly, we conclude from Eq.(142) that the
value of the r-circle passing through the point Pm on the negative-real
axis is numerically equal to 1/S. For the zL = 1.7+ j0.6 point, marked
P in Fig. 2, we find || =1/3 and = 28o. at PM, r =S = 2.0 these
results can be verified analytically.

In summary, we note the following:.
1. All ||-circles are centered at the origin, and their radius vary
uniformly from 0 to 1.
2. The angle, measured from the positive real axis, of the line
drawn from the origin through the representing zL equals .
3. The value of the r-circle passing through the intersection of the
||-circle and the positive-real axis equals the standing-wave
ratio S.

## So far we have based the construction of the Smith chart on the

definition of the voltage reflection coefficient of the load
impedance. The input impedance looking toward the load at a
distance z from the load is the ratio of V(z) and I(z). We have,
by writing j for for a lossless line.

case of the former for z =0 ( = ) . The magnitude, || , of the
reflection coefficient and, therefore, the standing-wave ratio S, are not
changed by the additional line length z. thus just as we can use the
Smith chart to find || and for a given zL at the load, e can keep
|| constant and subtract (rotate in the clockwise direction) from
an angle equal to 2z = 4z/.

the inner scale is marked wavelength towards load in the
counterclockwise direction (decreasing z ). Figure 1.03 is a typical

appearance, but actually it consists merely of constant-r and constantx circles. We note that a change of half-a-wavelength in line length
(z = /2 ) corresponds to a 2(z ) = 2 change in . A
complete revolution around a ||-circle returns to the same point and
results in no change in impedance.
In the following we shall illustrate the use of the Smith chart for
solving some typical transmission-line problems by several examples.

IMPEDANCE MATCHING

## Impedance matching is one of the most important subjects of

transmission lines. If the characteristic impedance Zo of the line is
equal to the load impedance ZL, the reflection coefficient L=0, and
the standing wave ratio is unity. When this situation exists, the
characteristic impedance of the line and the load impedance are said to
be matched, that is, they are equal. In most transmission line
applications, it is desirable to match the load impedance to the
characteristic impedance of the line in order to reduce reflections
standing waves that jeopardize the power-handling capabilities of the
line and also distort the information transmitted. Impedance matching
is also desirable in order to drive a given load most efficiently (i.e. to
deliver maximum load ), although maximum efficiency also requires
matching the generator to the line at the source end. In the presence of
sensitive components (low-noise amplifiers), impedance matching
improves the signal-to-noise ratio of the system in other cases
generally reduces amplitude and phase errors.
The equivalent circuit is shown below:

77

P(z)= P+ ( 1- |(z)|2 )
1) g=0
2) L=0

Zg=Zo P+=Pmax
ZL=Zo PL=P+

## There are different methods of achieving impedance matching:

1-Matching using series or parallel lumped reactive elements
2-Single stub matching ( series or shunt )
3-Double stub matching
4-Triple stub matching
SINGLE STUB SERIES IMPEDANCE MATCHING:
At microwave frequencies, it is often impractical or inconvenient to
use lumped elements for impedance matching. Instead, we use a
common matching technique that uses single open or short-circuited
stubs connected either in series or in parallel. In practice, the shortcircuited stub is more commonly used for coaxial and wave-guide
applications because a short-circuited line is less-sensitive to external
influences (such as capacitive coupling and pick-up) and radiates less
than an open-circuited line segment. However, for microstrips and
striplines, open-circuited stubs are more common in practice because
they are easier to fabricate.
The principle of matching with stubs is similar to matching using
lumped reactive elements. The only difference is that the matching
impedance (Zs) is intruduced by using open or short-citcuited line
segments at appropriate length ( ).

78

## In the figure above we can see a short-circuited single stub series

empedance matching circuit. Here, we will find out appropriate and
d lengths that the input empedance of the matching circuit becomes
Zo (Zin=Zo).
As we study at normalized dimensions, following equations can be
found:
zin= Zin = Zin/Zo and zL=ZL
zin= (zL + j.tand) / (1+ j.zL.tand)= 1+ jXin
This is the input empedance that is observed from right side of the
stub!
Re{zin}=1 Im{zin}=Xin

## The equivalence of the matching circuit is like this:

jX
Zin
Zin

79

zin= zin + jx = 1 = 1+ j0
zin= 1+jXin + jx = 1 +j0
Xin + X = 0
X= - Xin
So, chosen and d lengths must supply these equations.
If tand=t, then

## zin= 1+ jXin= (r+j.t) / (1+j.r.t)

(1+ jXin). (1+j.r.t) = (r+j.t)
Imaginary and real parts of both sides will be equal:
1 Xin.r.t = r
j.(Xin + r.t ) = j.t

Xin = (1 r).t

## t= ( 1 r ) / (1 r).r.t t2 = tan2d= 1/r

tan2d = (1 cos2d) / cos2d = 1/r
By this equation, d can be found like this:
d = (/4) . arccos [(r 1) / (r +1)]
And can be found as below:
jXin = j cot

= (/2). Arctan (r /1 r)
80

## Then we look at the max. points of the wave:

rmax = VSWR = (1 |L| ) / (1 + |L| ) =R
So, new formulas of d and are:
d = (/4) . arccos [(VSWR 1) / (VSWR +1)] d = d + dmax
= (/2). Arctan (VSWR /1 VSWR)

GRAPHICAL SOLUTIONS:

## Impedance matching problems can be solved easily using the Smith

Chart. Lets look at an antenna matching example:
To consider stub matching it helps to have a practical example.
formed by an antenna which is being used away from its design
frequency. The method is not restricted to antenna loads.

For a 1 metre long dipole antenna at 120 MHz, the load impedance is
44.8 ohms - j 107 ohms. The normalised empedance is 0.597 - j 1.43
with respect to the 75 ohm coaxial line. We shall determine the
position and length of a series stub which will match this antenna to
the transmission line.
If we look at the SMITH Chart we find a circle of constant real
normalised impedance r=1 which goes through the open circuit point
and the centre of the chart. In our example in the next picture, this
circle is drawn in red. If you plot any arbitrary normalised impedance
81

from the centre of the SMITH chart, towards the generator (along the
green line in the example), you must cross the r=1 circle somewhere.
This transformation at constant radius represents motion along the
transmission line towards the generator. (One complete circuit of the
SMITH chart represents a travel of one half wavelength towards the
generator.) At this intersection point the generalised arbitrary load
impedance r + jx has transformed to (1+jx'), so, at least the real part
of the impedance equals the characteristic impedance of the line.
Matching has not yet been achieved because of the residual reactance
x' which must be tuned out with the stub. Note that x' is different from
x in general. For each transformation around the SMITH chart,
representing travel one half wavelength towards the transmitter, there
are two intersections with the r=1 circle. Stubs may be placed at either
of these points.
At the transformed (see figure 1 ) intersection point (red and green
circles) the line is cut and a pure reactance -jx' is added. This is done
by creating this reactance -jx' using a series-connected lossless stub.
Now, the total impedance looking into the sum of the line impedance
(which is 1+jx') and -jx' is therefore (1+jx') -jx' = 1 and the line is
matched.
Again, one looks at the SMITH chart and finds the outer circle where
the modulus of the reflection coefficient is unity. On this circle are the
SHORT and OPEN points, and all values of positive (top half of the
SMITH chart) and negative (bottom half of the SMITH chart)
reactance. The resistance is zero everywhere. It has to be zero, as a
lossless transmission line with load infinity ohms (open) or zero ohms
(short) has no mechanism for absorbing power. To generate a
specified reactance, start at a short circuit (or maybe an open circuit)
and follow the rim of the SMITH chart clockwise around towards the
generator until the desired reactance is obtained. Cut the stub this
number of wavelengths long.

82

FIG 1

In our example, the SMITH chart construction to find the stub length
is shown in the next picture.
From the blue arc in the previous picture we see that the reactance at
the r=1 intersection point is +j1.86, so to cancel this out we must add a
series stub having reactance -j1.86. In the next figure we plot the blue
arc -j1.86 and, starting from the short circuit (r = x = 0) we follow the
green line around a distance of 0.328 wavelengths clockwise towards
the generator, to generate this value of reactance. If we had started
from an open circuit we would only travel a distance (0.328 - 0.250) =

83

## 0.078 wavelengths to generate this reactance. This open circuit stub is

represented by the red arc.
The practical details of the series stub match are shown in third figure,
where we display the physical lengths in centimetres, assuming a
wave velocity on the coax (which we need to know to do this
calculation) of 2x10^8 metres per second. This data is supplied by the
cable manufacturer. The wave velocity and the frequency (120 MHz)
allows us to calculate the wavelength in metres, and thus we can
translate the "electrical lengths" from the SMITH chart into physical
lengths of line.

## THE ANALYSIS OF THE GENERAL CYLINDRICAL

the waveguide is characterized by , .

To analyze the general cylindrical transmission lines, first we
have to obtain e and h as the parameter of ez and hz .

e = g (ez , hz )
h = f (ez , hz )
Second we have to solve the Helmholtz equation in V domain to
obtain ez(x,y) and hz(x,y) and finally assign all the EM components in
V domain.
If we multiply Eq-2 by j a z vectorally, we obtain;

j [a z (a z t e z ) j a z (a z e)] = j ( j )a z

## According to these equations, we can seperate EM waves

propagating along z-direction in cylindrical transmission lines into
four groups:
1) TE (transverse electric) Waves : Ez = 0, Hz 0
2) TM (transverse magnetic) Waves : Hz = 0, Ez 0
3) TEM (transverse electromagnetic) Waves : Hz = 0, Ez

(4)

## TE waves are sometimes called H-waves and TM waves are

sometimes called E-waves, where the E-wave and H-wave notation
refers to the field that has a z-component. It is important to realize that
TE and TM modes are independent solutions, i.e., they independently
satisfy Eq (4) and the boundary conditions at the walls. (A solution
where both Ez 0 and Bz 0 would not be an additional independent
solution, but rather, if it existed it could be constructed from a
superposition of degenerate TE and TM modes.However as we shall
now see, the fields for TE and TM modes satisfy different boundary
conditions. Consequently, they will not be degenerate.)
For TM waves, the boundary condition that the tangential
component of E vanishes at the walls means that Ez vanishes at the
walls. This single BC uniquelydetermines the solution of Eq (4) for
TM waves. Therefore, it is unnecessary in the case of TM waves to
impose the other boundary condition at the walls, namely, that the
88

## normal component of the magnetic field ( en Bt in this case) vanishes

there. The lattercondition must be automatically contained in Eq (3)
for Bt when it is applied to TM waves by setting Bz = 0 in the RHS of
that equation. To see this, note that the only component of t Ez that is
relevant for finding the normal component of Bt from Eq (3) is the
gradient of Ez with respect to the coordinate along the boundary, and
this vanishes since Ez is constant there (actually, Ez = 0 at the walls).
For TE waves there is no Ez , so to solve Eq (4) we use the BC
that the normal component of B vanishes at the walls. The latter BC
turns out to be equivalent to the condition that the normal derivative of
Bz vanishes at the walls. To see this, calculate en Bt using Eq (3) for Bt
. Noting that Ez = 0 for TE waves, we find that en Bt is proportional to
n t Bz , which is identical to the normal derivative Bz/ n. Thus Bz/
n vanishes at the walls for a TE wave. No other boundary condition
is needed to obtain a unique solution of Eq (4) for TE waves.
Therefore, the other boundary condition, namely that the tangential
component of Et vanishes at the walls, must be 6 automatically
satisfied by this solution for TE waves. (This is easily shown by an
argument analogous to that given in the previous paragraph for the
case of TM waves.)

CIRCULAR WAVEGUIDE

## This figure illustrates a cylindrical wave guide with a circular cross

section of radius r. In view of the cylindrical geometry involved,
cylindrical coordinates are most appropriate for the analysis to be
108

carried out. Since the general properties of the modes that may exist
are similar to those for the rectangular guide.

EXAMPLE:
(a) f=6 GHz , 500 kW continuous wave power l=30 feet, choose a
(b) Order the lowest five cutoff frequencies,
(c) Find out the operation bandwidth for the TE11 mode,
(d) Find out the loss,
(e) Find out the maximum wave for electrical field strength And
compare it with break down value for the dry air,
(f) If you insert a Teflon disk in the wave guide , in order to have
it as invisible what should its thickness be?
SOLUTION:
