This rigourous treatment of transmission lines presents all the essential concepts in a clear and straightforward manner. Key principles are demonstrated by numerous practical worked examples and illustrations, and complex mathematics is avoided throughout. Early chapters cover pulse propagation, sinusoidal waves and coupled lines, all set within the context of a simple lossless equivalent circuit. Later chapters then develop this basic model by demonstrating the derivation of circuit parameters, and the use of Maxwell's equations to extend this theory to major transmission lines. Finally, a discussion of photonic concepts and properties provides valuable insights into the fundamental physics underpinning transmission lines. Covering DC to optical frequencies, this accessible text is an invaluable resource for students, researchers and professionals in electrical, RF and microwave engineering.Read more
- Encourages the use of quick and practical 'back-of-the-envelope' shortcuts for the solution of many common problems in the study of transmission lines
- Provides exact solutions to many simple problems in the study of transmission lines, which can then be used to verify more complex computer models
- Includes discussion of low-frequency photons, solutions using plane waves, and other hot topics in transmission line theory
