EC1305 TRANSMISSION LINES AND WAVEGUIDES
To lay a strong foundation on the theory of transmission lines and wave guides by highlighting their applications.
- To become familiar with propagation of signals through lines
- Understand signal propagation at Radio frequencies
- Understand radio propagation in guided systems
- To become familiar with resonators
UNIT I TRANSMISSION LINE THEORY 9
Different types of transmission lines – Definition of Characteristic impedance – The transmission line as a cascade of T-Sections - Definition of Propagation Constant.
General Solution of the transmission line – The two standard forms for voltage and current of a line terminated by an impedance – physical significance of the equation and the infinite line – The two standard forms for the input impedance of a transmission line terminated by an impedance – meaning of reflection coefficient – wavelength and velocity of propagation.
Waveform distortion – distortion less transmission line – The telephone cable – Inductance loading of telephone cables.
Input impedance of lossless lines – reflection on a line not terminated by Zo - Transfer impedance – reflection factor and reflection loss – T and ∏ Section equivalent to lines.
UNIT II THE LINE AT RADIO FREQUENCIES 9
Standing waves and standing wave ratio on a line – One eighth wave line – The quarter wave line and impedance matching – the half wave line.
The circle diagram for the dissipationless line – The Smith Chart – Application of the Smith Chart – Conversion from impedance to reflection coefficient and vice-versa. Impedance to Admittance conversion and viceversa – Input impedance of a lossless line terminated by an impedance – single stub matching and double stub matching.
UNIT III GUIDED WAVES 8
Waves between parallel planes of perfect conductors – Transverse electric and transverse magnetic waves – characteristics of TE and TM Waves – Transverse Electromagnetic waves – Velocities of propagation – component uniform plane waves between parallel planes – Attenuation of TE and TM waves in parallel plane guides – Wave impedances.
UNIT IV RECTANGULAR WAVEGUIDES 9
Transverse Magnetic Waves in Rectangular Wave guides – Transverse Electric Waves in Rectangular Waveguides – characteristic of TE and TM Waves – Cutoff wavelength and phase velocity – Impossibility of TEM waves in waveguides – Dominant mode in rectangular waveguide – Attenuation of TE and TM modes in rectangular waveguides – Wave impedances – characteristic impedance – Excitation of modes.
UNIT V CIRCULAR WAVE GUIDES AND RESONATORS 10
Bessel functions – Solution of field equations in cylindrical co-ordinates – TM and TE waves in circular guides – wave impedances and characteristic impedance – Dominant mode in circular waveguide – excitation of modes – Microwave cavities, Rectangular cavity resonators, circular cavity resonator, semicircular cavity resonator, Q factor of a cavity resonator for TE101 mode.
