5. 30) since the distance should not be negative and we have used l = −z and tanh(−γ l) = − tanh(γ l). 33) This is a very useful equation. Special attention should be paid to the following cases: r Matched case: Z L = Z 0 Z in (l) = Z 0 , the input impedance is the same as the characteristic impedance and is not a function of the length of the line. 34) The input impedance has no resistance, just reactance (capacitive for small l). r Short circuit: Z L = 0 Z in (l) = j Z 0 tan(βl) Again, the input impedance has no resistance, just reactance (inductive for small l).

B. e. 19 dB The return loss is slightly increased, as expected. 8. e. 47l dB. 9. 41) Obviously, the VSWR is just another measure of how well a transmission line is matched with its load. Unlike the reflection coefficient, the VSWR is a scalar and has no phase information. For a nonperfect transmission line, the VSWR is a function of the length of the line (l) as well as the load impedance and the characteristic impedance of the line. But for a lossless transmission line, the VSWR is the same at any reference point of the line.

B. e. 98 d B for l = 0 and λ/4, and actually any length of such a transmission line. 5: Reflection coefficient and return loss of a low-loss transmission line. 2 Np/m at 1 GHz. a. What is the voltage reflection coefficient for l = 0 and λ/4, respectively? b. Plot the return loss as a function of the line length. 5. 2 Np/m. 5 a. 1952 Z L + Z0 This means that not only the phase of the reflection coefficient but also the amplitude is changed when the length of the transmission line is increased by a quarter-wavelength.
