Unformatted text preview: EE161 Electromagnetic Waves Spring, 2010 Prof. Y. Ethan Wang Electrical Engineering Dept. UCLA Lesson 14 Waveguide Loss Transmission Line Resonator Rectangular Waveguide Cavity Waveguide Excitation Current Flow in Good Conductor s DC current area A l area A w w l h High Frequency current h w l A l R = = 1 1 Current flows inside the conductor uniformly. The resistance of the conductor is given by Ohms law, Due to the skin effect, current flows within a very thin layer of conductor close to the surface. The resistance of the conductor is thus given by, w l w l A l R s s 1 1 ' 1 = = = s R f R s s = = 1 Surface impedance is thus defined as, f s 1 = Waveguide Loss In general, power dissipation in a non-ideal waveguide may be attributed to both conductor loss and dielectric loss 2 10 2 1 = = e P P e P P P l l 10 2 P P l = In a lossy waveguide, as power decays according to the factor z e 2 Define the power dissipated per unit length in waveguide as P l and the incident power as P , the ratio between the power observed at the unit length away and the original incident power is 2 The attenuation constant can thus be determined by when loss is small d c ld lc P P P + = + = 10 2 conductor loss dielectric loss attenuation constant due to conductor loss attenuation constant due to dielectric loss Conductor Loss = C s s l dl J R P 2 2 In general, conductor loss per unit length is given by: surface impedance surface current density...
