39 Lossy lines Δ z C z z + Δ z Δ z L + - Δ z C z z + Δ z V ( z ) I ( z ) Δ z L + - I ( z + Δ z ) Δ z R Δ z G IDEAL LOSSLESS T.L.: REALISTIC LOSSY T.L.: I ( z + Δ z ) I ( z ) V ( z ) Lossless TL’s we have been studying so far are idealizations of real TL’s which are invariably lossy . Here, we are making reference to Ohmic energy losses in the conducting wires of the TL, as well as to losses in the imperfect dielectric separating the two conductors. The e ff ect of wire losses in TL’s is modelled by adding a Δ z R resis- tance in series with Δ z L inductor in the equivalent circuit model of an infinitesimal ( Δ z λ ) TL section as shown in the margin. In addition, a shunt conductance Δ z G in parallel with capacitance Δ z C accounts in the lossy model for dielectric losses. Using perturbation theory, it can be shown that for a coax of inner and outer radii a and b , R = πσ ( 1 a + 1 b ) , while for a parallel-plate transmis- sion line of width W , R = 4 π W πσ , in terms of conductivity σ and per- meability μ of the T.L. conductors.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
