Unformatted text preview: 3 megawatts, with a characteristic impedance of 500 Ω (two-wire line). What is the peak voltage on the line after the break occurs? Problem P6.2 A very long transmission line with characteristic impedance Z 0 and wave velocity v = c has a shunt resistor of unknown vlue R L at an unknown location z = ± . A measurement of the voltage at the input, V ( t ), with a unit step generator applied to the line, yields the result shown in Fig. 2. ’ V + V + Z o V _ + u(t) Z o , v − V (t) R L ∞ z = 0 ² z = ± z V (t) 10 -8 sec t Fig. 2 (a) What is ± ?

    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.
