1 ECE 303 – Fall 2006 – Farhan Rana – Cornell University Lecture 20 Transmission Lines: The Basics In this lecture you will learn: • Transmission lines • Different types of transmission line structures • Transmission line equations • Power flow in transmission lines • Appendix ECE 303 – Fall 2006 – Farhan Rana – Cornell University Guided Waves • So far in the course you have been dealing with waves that propagated in infinite size media • For many applications it is desirable to have electromagnetic energy be guided in much the same way as water flow is guided by having it flow in pipes Transmission lines are the simplest structures that guide electromagnetic waves Transmission line: In this course a transmission line would be any two arbitrary shaped metal conductors that are very long and uniform in at least one dimension x y A transmission line made up of two metal conductors that are very long and uniform in the z -direction
