What did we just do? From the assumption of harmonic time dependence, and application of elementary circuit theory for a structure with distributed R,L,G, and C We have shown that the general solution for time varying currents and voltages on transmission lines are attenuated sinusoidal waves along the length of this structure! The time harmonic condition is very general and corresponds simply to harmonic forcing at one end Characteristic impedance Z o Given the traveling wave equations: ( , ) cos cos v z t V e t z V e t z     ( , ) cos cos i z t I e t z I e t z     Characteristic impedance Z o is the ratio of voltage to current wave amplitudes in one direction, or o VV Z II    Note the sign change for the backward wave. This actually comes out of the calculation. It shows that for the backward wave the current is flowing in the “wrong” direction. ...
