Power in Circuits
Consider the input impedance of a transmission line circuit, with an
applied voltage v(t) inducing an input current i(t).
For sinusoidal excitation, we can write
v(t ) V0 cos(t )
i(t
Standing Wave Patterns
In practical applications it is very convenient to plot the magnitude
of phasor voltage and phasor current along the transmission line.
These are the standing wave patterns:
The
Smith Chart
The Smith chart is one of the most useful graphical tools for high
frequency circuit applications. The chart provides a clever way to
visualize complex functions and it continues to endure
Electromagnetic Waves
For fast-varying phenomena, the displacement current cannot be
neglected, and the full set of Maxwells equations must be used
The two curl equations are analogous to the coupled
