Various Types Of
Transmission Line

## As the name suggests, the transmision line is a structure which can

transport electrical energy from one point to another.

## At low frequencies, a transmission line consists of two linear conductors

separated by a distance. When an electrical source is applied between
the two conductors, the line gets energized and the electrical energy
flows along the length of the conductors.
A two-conductor transmission

Various Types Of
Transmission Line
Co-axial cable
Consists of a solid conducting rod surrounded by the two conductors. This line has
good isolation of the electrical energy and therfore has low Electromagnetic
Interference (EMI).

## Parallel wire transmission line

Consists of two parallel conducting rods. In this case the electrical energy is
distributed between and around the rods. Theoretically the electric and magnetic
fields extend over infinite distance though their strength reduces as the distance from
the line. Obviously this line has higher EMI.

Microstrip line
Consists of a dielectric substrate having ground plane on one side and a thin metallic
strip on the other side. The majority of the fields are confined in the dielectric
substrate between the strip and the ground plane. Some fringing field exist above the
substrate which decay rapidly as a function of height. This line is usually found in
printed circuit boards at high frequencies.

## Balanced and Un-balanced line

If the two conductors are symmetric around the ground, then the line is called the
balanced line, otherwise the line is an un-balanced line. Transmission lines (a), (c)
and (d) are un-balanced line, whereas the line (b) is a balanced line.

Coaxial Cable Applications
In practice, it is usually unnecessary to
find the impedance of coaxial cable since
the impedance is part of the cable

standard impedances for coaxial cable

Transit Time Effect
,

It is important to note that No Signal can travel with infinite velocity. That is to say that if a
voltage or current changes at some location, its effect cannot be felt instantaneously at
some other location. There is a finite delay between the 'cause' and the effect. This is
called the ' Transit Time' effect.
Consider the two-conductor line which is connected to a sinusoidal signal generator of
frequency at one end and a load impedance at the other end. Due to the transit time effect
the voltage applied at AA' will not appear instantaneously at BB'.
Let the signal travel with velocity along the line. Then the Transit time

## , l= length of the line.

At some instant let the voltage at AA' beVp . Then Vp will appear at BB' only after tr .

of Engg, Sangli
Transit Time Effect
Ideally the transit time effect should be included in analysis of all electrical
circuits. However if the time period of the signal is much larger than
the transit time, we may ignore the effect of transmit time. That is, the transit
time effect can be neglected if

Transit time effect becomes important when the length of the line becomes
comparable to the wavelength. As the frequency increases, the wavelength
reduces, and the transit time effect becomes more and more important.

Distributed Circuit Elements

The distributed parameters can be defined per unit length of the line.
R = Resistance of both conductors together for unit length of the line (ohms/m)
L = Inductance (self and mutual) for both conductors together for unit length of the line (Henery/m)
C = Capacitance between two conductors for unit length of the line (Farad/m)

Primary line constant
Resistance( R):
Transmission lines are made up of the conducting wires. These are not
pure conductors and have some resistance per unit length (km or mile) depending
on type of conductor used. Hence, resistance does exist throughout the wire.
Inductance (L):
A wire carrying current gives rise to inductance. Since current is present in
the line, the conductor is surrounded and linked by magnetic flux and this
phenomenon demonstrates its effect in the distributed inductance all along the
lines.
Capacitance (C):
Capacitance is formed when two conducting wires are separated by a
dielectric material in between them. Transmission lines also have two current
carrying conductors and dielectric between them. The dielectric may be air (e.g.
open wire) or core material or dielectric substrate; thus, the distributed capacitance
exists throughout the wire.
Conductance (G):
The dielectric or insulator of the transmission line may not be perfect.
Because of leaky capacitance, a leakage current flows and leakage conductance
(G) exists between the conductor throughout its length.

Secondary Line Constant
The characteristic impedance (Z0),
propagation constant ( ), attenuation
constant ( ) and phase constant () are
called as Secondary line constants.
These are again expressed per unit length
of the fine. These constants vary with
frequency and also depend on primary
line constants. But primary line constants
are independent of frequency.

Open & Short Circuited Line
In transmission line there are two waves travelling in opposite direction on a
line between receiving and sending end. These two waves will be added when
are in phase and will cancel when out of phase on the line. The point where
these waves are added is called Antinodes while Nodes are the points on
the line where these waves cancel out. In a shorted end open-circuited line,
complete reflection occurs. This will result in a standing wave on the line.
(a) Open-circuited line :
When two points are open, then there exist a voltage between two points but
current will be zero. Thus, the impedance at open end will be infinite. At a /4
distance from open end, incident wave will be 90o earlier and the reflected wave
will be 90 later than the open end. Thus, two waves are 180 out of phase. At
this point, minima occurs while the maxima are produced at distance from the
open end. The current and voltage distribution along the line is shown in Fig.

## 09/21/17 Ruikar Sachin, Walchand College 46

of Engg, Sangli
Open & Short Circuited Line
When the two points are short circuited then the voltage between two
points is zero. But there will be maximum current between two points.
Thus, the impedance at the shorted end will be zero. When shorted the
voltage (VR) being zero, there will be no electric energy. But the
current (IR) being not zero, the magnetic energy (1/2 L12) will not be
zero. Because the electric and magnetic energy exist simultaneously
throughout the line, the redistribution of energy takes place at the
shorted end and the standing waves are produced.
The voltage and current distribution differs from open-circuited
case. The voltage and current positions are interchanged. That is with
shorted line, voltage goes through minima at even multiple of quarter
wavelength ( /4) distances from load end. The maxima occurs at odd
multiple of quarter wavelength ( /4) distances from load end. The

Consider a loss-less transmission line with characteristic impedanceZo . Let
the line be terminated in a complex load impedance Z=R+JX=Zo. Since
the load impedance is not equal to the characteristic impedance, there is
reflection on the line, and the voltage and the current on the line can be
given as

Since the difference of any complex number and its conjugate is in the

using Wave concept
The power delivered to the load can also be calculated using a different
approach and that is, the power given to the load is the difference of the
power carrried by the incident wave towards the load and the power carried
away by the reflected wave. Since the travelling waves always see the
characteristic impedance, the incident and reflected powers and

Voltage Standing Wave Ratio
The standing wave patterns provide the top envelopes that bound
the time-oscillations of voltage and current along the line. In other
words, the standing wave patterns provide the maximum values
that voltage and current can ever establish at each location of the
transmission line for given load and generator, due to the
interference of incident and refelected wave.

## The patterns present a succession of maxima and minima which

repeat in space with a period of length /2, due to constructive or
destructive interference between forward and reflected waves. The
patterns for a loss-less line are exactly periodic in space, repeating
with a /2 period.

Again, note that although we talk about maxima and minima of the
standing wave pattern we are always examining a maximum of
voltage or current that can be achieved at a transmission line
location during any period of oscillation.

pattern starts with a maximum at the load.
If the load is real and ZR < Z0 , the voltage standing wave
pattern starts with a minimum at the load.
If the load is complex and Im(ZR ) > 0 (inductive reactance),
the voltage standing wave pattern initially increases when
moving from load to generator and reaches a maximum first.
If the load is complex and Im(ZR ) < 0 (capacitive reactance),
