**Transmission Line Input Impedance

Consider a lossless line, length , terminated with a load ZL.

z = −

z = 0

Let’s determine the input impedance of this line! Q: Just what do you mean by input impedance? A: The input impedance is simply the line impedance seen at the beginning ( z = − ) of the transmission line, i.e.:

Zin = Z ( z = − ) =

V (z = − ) I (z = − )

Note Zin equal to neither the load impedance ZL nor the characteristic impedance Z0 !

such that Z L = 0 . the input impedance is inversely proportional to the load impedance. The input impedance at beginning of the λ 4 transmission line is therefore: Zin (Z ) = ZL 0 2 (Z ) = 0 2 0 =∞ line transforms a short-circuit into an open-circuit—and vice versa! Zin = ∞ !
