Transmission Line theory Common types of transmission lines used in circuits, lumped circuit model for transmission line and formal solutions. Characteristic impedance, propagation constant, attenuation and phase constants . Open circuited and short circuited lines. Reflection of line not terminated in Z0- Reflection coefficient- standing wave ratio- reflection factor return loss. Generator and mismatches- distortion in transmission lines. Planar transmission lines Microstrip lines- Characteristic impedance-Losses in microstrip lines Q-factor of microstrip line. Parallel strip lines- distributed parameters- characteristic impedance- losses Coplanar strip line- shielded strip linetapered strip line-microstrip resonator CAT cable Matching and Measurement Transmission line resonator- impedance matching-single and double stub. Narrowband and broadband matching- quarter wave transformer. Measurement of VSWR, impedance, insertion loss and attenuation using Smith chart Introduction to EMI Electromagnetic noise sources - Coupling of transmission lines to external EM fields - Coupling between lines - Grounding and shielding methods. Waveguides General solutions for TEM, TE and TM waves- parallel plate waveguide Rectangular waveguide -TE, TM modes, power transmission, losses in rectangular waveguide-excitation of modes.
