Abstract: Loss exponential line used as impedance transformer
is considered in this paper. The influence of frequency and thermal
losses at the transmission line on the character-istics of exponential
transmission line is examined. The value of input impedance trans-
formed through nonuniform transmis-sion line with exponential taper
is presented. Dependence of input impedance at arbitrary distance
along the line, its deviation from exponential function for different
frequencies and for different taper ratio is observed. Standing wave
ratio versus frequency is calculated for different taper ratio and
the results are presented in the paper.


Keywords: input impedance, exponential transmission line, taper
ratio, standing wave ratio.

1. Introducere
Liniile de transport uniforme [1-2] i neuniform [3-7]
pot fi folosite impedane de adaptare. Liniile de transport
uniforme se comport ca impedane de adaptare depinznd
de frecven i lungimea liniei. Lucrarea [1] prezint o
analiz uor de neles i puin documentaie asupra liniei
de transport adaptate. Transformatoarele de frecven de la
radio constnd din linii de transport potrivite de lungime
egal i impedan caracteristic sunt prezentate n lucra-
rea [2]. Lucrarea [3] ofer soluii asupra ecuaiilor de form
nchis pentru valori ale impedanei complexe arbitrare
transformat printr-o linie de transport fr pierderi, neuni-
form de form exponenial, cos

i parabolic. Liniile
neuniforme au avantajul ajustrii impedanei mari cnd
sunt folosite ca impedane de adaptare i filtrrii pe lungimi
de band mari, cnd sunt folosite ca filtre [6-7].
n lucrare este prezentat forma nchis a impendanei
de intrare pentru linia de transport exponenial cu pierderi.
Se observ abaterea impedanei de intrare de-a lungul liniei
pentru diferite frecvene i pentru diferite forme ale raportu-
lui i lungime a liniei. Unele rezultate pentru liniile de trans-
port neuniforme cu pierderi exponeniale folosite ca impe-
dan de adaptare sunt deja prezentate n lucrrile [4] i [5].

1. Introduction
The uniform [1-2] and nonuniform transmission lines
[3-7] can be used as impedance transformers. Uniform
transmission lines act as impedance transformers depending
on the frequency and length of the line. The paper [1] presents
an easily understood analysis and some history of the trans-
mission line transformer. Radio frequency transformers
consisting of matched transmission lines of equal length and
characteristic impedance are presented in [2]. The paper [3]
gives solution of closed-form equation for value of arbitrary
complex impedance transformed through a length of lossless,
nonuniform transmission line with exponential, cosine-
squared and parabolic taper. The nonuniform lines have the
advantage of wide-band impedance matching when used as
impedance transformers and larger rejection bandwidths
when used as filters [6-7].
In this paper closed form of input impedance for loss
exponential transmission line is presented. Deviation of input
impedance along the line for different frequencies and for
different taper ratio and length of the line is observed. Some
results for nonuniform exponential loss transmission line used
as impedance transformer are already presented in papers
[4] and [5].

line

sidered. u

is described by Telegraph's equations.

conductors is considered. Resistance per unit length is
calculated as

If the input impedance is transformed from
( ) =100 0
C
Z
to output impedance of ( ) = 200 d Z
C
then taper ratio is
2 = P . Taper ratio is 3 P = for ( ) = 300 d Z
C
; 4 = P for
( ) = 400 d Z
C
and 5 = P for ( ) = 500 d Z
C
. These values
are usually used in practice.
Results for /2-transmission line are presented in Figs.
2-5. They show input impedances as the function of axial
coordinate for different taper ratio. At very high frequen-
cies (Fig. 5) input impedance along exponential line has
ideal exponential form, because losses are neglected.

tained results show that variation of impedance from the
exponential shape is greater at lower frequencies and for
greater taper ratio. The deviation decreases as the length of
transmission line increases. Fig. 9 presents standing wave

4. Concluzii
Se consider n aceast lucrare linia de transport expo-
nenial ca impedan adaptat pe un domeniu de frecven
mare. Analizele amnunite arat caracteristicile liniei de-
pinznd de frecven i de forma raportului. Variaia impe-
danei de-a lungul liniei de la funcia exponenial crete
pe msur ce frecvena descrete. Se poate concluziona c
la frecvene ridicate numrul pulsaiilor de la funcia expo-
nenial ale impedanei de intrare cresc, dar amplitudinile
lor descresc. Pentru frecvene foarte ridicate se obine
aproape doar dependena ideal exponenial. Linia de
transport se comport ca o impedan excelent de adaptare
pentru un domeniu larg de frecvene, cu excepia frecvenelor
foarte joase.

4. Conclusion
The exponential transmission line as impedance trans-
former in large frequency range is considered in this paper.
Detailed analysis shows that line characteristics depend on
frequency and on taper ratio. Impedance variation along the
line from the exponential function increases as frequency
decreases. It can be concluded that at higher frequencies the
number of ripples from the exponential function of the input
impedance increases but their magnitudes decrease. For very
high frequency almost ideal exponential dependence is
obtained. The transmission line acts as an excellent impedance
transformer for a large frequency range, except at very low
frequencies.
