Abstract:
This paper presents the analysis of linear tapered waveguide. Voltage-standing-wave-ratio (VSWR) is obtained from transmission matrix of the taper waveguide. Taper section is divided into number of section having uniform length. Transmission matrix of taper waveguide is found by multiplication of transmission matrix of each section. Transmission matrix of each section is obtained as the product of three matrices. One is of the initial length of transmission line,second one is due to discontinuity and third one is of the final length of transmission line. Transmission matrix of discontinuity is obtained by two methods. One is by equivalent circuit of step discontinuity and another is by moment method. The results are seen to be in good agreement with [1,2] and [3].
