## TRAVELLING-WAVE MODELLING OF UNIFORM MULTI-CONDUCTOR TRANSMISSION LINE NETWORKS --- PART I: ANALYTICAL DERIVATIONBy I. C. Papaleonidopoulos, N. J. Theodorou, and C. N. Capsalis
Abstract:
In Part I of this work, analysis of uniform multi-conductor transmission line networks is performed on travelling-wave basis, via "quasi-TEM" approach. Narrowband interpretation of the modal theory in the time domain and quantification of the multiple reflections effect are both included. Theoretical demonstration and analytical formulation are provided, along with guidelines towards computational implementation. Any network formed of lossy, diagonalisable uniform multi-conductor transmission lines of either distinct or degenerate eigenvalues is covered. This work applies especially in the field of Power-Line Communications, as High-Frequency transmission over the power electric network is dominated by multipath propagation.
