Modal Cross Power in Quasi-TEM Transmission Lines

Published

Author(s)

Dylan F. Williams, F. Olyslager

Abstract

This paper examines modal cross power in electromagnetic transmission lines. It shows that the cross powers of nearly degenerate modes may be large in quasi-TEM multiconductor transmission lines typical of modern electronic circuits at moderate and low microwave frequencies. The paper develops simple expressions to estimate the magnitude of these cross powers from the "power-normalized" conductor impedance and admittance matrices of the lines.
