This lecture explores the fundamental parameters of a transmission line, introducing the telegrapher’s equations.
I had fantastic electrical engineering teachers at Virginia Tech (my alma mater for BSEE, MSEE, and PhD). However, I consciously constructed this Georgia Tech lecture thinking, “This is the way I wish I had been taught Phasors.”
Curious what the crowds watch over on YouTube? Me neither. I can share what the average profdurgin watcher looks at over on the group’s EM channel, though. Below is a rank-ordered list of the top 25 videos by watch time among the EM lectures, based on lifetime video statistics. [Read more…] about What are (EM) People Watching on YouTube?
Below is the first time-domain transmission line “sequencer problem” that appeared in 2003 to test student’s knowledge of terminations, charged lines, reactive elements, cascades, and various other circuit behaviors. Believed (incorrectly) by many students to have been invented by Prof. Durgin specifically for the sadistic torture of Georgia Tech ECE 3025 students, these problems do nicely encapsulate two weeks of time-domain transmission line material in one single exercise. If you need some help understanding the concept, this lengthy video sample problem might make a good starting point.
