Chapter 13 Summary: Resistance
Chapter 13 explains the definition of resistance, the third parasitic element that can affect transmission lines. The relationship between resistance, current and voltage as defined in Ohm’s Law is examined. Readers will find out how energy from an electromagnetic field is absorbed or dissipated and lost in the form of heat as current flows through a resistance. Skin effect loss is also examined in detail, including the need for the proper measurement of skin effect loss with analysis tools that account for the geometry and length of the transmission line.
