**PART – A**

1 a. Obtain the required condition for a transmission line to have neither frequency nor delay distortion.

b. A generator of 1-0 volt, 1kHz supplies power to 100 km open wire line terminated in Zo and having following parameters. R = 10.4 ohms / km ; L = 0.00367 henry per km ; G-0.8xl0′^{6}mhosperkm C = 0.00835 |iF per km.

Find, characteristic impedance, Propagation constant, wavelength of the

propagating wave, sending end current.

2 a. Comment with Justification on the correctness of the statement – “Standard reference antenna for the directive gain is the istropic antenna”.

b. Comment with justification on the correctness of the statement – “A quarter wave section of the line may be thought of as a transformer to match a load and to a source impedance”.

c. A line of characteristic impedance 200 ohms is terminated in a load of 80 – J100 ohms. Determine the location and length of the single stub matching section. The characteristic impedance of stub is same as that of line.
