Sketching the Source Voltage

  1. Oct 10, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Sketch the source voltage from 0 < t < 7T with a source resistance of 0.5*Z_C and a load resistance of 2*Z_C and a signal generator that delivers a 1-V triangular pulse train down a lossless coaxial line. See image attached

    2. Relevant equations

    Equations to find reflection coefficients and initial voltage.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I calculated the load reflection and source reflection coefficients to be 1/3 and -1/3, respectively. I also calculated the initial voltage to be Z_C/(Z_C + R_S)*V_S = 0.667 V. I'm a bit stuck on where to go from here though. Any hints would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance
