Transmission line/reflection coefficient question

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

reflection coefficient gamma = ZL-Z0/ZL+Z0.

My question is can you calculate the reflection coefficients when ZL has a real and imaginary?Lets say that Z0=50 ohms and ZL = 125 +j40.

All my example in books show ZL and Z0 being real only. Well how do you determine reflection coefficients when the ZL ha real and imaginary and Z0 is 50 ohms?

The formula still works. You get complex reflection coefficients indicating the presence of inductive (+imaginary) or capacitive (-imaginary) reactance.
