Homework Help: Transmission lines parallel fault

  1. May 11, 2013 #1
    I am trying to draw the bounce diagram for the trans line in the picture attached to my thread.

    Sorry wont let me upload.....

    I am not sure what to do here because I have never seen anything like it before. It loos like there is no Zo for the branch involving the load resistance of the fault.

    I need to find the times taken for the wave to arrive at the load resistor and for the primary reflection to arrive at the source.
    Then the magnitude of the primary reflected wave, then the voltage V1.

    Any ideas welcome! If you know anything I could read up on, then that would be helful too. Thanks :).
