Abstract:

Voltage waveforms in a 34-section no -linear li e using r v rse bias junction diodes as nonlinear shunt capacitor elements are compared with waveforms calculated using the solution obtained for the uniform, lossless, distributed line. The comparison was in good agreement outside of regions where the mathema ical solution is multivalued. With fast rising waveforms, in which the mathematical solution becomes multivalued in a short distance, the del y i the li e i observed to be reduced relative to a signal having a slower rise time. The step response to a lossless L-Cv circuit in which Cv has the form of a reverse bias step-junction diode is presented. From the behaviour of the L-Cv circuit, it is deduced that the delay time of the wavefront in a lumped nonlinear line made up of L-Cv sections would be a decreasing function of the amplitude of an input step function.
