Abstract:

A program was initiated to design, construct, and test an optimum high power transmission line with associated parts for S-band frequencies and toARRIVE AT RECOMMENDATIONS FOR ULTRA HIGH POWER TRANSMISSION LINES. The design of high power transmission lines for S-band frequencies is treated. The analysis, supported by experimental mea urements, emphasizes the power limitations imposed by waveguide temperature rise where only convection and radiation are the cooling processes. Oversized rectangular waveguide with the addition of practical sized cooling fins can meet the requirements of the hardware phase of the program. Further extension of the analysis, including rectangular as well as circular waveguide, suggests that even ultra high power transmission may be feasible in oversized waveguide without resorting to forced cooling techniques.
