Abstract:

This report presents the results of an experimental investigation of pulse propagation on cross-sectional inhomogeneous multiconductor cable systems. Time domain and frequency domain measurement techniques are described and verified. The modal analysis of a 5-wire branched cable and the common mode analysis of a simple cable network are given in the time domain and verified experimentally. Some practical applications of the results of this study to measurements of multiconductor transmission line characteristics in situ are discussed.
