- 7.3: Attenuation in Coaxial Cable
- In this section, we consider the issue of attenuation in coaxial transmission line.
- 7.4: Power Handling Capability of Coaxial Cable
- The term “power handling” refers to maximum power that can be safely transferred by a transmission line. This power is limited because when the electric field becomes too large, dielectric breakdown and arcing may occur. This may result in damage to the line and connected devices, and so must be avoided.
