Abstract

A general method is proposed to analyze periodic or aperiodic Coupled Nonuniform Transmission Lines (CNTLs). In this method, the per-unit-length matrices are expanded in the Fourier series. Then, the eigenvalues of periodic CNTLs and so the S parameters of aperiodic CNTLs are obtained. The validity of the method is studied using a comprehensive example.
