Transmission Line theory, please help! - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

I'm trying to learn transmission line theory on my own, a difficult task, as I'm finding out. Keep in mind, our sub sea control lines are balanced tranmission lines, and have lengths in excess of 10km. Now, first can anybody explain the losses, or attenuation of these lines? Is it just a function of the series resistance per unit length? Or, is it a function of frequency, impedance? Our test frequencies are LOW, I mean in the range of 1 to 3 kHz. Does surface roughness play a part in this? Secondly, I have no way to measure the reflection coefficient or SWR caused by the Well load on the opposite end. Last, I am trying to calculate the NVP for a specific conductor in which I know the Z,C,L values, is there an easy way to perform this? How does the formula for propagation constant play here; y=a+jB. y = prop constant, a = attenuation, and jB for phase shift.

I have some very good training materials in PDF format if you are interested.
