Power Handling - RF Connectors/ Cables - 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.
Post subject: Power Handling - RF Connectors/ Cables

I am trying to learn the basics of power handling (average/ peak power calculations, dielectric withstanding voltage, corona voltage, etc) that I have to apply for RF connectors and cables.
Can anyone please direct to me some books or websites that can give me detailed information on the same?
Thanks in advance!

Johnson Components has a nice document that covers a lot of the ground you are looking for:
http://www.johnsoncomponents.com/webapp ... Fguide.pdf
Time Microwave has good info in the back of their cable catalog. This page has all the different sections available separately, because the entire catalog is 27 MB (look near the bottom of the page starting at around catalog page 63):
That should get you started. Beyond that, check cable and connector vendor websites (http://www.rfcafe.com/vendors/vendor-links.htm), and even call to talk to applications engineers to get specific questions answered.
