Finding the Impedance of a Coaxial Cable

Application ID: 12351

The coaxial cable (coax) is one of the most ubiquitous transmission line structures. It is composed of a central circular conductor, surrounded by an annular dielectric, and shielded by an outer conductor. This model computes the electric and magnetic field distribution inside of the coaxial cable, analyzes the impedance, and compares the result with the analytic solution.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
