Abstract

The transmission line of a finite length above a lossy ground is analyzed applying the theory of wire antennas. The boundary element procedure is used for solving the electric field integral equation (EFIE) and the induced current along the line due to the incident plane wave excitation is obtained. Utilizing the weak formulation of the problem and conveniently performing the integration by parts a scattered voltage along the line is calculated by integrating the electric field from the imperfect ground plane to the conducting wire surface. 1 Introduction The calculation of the currents and voltages induced on a horizontal wire above a real ground is very important in EMC applications such as surface wave propagation, oceanography, geosounding or transmi
