Abstract

Plane wave coupling to finite length cables buried in a lossy ground D. Poljak', I. Gizdic^ and V. Roje* ^Department of Electronics, University of Split, Split, Croatia ^Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Split, Split, Croatia Abstract The cable of a finite length below the ground surface is analyzed applying the scattering theory. The problem is formulated via the electric field integral equation (EFEE) for thin wires. The EFIE is solved by the Galerkin-Bubnov boundary element procedure and the current induced along the buried cable due to the transmitted plane wave excitation is obtained. 1 Introduction Electromagnetic Coupling to cables buried in a lossy ground is one of the major causes of malfunction, or even destruction of telecommunication cable systems (equipment). This paper deals with the current induced in a finite length bare cable buried in a lossy half-space, due to a plane wave excitation. It is worth emphasizing that the problem of plane wav
