Analytical studies on waves in nonlinear transmission line media

Zehra Pinar


In this study, we introduce the lossy nonlinear transmission line equation, which is the dissipative-dispersive equation and an important problem of electrical transmission lines. For the engineers and physicist, the equation and its exact solutions are important so to obtain the exact solutions; one of the modifications of auxiliary equation method based on Chebyshev differential equation is studied. The results are discussed and given in details. Recently, the studies of lossy transmission line equation have been challenging, thus, it is believed that the proposed solutions will be key part of further studies for waves in nonlinear transmission line media, which has mixed dissipative-dispersive behavior.
