Abstract : A method for determining the electrical degree distances between tap points on a slotted line with the attenuation of the line taken into account is developed. Formulas are also developed, taking into account the attenuation of the line, for the determination of the parameters used in the calculation of the impedance of a given load. An analysis using the voltage values at three tap points on the line is developed for the parameters V sub 1, V sub 2, their variations and for the impedance. A separate analysis using the voltage values at six tap points is developed for the variation. (Author)
