Abstract : A systematic study is presented of the network properties of distributed RC networks having one dimensional spatial variation and arbitrary geometric shapes. With emphasis on the analysis, analytic and approximation techniques are considered which can be used to obtain the two-port immittance parameters of the distributed RC networks. Various methods are introduced for finding the pole-zero patterns of the immittance parameters. Approximation techniques are also included to find the effective dominant zero and the excess phase, within a specified error, of network functions having an infinite number of roots on the negative real axis. It is further shown how such approximations can be utilized to obtain simply the key features of the steady state and the transient response of distributed RC networks. Examples of the various methods are given so as to make the techniques more palatable for circuit engineers. Extensive numerical tables are also presented to show the effectiveness of the various methods as well as to develop appreciation for the understanding and handling of distributed RC networks.
