Blumlein line, pulse generation, transient response, parallel-plate line
Computational analyses are performed on a parallel-plate Blumlein line with a nonstandard width of a dielectric as a way to mitigate against the dielectric breakdown. We report its effects on the electric field, propagation time of the transient effect, characteristic impedance of the line, and the output pulse.
