D. C. Power Distribution System

This D.C. power distribution system employs strip transmission lines for transmitting energy from a source to a plurality of circuits or components.

The distribution system comprises a ground plane 10 which is L-shaped and fixed at its base to a ground lead 11. A dielectric 12 is applied to either side of the vertical portion of plane 10. Conductive strips 13 and 14 are applied to either side of the dielectric. Plane 10 is formed of a ferromagnetic material having the property of being highly conductive. This occurs when only D.
C. energy is being transmitted or when subjected to low frequency A. C. energy components. However, as the frequency of these components increases, the conductivity of the material decreases.

Dielectric material 12 is required to be lossy, so that the shunting conductance of the line increases as the frequency of the A. C. components increases. Because of the properties of the ground plane and dielectric, any disturbing signals resulting from these high frequency A. C. components are attenuated. Thus, the disturbing signal has little effect on the closely adjacent circuits.
