A Model For Predicting Surge Characteristics Internal To Broadband Distribution Equipment (1984)

By Steven A. Grossman, C-COR Electronics, Inc.

The characteristics of external surge waveforms and energy levels are well documented for both aerial and underground coaxial systems. The internal stresses applied to the complex electronic system of a modern broadband distribution amplifier are less known and documented. This paper presents a model which accurately predicts the magnitudes and waveshapes at certain key points in the amplifier. The results of the analysis are then used to determine proper and effective circuit design and protective device use.
