Dear All,,,
I have a question regarding the basics of transmission lines...

If there is an RF source with rms voltage of (Vg) and an internal resistance (Rs) connected to a quarter wave transmission line terminated by an open circuit.

Now since the RF source would see a short circuit at its terminals because of the impedance transformation of a quarter wave line,,,, would this mean that there would be power (Vg^2/Rs) dissipated in its internal resistance (Rs)????

Regards.
