Step 1

Quarter wave transformer is an impedance matching device and it resides between the transmission line and the load.

The input side of the quarter wave transformer is connected to the transmission line and the output side is connected to the load.

If the impedance of the transmission line and the load impedance are having different values, then impedance matching is done by the quarter wave transformer.

Step 2

The characteristic impedance of the quarter wave transformer can be expressed as

Step 3

In the present case, the value of the impedance of the transmission line and the value of the impedance of the load are gi...
