A transmission line

can refer either to a single cable carrying electricity over a transmission system, or to the physical path travelled by electricity on its way from producer to consumer.[1]


A transmission line is the material medium or structure that forms all or part of a path from one place to another for directing the transmission of energy, such as electric currents, magnetic fields, acoustic waves, or electromagnetic waves. Examples of transmission lines include wires, optical fibers, coaxial cables, rectangular closed waveguides, and dielectric slabs.
