- The UWB UHF coupler for GIS PD detection requires a balun (balance to unbalance transformer) to show its inherent UWB characteristics. In order to reduce the size of the balun and to make it practical in the conventional GIS, a novel tapered coaxial balun with a dielectric was proposed for the UWB UHF coupler. The performance of the proposed balun was verified through a series of simulations, measurements and experiments. As a result, both the conventional balun and the proposed balun, which has a length equal to one third of that of the conventional balun, demonstrated good S11 characteristics, whereas the efficiency of the proposed balun increased as much as about 30% in comparison to the conventional one.
