The distortion of an electrical pulse, which has a rise/fall time due to the dispersion and the reflection, on tapered microstrip lines has investigated In time domain. The voltage and current transfer functions are shown for the tapered line. The dispersion distortion obtained by using these trans(or functions are represented for the nonideal square pulse along the triangular, Tchebycheff and exponential tapered lines, and analyzed the influence of the reflection and the frequency dispersion on the distorted voltage wave in the tapered lines. The observed overshoot in front of the distorted wane is caused due to the frequency dispersion and the sustained tail of that comes from the reflection in the tapered line.
