In this chapter some fundamental waveguide phase conventions will first be reviewed. Following this, more generalized uses of the peripheral scale labeled 'angle of reflection coefficient' will be presented. Next, a discussion of the voltage, current, and power transmission coefficient, with generalized SMITH CHART overlays therefore, will be given. Finally, some additional waveguide voltage and waveguide current phase relationships will be discussed and presented in the form of general-purpose overlays for the SMITH CHART. These latter phase relationships are of fundamental importance in the design of waveguide components and antennas employing phased radiating elements excited through waveguide feed systems.
