PURPOSE: to calculate the time-average power dissipated in the imperfectly conducting wire and in the lumped loads.
METHOD: The time-average power dissipated by the wire is calculated in the DO LOOP ending at statement 1 utilizing the equation below:
where Rs is the surface resistance of the wire and a is the radius of the wire.
The power dissipated by the lumped loads is caluculated by the DO LOOP ending at statement 3. If the wire is perfectly conducting, CMM < 0, the first calculation is by-passed.
