Abstract : Recently published theoretic and experimental results have shown the ability of inverse scattering-based methods to detect and to locate soft faults in electric cables, in particular, faults implying smooth spatial variations of cable characteristic parameters. The purpose of the present paper is to further experimentally evaluate the inverse scattering method for retrieving spatially distributed characteristic impedance from reflectometry measurements. With high quality coaxial cables connected in parallel, composite cables of piecewise constant characteristic impedance profiles are built in order to evaluate the accuracy of the inverse scattering method and its robustness in the presence of impedance discontinuities.
