This paper presents the solution of wave equations on transmission lines where leakage to ground on the line is very small. As a result of the leakages to ground on the transmission lines which are negligible, the conductance and the inductance, which are responsible for leakages on the line, are set to zero in the model of the general wave equation of the transmission line. The Laplace transform method was now applied to transform the resulting partial differential equation into ordinary differential equation and the method of variation of parameters was used to get the particular solution to the problem.
