reflection loss

[ri′flek·shən ‚lȯs]
(electricity)
Reciprocal of the ratio, expressed in decibels, of the scalar values of the volt-amperes delivered to the load to the volt-amperes that would be delivered to a load of the same impedance as the source.
Apparent transmission loss of a line which results from a portion of the energy being reflected toward the source due to a discontinuity in the transmission line.
