In order to maximize the circuit density, the ground conductor width should be as small as possible, but truncating lateral ground planes and placing CPW close to each other also increase line-to-line coupling.
Furthermore, the constant resistance is mainly determined the ground conductor.
From the physical point of view, the microstrip antenna contains an active plane made from resonant elements, dielectrically separated by a ground conductor plane.
However, a transient going to ground on a ground conductor may be inductively coupled onto protected conductors downstream of the surge suppressor, compromising the benefit of the surge suppressor.
The total inductance of the return path depends on the number of magnetic field line loops around the ground conductor that come from the current in the ground path, and the number of field line loops around the ground conductor that come from the signal path.
In such cases, the skin losses in the substrate will be larger than the losses in the ground conductor.
