Computer Simulation of Nonuniform MTLs via Implicit Wendroff and State-Variable Methods
MetadataShow full item record
The paper deals with techniques for a computer simulation of nonuniform multiconductor transmission lines (MTLs) based on the implicit Wendroff and the statevariable methods. The techniques fall into a class of finitedifference time-domain (FDTD) methods useful to solve various electromagnetic systems. Their basic variants are extended and modified to enable solving both voltage and current distributions along nonuniform MTL’s wires and their sensitivities with respect to lumped and distributed parameters. An experimental error analysis is performed based on the Thomson cable whose analytical solutions are known, and some examples of simulation of both uniform and nonuniform MTLs are presented. Based on the Matlab language programme, CPU times are analyzed to compare efficiency of the methods. Some results for nonlinear MTLs simulation are presented as well.
