ABSTRACT
Techniques are described for simulating lossy (RLC) transmission lines based on the method of characteristics. For uncoupled lossy transmission lines, a method is presented which speeds up the simulation time by a factor of two compared with existing techniques. A method is also presented for the transient analysis of coupled lossy lines in an inhomogeneous medium. Previously, simulation techniques were limited to coupled lossy lines in a homogeneous medium.
