Abstract

This paper presents a hybrid method consisting of thin wire FDTD method and transmission line (TL) equations to be used for the coupling analysis of multiconductor transmission lines (MTLs) excited by a dipole antenna. In this method, the thin wire FDTD method is used to build the structure of the dipole antenna and obtain the radiation electromagnetic fields surrounding the MTLs, which are introduced into the TL equations as the distribution sources. The TL equations are utilized to model the coupling of the radiation electromagnetic fields to the MTLs, which are discrete by the scheme of the FDTD method to obtain the transient voltage and current responses on the lines and terminal loads. The accuracy and efficiency of this method have been verified by comparing with the commercial simulation software CST via one case. Moreover, the influences of the frequencies and polarization of the dipole antenna and the heights of the MTLs on the coupling of MTLs are analyzed.
