We present a methodology to generate passive parametric macromodels from impedance, admittance or scattering samples. The key features of the proposed approach are two. First, the proposed model is passive by construction over the entire parameter range, and will therefore lead to stable time-domain simulations. Second, the model poles are fully(More)
We present a new algorithm for generating passive parametric models of microwave devices from their sampled scattering responses. The proposed formulation supports a parameterization of model poles and preserves the stability and passivity of the original device for any parameter value. These combined features lead to significant improvements with respect(More)
We introduce a novel formulation of black-box models for long multiconductor interconnects, together with an identification algorithm from tabulated scattering parameters. The fundamental assumption requires a modal decomposition matrix that does not depend on frequency. The model structure includes low-order rational coefficients with suitable delay(More)
The timestep of the finite-difference time-domain method (FDTD) is constrained by the stability limit known as the Courant-Friedrichs-Lewy (CFL) condition. This limit can make FDTD simulations quite time consuming for structures containing small geometrical details. Several methods have been proposed in the literature to extend the CFL limit, including(More)
We present a fast numerical technique for calculating the series impedance matrix of systems with round conductors. The method is based on a surface admittance operator in combination with the method of moments and it accurately predicts both skin and proximity effects. Application to a three-phase armored cable with wire screens demonstrates a speedup by a(More)
Wide-band cable models for the prediction of electromagnetic transients in power systems require the accurate calculation of the cable series impedance as function of frequency. A surface current approach was recently proposed for systems of round solid conductors, with inclusion of skin and proximity effects. In this paper we extend the approach to include(More)
The availability of accurate and broadband models for underground and submarine cable systems is of paramount importance for the correct prediction of electromagnetic transients in power grids. Recently, we proposed the MoM-SO method for extracting the series impedance of power cables while accounting for skin and proximity effect in the conductors. In this(More)
An accurate modeling of skin effect inside conductors is of capital importance to solve transmission line and scattering problems. This paper presents a surface-based formulation to model skin effect in conductors of arbitrary cross section, and compute the per-unit-length impedance of a multiconductor transmission line. The proposed formulation is based on(More)
This paper establishes a far-reaching connection between the Finite-Difference Time-Domain method (FDTD) and the theory of dissipative systems. The FDTD equations for a rectangular region are written as a dynamical system having the magnetic and electric fields on the boundary as inputs and outputs. Suitable expressions for the energy stored in the region(More)
An accurate knowledge of the per-unit length impedance of power cables is necessary to correctly predict electromagnetic transients in power systems. In particular, skin, proximity, and ground return effects must be properly estimated. In many applications, the medium that surrounds the cable is not uniform and can consist of multiple layers of different(More)
