Implementation of Simple Finite-Difference Analysis of Transmissions Lines in MATLAB
See every line of MATLAB typed and explained by an expert for analyzing a high-frequency transmission line using the finite-difference method. The program can analyze any type of transmission line including balanced and unbalanced to calculate distributed capacitance, distributed inductance, characteristic impedance, and visualizing the field.
