How to avoid oscillatory phenomena with short circuited terminals of Cable Networks ?
Cable Networks with short-circuited terminals may exhibit Common-Mode (CM) currents with a highly oscillatory behavior. This article illustrates one solution to eliminate such behavior by considering lossy dielectric coatings varying with the frequency.

FD Interpolating Scheme near Metallic Structures
This article illustrates the PAM-CEM/FD interpolation scheme applied to compute the tangential electric field along wires’ path running near metallic structures (and aimed at avoiding the management of field components on both sides of the surface).

3D/Multiconductor Transmission Lines (MTL) Coupling VS. Stand-Alone FDTD (Accuracy)
This article is aimed at comparing the 3D/Multiconductor Transmission Lines (MTL) coupling accuracy with the PAM-CEM/FD stand-alone use, when applied to simplified wired models. Recommendations for good agreement are also proposed.
