Abstract

In this paper, we present a new electromagnetic modelling analysis based on the Analytical Spatial Method of Moments (AS-MoM) using roof-top basis functions and prove advantages of integrals' resolution in conjunction with technique that permit to reduce the number of unknowns in the MoM matrix and to minimize time and memory consumption. This technique takes into account the existence of TEM zones inside the structure and far from discontinuities. There, we represent the current under an exponential form to analyze wave's propagation inside the structure. The advantages of this contribution will be illustrated by numerical results.
