The method of moments is applied to three-dimensional microstrip problems to calculate lumped (or excess) capacitance. As examples, the capacitance of open-circuited microstrip lines and the capacitance of rectangular microstrip sections are computed. The open-circuit data are basic to any three-dimensional problem. The method is a general one and can be used to compute the lumped capacitance of any microstrip discontinuity, such as bends and T junctions.
