A comparison of numerical and experimental results for the current flowing into a nonlinear diode load attached to the terminals of a receiving antenna for transient excitation is presented. It is shown that a simple nonlinear resistive model for the diode is not sufficient to obtain good agreement between the theoretical and experimental results. The diode model and numerical analysis are modified so as to permit the consideration of a junction capacitance. The resulting comparison of data is much better.
