A scheme for analyzing electrodynamic problems involving conducting plates of resonant size using the conjugate-gradient (CG) method and the fast Fourier transform (FFT) is presented in detail. The problems are analyzed by solving their corresponding electric-field integral equation. The procedure is made easy and systematic by using a sampling process with rooftop functions to represent the induced current and pulses to average the fields. These functions have been widely used in moment-method (MM) applications. The scheme is an efficient numerical tool, benefiting from the good convergence and low memory requirements of the CG and the low CPU time consumed in performing convolutions with the FFT. In comparison with the MM, the scheme avoids the storage of large matrices and reduces the computer time by an order of magnitude. Several results are presented and compared with analytical, numerical, or measured values that appear in the literature.<>
