The author discusses a simple analysis for determining the electromagnetic fields produced by the MEMPS simulator. A transmission line solution for the currents flowing on the simulator structure is obtained, taking into account both the resistive loading along the simulator and the dispersive nature of the earth under the simulator. Once the current distribution is determined, the fields at an arbitrary location are found by integrating the fields produced by an electric current element located over the lossy air-earth interface. Using this model, a procedure for estimating the fields at an arbitrary location within the simulator is described. This requires a knowledge of the primary transient E and H field components at a reference point near the simulator, or equivalently, a knowledge of the incident E or H field at this point. Results of this study indicate that it is possible to predict the simulator fields at other points, based on the reference fields and the calculational model
