A fast and efficient method of simulating the time-domain transient response of coupled, tapered transmission lines is presented. A time-domain scattering parameter formulation is used to derive the simple closed-form expression for the voltage variables for uniform lossless lines; this expression is applied to tapered lines by dividing the lines into many uniform section. Computational efficiency and stability are achieved using recursive time-domain algorithms. When a quasi-TEM propagation mode is assumed, the method is applicable to nonlinear terminations and inhomogeneous dielectric media. Memory requirements are minimized and are independent of the number of time steps. Simulation results showed good agreement with experimental results
