Based on an algorithm developed by the authors, multiple transmission lines with skin effect losses and dispersive characteristics are analyzed by the volume equivalent principle, and the scattering matrix [Sω] and characteristic impedance matrix [Z] of the transmission lines are obtained. The [Sω] and [Z0(w)] are then transformed by the inverse fast Fourier transform (FFT) into the time domain. The scattering matrix representation is multiplicative in nature, which leads to a time-domain formulation as a set of convolution integrals. Instead of attempting to solve a set of coupled convolution integral equations by the multivariable Newton-Raphson method, which may occasionally be unstable, the authors generate a set of object functions and apply a multivariable optimization technique, referred to as the modified Levenberg-Marquardt algorithm, to attain the solutions. The new method, which is quite general, reduces to the special cases derived in many previous publications
