Finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) is a popular computational electrodynamics modeling technique. Initially, this method was implemented to solve Maxwell’s equations. In this technique, the time-dependent partial differentials are discretized using central-difference approximations to the space and time partial derivatives. The resulting finite-difference equations are solved in either software or hardware in a leapfrog manner. For the first time, this method was implemented by Yee et al. [1] for Maxwell’s equations solutions. In this method, FDTD is implemented on the transmission line equation in which relative parameters are line voltage (V) and current (I) similar to electric field (E) and magnetic field (H) in Maxwell’s equations.
