Abstract

The analysis of a horizontal grounding electrode has been carried out using the set of generalized telegrapher’s equations. The integro-differential relationships arising from the full wave model are numerically handled via the Galerkin– Bubnov scheme of the Indirect Boundary Element Method (GB-IBEM). Some illustrative numerical results for the current and voltage induced along the horizontal electrode are given in the paper. Keywords: boundary elements, grounding systems, antenna theory, generalized telegrapher’s equations.
