The paper aims to give the reader a consolidated state of art in the full‐wave modeling of passive interconnection systems using equivalent circuits and presents several advantageous techniques developed by the authors.


The paper presents the theory of generalized partial element equivalent circuit (PEEC) modeling in the frequency domain (FD) and time domain (TD) developed by the authors. The widely spread simplified approaches are derived from this general formulation and the most important issues (e.g. stability in the TD) are considered. The theoretical part is completed by a simulation example, which shows the efficiency of studied methods.


Novel approaches for co‐simulation of passive interconnections in their circuit environment.

Practical implications

The PEEC method is widely used in the practice of computational electromagnetics, e.g. by the authors in the practical electromagnetic compatibility simulation.


The paper is based on the original work of authors carried through over many years.
