# Solution Methods for Cables

Solve a cable harness with either the Multiconductor transmission line (MTL) method or the Method of moments (MoM), only for shielded cables method.

## Multiconductor transmission line (MTL)

• Solve the model with the multiconductor transmission line theory, hybridised with the MoM or MLFMM.
• The cable path should ideally be within $\frac{\lambda }{10}$ of the conducting surface, although distances of up to $\frac{\lambda }{5}$ are allowed. Alternatively, a cable reference direction can be set on the cable path.
• Connections between the cable and MoM geometry are not allowed.

## Method of moments (MoM), only for shielded cables

• Solve the model with the combined MoM/MTL solver.
• Any arbitrary cable path is allowed - the height restriction of the MTL does not apply.
• Cables must be shielded.
• Connections between the cable and MoM geometry are allowed.
