The implementation of voltage, current, electric field and magnetic field sources is described. The correct voltage pulses that must be injected into a TLM network to produce a given temporal and spatial field distribution are obtained by placing voltage sources in a reference structure. This gives a field of known amplitude in which transients decay more rapidly than with the conventional approach. The method is applied to a waveguide.
