This paper presents a simple and alternative approach for the analysis of inductive multiport waveguide microwave components. The technique uses a surface integral equation formulation to treat both metallic and dielectric objects inside the component structure. In order to avoid the relative convergence problem of other techniques based on mode matching, a novel port treatment is used. The technique is based on the application of the extinction theorem using the spatial representation of the Green's functions and image theory. Different complex H-plane structures are analyzed, including microwave bandpass filters with elliptic transfer functions and waveguide bends with dielectric posts. Results show the high accuracy and versatility of the new technique derived. © 2006 EuMA.
