Upon closure of a switch, the TEM wave (step) travels at the speed of light between the conducting wires of the transmission line, from battery to load, as depicted in Fig.

In papers [9,10] a problem of transient TEM wave excitation and diffraction in the biconical antenna has been solved in the time domain using an approach based on mode matching incorporated into the finite difference time stepping scheme for the mode channels.
This situation is similar to the TEM wave incident normally to the planar boundary [4].
Since a coaxial waveguide is used, a TEM wave is propagating inside the waveguide.
In the numerical model, the Cartesian axis system is centered in the apex of the pyramidal shape of the GTEM cell and the z axis corresponds to the propagation direction of the TEM wave.
A TEM wave enters the primary line AB at input port A and leaves at the output port B.
The electric field component can be derived from a linear superposition of the TEM wave and an oscillating magnetic dipole at the end of the conductor.
The energy is transported in the cell mainly by TEM waves, which are the dominant mode up to the frequencies where transversal electric (TE) modes are also excited [4].
