In the paper a MATLAB-based method for simulating transientphenomena in linear hybrid circuits containing parts with both lumpedand distributed parameters is presented. Distributed parts of thecircuit are multiconductor transmission lines, which can generally benonuniform, with frequency-dependent parameters, and under nonzeroinitial voltage and/or current distributions. In principle a solutionis formulated using the modified nodal analysis method in the frequencydomain. Subsequently an improved fast method of the numerical inversionof Laplace transforms in the vector or matrix form is applied to obtainsolution in the time domain.
