An attempt is made to develop an analytical method for investigating the discontinuities and coupling phenomena in microstrip lines under the quasi-TEM approximation. Fourier domain analysis along with Galerkins method are employed for formulating the problem. Lumped circuit representation is used to show the effect of discontinuity in the microstrip structure. The degree of success that has been achieved in this investigation has been tested by applying the present method to several representative problems, e.g., coupled pairs of microstrip transmission lines, abruptly ended microstrip line, gap in microstrip lines etc. The result obtained by the use of Fourier and Galerkin techniques have been found quite encouraging.
