Abstract. Nonlinearly loaded lossless transmission lines inside a rectangular cavity are studied using the left- and right-hand Green's functions of the problem in time domain. These Green's functions are developed for a transmission line with quasi-matched loads. This ensures Green's functions of a short duration. Therefore, the amount of frequency data necessary to obtain time-domain Green's functions is quite limited. The time-domain Green's functions are finally convolved with the left- and right-hand line voltages. With this technique it is possible to treat arbitrarily loaded transmission lines in resonators. An example is presented to demonstrate the applicability of this technique to a transmission line with a simple diode as nonlinear load.
