This paper presents a Partial Element Equivalent Circuit (PEEC) based simulation tool, called TAES for simulating transients in electrical systems including steels, cables and non-linear devices. Steels are the ferromagnetic material that requires a magnetic PEEC formulation for analysis, in which both the skin effect and the magnetization are taken into consideration. A vector fitting technique is then employed in order to realize a time domain simulation. A system with steel bars, cables and arrestors is studied and results of experimental verification are provided. Finally, lightning transients in a practical configuration for telecommunication towers is analyzed using the proposed tool.
