Electromagnetic solvers based on the partial element equivalent circuit (PEEC) approach have been proven to be well suited for the solution of combined circuit and EM problems. In this paper, we focused on structures with small cross-section such as linear and platy conductors which are quite common in modeling various issues. According to their special geometries, only one-dimensional or two-dimensional subdivision rather than three-dimensional mesh is required, to which case basic PEEC method is applied inefficiently. Depending on this kind of situation, a novel equivalent capacitance calculation method for PEEC partial elements is proposed for modeling linear and platy structures in order to simplify the solution and improve the efficiency. Accordingly, the solving time and other resources can be reduced greatly.
