A new algorithm is presented for sensitivity analysis of nonunifom, multi-conductor transmission lines in the presence of nonlinear terminations. The algorithm is based on model-order reduction using integrated conpence transform. The proposed algorithm does not require partitioning the nonuniform line into cascaded connections of uniform sections. In addition, sensitivity information are obtained f" solving a reduced-order system, which provides significant computational savings.
