An improved boundary element method (BEM) for the calculation of the capacitance matrix in a multiconductor transmission line structure is presented, where the edge singularities of the charge and current near the corners of the cross-sections of the signal lines are embedded in the basis functions. The new method demonstrates improved accuracy and enhanced computational efficiency in comparison to previous methods. Comparisons of the results from the new algorithm with the approaches presented in previous publications are provided.
