In this paper, we describe a strategy to characterize power and ground-plane structures using a full cavity-mode frequency-domain resonator model. We develop insights into modal analysis and introduce a novel technique to suppress modal impedances, minimizing both transfer and input impedances. The influence of port locations on the Z matrix is evaluated.
