**Abstract**

A new approach for numerical solution of sinusoidal steady state

Maxwell's equations is developed. This approach is based on Yee's

method, and can be applied on unstructured grids. A case problem

with available analytical solution is solved by the method and the

results show a good agreement with analytical solution. This method

can be improved to be applicable for general unsteady problems.
