A current continuity equation is proposed as the additional equation for the GTD-MM hybrid technique formulation to acquire the uniqueness of the solution which were nonexistent in the conventional formulation with the matching-point equation. The current continuity equation, which ensures the current continuity and satisfies the boundary condition, can directly be written down through equating the MM-region current to the GTD-region current at the regions boundary. It is proved that the current continuity equation is equivalent to the matching-point equation of special case when the matching-point located very close to the boundary, which were able to give the best solution in the conventional formulation with the matching-point equation as explained by Burnside et al. The validity of the new equation is confirmed through the numerical results.
