Here we develop and extend a transmission line method (TLM) to analyze the performance of graphene assisted metamaterial (GM) devices working in the terahertz (THz) band. We demonstrate that a circuit model can be presented for different parts of the device including graphene and also the patterned metallic sheet by analyzing the distribution of surface induced current. In pursuit of evaluating the efficiency and accuracy of our proposed method, we compare its results, obtained from an easy to implement MATLAB code for a typical GM absorber with those obtained from full wave simulations. The excellence of the proposed method in terms of computation time (showing more than 3 orders of magnitude reduction in run time) and memory resource besides producing results with acceptable agreement with the results of full wave simulation (with an error less than 5%) versus incident angle, dielectric thickness and chemical potential, nominates it as a promising approach to simulate other graphene-based devices.
