A question on Antenna Array simulation in HFSS - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2010 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

NOTICE: The original RF Cafe Forum is available again for reading, and the new RF Cafe Blog is an active board.

Hi, everyone, I want to use HFSS to simulate the antenna array. I set the ports for each antenna element, but the pattern looks like a single antenna element pattern. I guess if it is because I did not set all the exitations at the same time. I don't know how to give the antennas exitations at the same time. It is not infinite array. If someone who know how to set corrent exitations for antenna array, please help me!

Thanks a lot!

Lu

I'm not sure how to excite all the ports at once (my HFSS array designs have used corporate feeds) but I know you can solve a single element, and then see what it would be like if it were part of an array. After you've finished solving, go to 'radiation' and then 'array setting' and then you can say how many elements, and how far apart they are etc.

Hi

What you need to do is to go to "Field Overlays" tab and then click on

"Edit Sources". You'll see that only 1st port has magnitude of 1 while

the rest have magnitude of 0. So you set all other to either 1 for

uniform amplitude didtribution or some other value according to

your design goals.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
