ANSYS HFSS for Antenna Design

Overview

The HFSS Antenna course explores antenna-related HFSS topics, based around single-element antennas, including open regions (absorbing/radiating PML, ABC/Radiation and FE-BI), near fields, far fields, dynamic link to circuit, and optimization with both Optimetrics and optiSLang.  In addition to FEM (finite element method) volumetric meshed simulation open region boundaries, HFSS Antenna explores the integral equation (IE) surface mesh formulation and ray-based formulations including physical optics (PO) and SBR+ (shooting bouncing ray).  The final sections cover hybrid regions with more than one formulation (IE, PO, and SBR+) simulated across distances, facilitated by FE-BI (finite element – boundary integral) regions.

Learning Outcome

Following completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Create antennas from the Antenna Design Toolkit or by drawing new geometry
  • Generate both far field and near field plots for linear and circular polarizations
  • Create antenna simulation results reports and plot field overlays on antenna geometry
  • Connect antenna structures to RF circuit schematics
  • Run Optimetrics in HFSS as well as set up optiSLang to work with HFSS
  • Understand and choose various EM formulations available for antenna design

Prerequisites

  • Completion of the HFSS Getting Started course or equivalent familiarity with HFSS 3D modeler, workflow, solver setup, and post-processing (plotting results graphs).
  • The HFSS 3D Components, Boundary Conditions, Ports and Mesh course is highly recommended.
  • Knowledge of microwave electronics and antenna engineering principles, including S-parameters, transmission lines, matching networks and antenna far-field radiation patterns.
  • The HFSS 3D Components, Boundary Conditions, Ports and Mesh course is highly recommended.

Target Audience: Antenna Design Engineers and others working in antenna related simulation areas.

Teaching Method: Lecture slide files and hands-on simulation workshops connect technical concepts with practical skill in using HFSS FEM.  A training certificate is issued on completion of the course.

Learning Options: Training materials for this course are available with a ANSYS Learning Hub Subscription. If there is no active public schedule available, private training can be arranged. Please contact us.
