ANSYS HFSS for Antenna Design

Overview

Assuming basic knowledge of HFSS, the HFSS antenna course focuses on antenna-related HFSS topics such as boundaries, including how well they absorb energy from different angles, and hybrid regions which connect different antenna simulations together. HFSS Antenna explores both finite element analysis (FEA) volumetric simulation as well as integral equation (IE) simulation and how they can connect a reflector antenna dish simulation to a horn antenna simulation feeding the dish.  HFSS Antenna practices impedance matching antenna with circuit elements and explores examples of finite array design analysis with unit cells and Floquet modes.

Prerequisites

  • HFSS Getting Started or equivalent familiarity with HFSS 3D modeler, workflow, solver setup, and post-processing (plotting results graphs).
  • Knowledge of microwave electronic principles including S-parameters, transmission lines and antenna far-field radiation patterns.
  • Knowledge of antenna impedance matching, infinite array and finite array principles are also important as workshop exercises utilize these engineering principles.

Target Audience: Engineers and Designers

Teaching Method: Lectures and computer practical sessions to validate acquired knowledge. A training certificate is provided to all attendees who complete the course.
