Ansys Field Optimization (Self-Paced Learning Available)

Course Overview

The Ansys Field Optimization course explores topics such as optimization of the amplitude taper in a linear antenna array, optimization of the radiation pattern of an antenna array by applying mask, optimization of the steered beam in a phased antenna array by applying mask, and co-optimization of Circuit design and antenna system using Ansys HFSS. This course is designed for intermediate-advanced users and includes five workshops that demonstrate the field optimization workflow from start to finish. 


Teaching Method

Hands-on simulation workshops to develop productive skills in field optimization using HFSS. The simulation workshops are self-explanatory and easy to follow for independent learners. 

Learning Outcome

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

  • Include the parameters and define the optimization goals to achieve the desired radiation pattern in an antenna array.
  • Create or import a mask.
  • Define the optimization goals to follow the mask pattern in an antenna array.
  • Define the optimization goal for steered beams in a phased antenna array to follow the mask pattern.
  • Include multiple goals in an optimization process.
  • Link variables between HFSS and Circuit for the optimization process.
  • Optimize circuits with both arbitrary and manufacturable values.
  • Optimize a circuit as a function of switch combinations in a matrix.
  • Co-optimize the circuit including the touchstone files with HFSS design.
