The Ansys HFSS Antenna Arrays and Periodic Structures course explores topics such as Infinite Array (Unit Cell analysis), Finite Array with both periodic and semi-periodic (non-identical) unit cell structures, scanning the beams using Finite Array Beam Angel Calculator Toolkit, and Frequency Selective Surfaces (FSS). This course is designed for intermediate-advanced users and includes four modules with workshops that demonstrate the workflows from start to finish.
- Prior knowledge of Ansys HFSS Getting Started Course and Ansys HFSS 3D Components, Boundary Conditions, Ports and Mesh Course are required.
- Knowledge of antenna design and relevant parameters including S-parameters, Directivity, Gain, Realized Gain, Axial Ratio, Linear and Circular Polarization are highly recommended.
- Knowledge of antenna impedance matching, infinite array and finite array principles are also important as workshops utilize these engineering principles.
Lectures and hands-on simulation workshops to develop familiarity and productive skill in analyzing antenna arrays and periodic structures using HFSS. Although the course listing is instructor led, the simulation workshops are self-explanatory and easy to follow for independent learners. A training certificate is issued on completion of the course.
