Need a quick start in Antenna simulation... Tired of drawing antenna models in Ansoft HFSS... Dont know what would be optimum parameters for simulation... Here is the solution.
1) Download HFSS Antenna Design kit from HFSS Antenna Design Kit.
2) Run the software
3) Select the desired antenna, enter parameters, Press Create Model
4) HFSS will draw antenna for you
The HFSS Antenna Design Kit is a stand-alone GUI-based utility which automates the geometry creation, solution setup, and post-processing reports for over 50 antenna elements. This tool allows antenna designers to efficiently analyze common antenna types using HFSS and also assists new users in learning to use HFSS for antenna design. The design kit can be integrated into the HFSS user interface or launched from the standard Windows menu. All antenna models created by the design kit are ready to simulate in HFSS.
Available antennas in the current release include planar and wire dipole, rectangular and elliptical patch, pyramidal, sectoral, and conical horn, rectangular and circular waveguide, planar and conical spiral, tapered slot, log-periodic, inverted-F, bowtie, biconical antennas, as well as many others ...
Besides Automatic model drawing it features report too. Input impedance, Return loss, 3d Radiation pattern, 2d Radiation pattern will be generated...
Happy HFSS modelling!
