Hi. I'm simulating a 2.4Ghz slot antenna. Everything is well but when I do the Analyse all on HFSS v.13,
this error pops up.
HFSSDesign1 (DrivenTerminal)
[error] Port refinement, process hf3d error: Too few conductors were found on port p1. There should be one conductor for each terminal, with one additional reference conductor. Unintentional contact between conductors may cause this error.. (9:11:03 AM Mar 16, 2016)
[error] Simulation completed with execution error on server: Local Machine. (9:11:03 AM Mar 16, 2016)

How do I overcome this? Thanks. And how can I upload a file?

Hi kagawa,

The error is telling you that the port needs to be in contact with at least two conductors -- that's how driven terminal works. If you're just trying to excite a slotline mode, a Driven Modal may be better for you.

Good Luck

Hi PlanarMetamaterials,

My professor insists that the simulation be done in driven terminal and that's where I'm stuck. Please have a look at the attached files and let me know where the issue is.

Thanks in advance.
