How to script to get power(P) by integrating electric field (E) and magnetic field (H) in Coplanar waveguide?

Dears, I have some query about how to script the formula need to use a calculation of power using the cross product of electric field and magnetic field in the coplanar waveguide? In my case I tried in this way {intop1(-emw.Exemw.Hxt1x-emw.Eyemw.Hyt1y)}; the resulting unit is W/m, but the unit of power is watt (W) only. Note: All the calculation need to do in the RF module in COMSOL So I am requesting all of you can help me to solve this problem?

  1. First of all, your equation has errors in the variable names. For z-directed power, you would need to integrate emw.Ex * emw.Hy -emw.Ey * emw.Hx. But assuming you are working in the frequency domain, what you really need to integrate is 0.5 * real(emw.Ex * conj(emw.Hy) -emw.Ey * conj(emw.Hx)).
  2. BUT there is no need for you to do this anyway! Instead, just integrate the value of the Poynting vector in the z-direction. And Comsol provides that quantity for you. Specifically, integrate emw.Poavz over the cross-sectional area (in the xy plane) through which the power flows.

Dear Robert Koslover; I will try using this idea. Actually i did not know about that integrate emw.Poavz and integrate0.5 * real(emw.Ex * conj(emw.Hy) -emw.Ey * conj(emw.Hx)) is same.

Thank you for your valuable suggestion.
