Magnetic Frill

Application ID: 1419

Feeding antennas with proper signals can be difficult. The signal is often described as a voltage, and voltages are not well defined in electromagnetic wave formulations. There are several tricks to model voltage generators in such situations, and one is the magnetic frill. This model shows the basic steps of defining a magnetic frill voltage generator for a dipole antenna, and it also compares the resulting antenna impedance with known results.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
