Transient Analysis of a Printed Dual-Band Strip Antenna

Application ID: 67501

A wideband antenna study, such as an S-parameter or far-field pattern analysis, can be obtained by performing a transient response analysis and a time-to-frequency fast Fourier transform (FFT). This model runs a time dependent study first and then transforms the dependent variable, the magnetic vector potential A, and a voltage signal at a lumped port from time domain to frequency domain. S-parameters and far-field radiation data are generated from the frequency domain data. The computed S-parameters shows two resonance in the given frequency range, as expected for this dual-band antenna design.

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