Re: Licensing

Hi, openEMS is licensed under the GPL . More infos here . But this license only applies to the software itself. Only if you want to include openEMS (the software) into your own software product you have to oblige to the GPL license. Any output, data, idea or results obtained with openEMS, is your ow...

Re: Customized Waveguide Port

It is all defined here: https://github.com/thliebig/CSXCAD/blob ... Parser.cpp

If I read my already eight year old code correctly it should be "y0" and "y2".
The reason for y is that this is the name in "math.h". Don't ask me why...

Re: usage of different prio is giving entirely different return loss curve!

I can only recommend to never use the same priority twice. Unless you are 100% sure they do not touch. STL is a bit tricky as it is unclear what happens if the STL surface is not closed or in others ways not healthy. Make sure the STL is closed, manifold and so on. Then add the STL as metal and noth...

Re: What happens if the feed is in positive Z directions and there are metallic parts touching it in the ZX plane.

Well maybe I have to be more precise. Intersecting e.g. a lumped port somewhere in the middle is not a good idea. Of course you need to connect the ends with metal signal lines which need to intersect or touch the port.
Just look at all the tutorials and examples on how it should be done.

Re: What happens if the feed is in positive Z directions and there are metallic parts touching it in the ZX plane.

Intersecting the port with metal parts is not a good idea as the port will not be able to excite a "nice" electric field. But what exactly happens depends strongly on what you are doing...

Re: Waveguide adapter simulation

I agree, you should just do this in the "normal" mesh. Both types of ports should work fine. You "only" need to come up with a transition. But the RWG TE01 und the CWG TE11 mode should be similar enough that this should not be too difficult?

Re: Problem with phase accuracy in waveguide polarisers

This sound indeed a bit surprising, but maybe you can supply your script and we can have a look? In which direction to you need this dense mesh. In all or only in direction of the waveguide or across the cross section? Do you think that the stair-casing of the waveguide boundaries are the problem? W...

Re: Waveguide adapter simulation

I have played with a SMA to rect waveguide transition but RWG to CWG should be interesting too and should be possible with openEMS (if that was the question). But I have not tried it yet.

Re: Installing openEMS on Ubuntu 16.04 of an AWS cloud instance possible?

Hi Hannes, openEMS itself only depends on the CSXCAD library and both have to interface to any GUI elements and ran run nicely on a server without any graphical interface. All you need to transfer simulation data and run openEMS is for example an SSH access. This is what I did plenty in the past. Th...

Re: RCS with changing theta

Well the mesh usually is the main cause of long simulations. A good indication is if the excitation is already requiring a large amount of time-steps and the nyquist rate is very high too. Example for good numbers: FDTD timestep is: 9.63258e-13 s; Nyquist rate: 173 timesteps @3.00041e+09 Hz Excitati...
