Using multiple port

Post by openems » Fri 03 Apr 2020, 08:43

I am trying to use two radiating elements for my antenna..
If I use two ports and exciting both of them will be taken as same source for both of them or separate sources for each port?
Because I am getting different s11 for individual excitation and when both ports are excited at the same time..
I am trying to understand that using two ports will use same source for both of them or one source will excite each port serially?

In each simulation each active port is excited. If you want an s11 and s21, you have to active port 1 and deactivate port 2. For s22 and s12 you need ti do another simulation with port 2 active and port 1 inactive.
If you excite port 1 and 2 and the coupling is very very small you could calculate s11 and s22 simultaneously but I would not recommend it.
