Feed excitation

Post by openems » Tue 09 Jun 2020, 07:46

How exactly a feed works? what and all components does it has? like is it a metal plate or it is just voltage changes from one point to another point? Can anybody tell me the model used for feed and any documentation for the feed..

Feed is a transmission line connecting the device of interest to power source.
You, probably mean a port.

In general, most ports are voltages over a load block in OpenEMS, except plane wave excitation, which is represented by a cube with boundaries pulling a plane inside, and cancelling it outside, for pure scattering analysis.

So, when you are taking a microstrip port, the power will flow in opposite directions. Therefore you need either a PML on the other side, or a reflecting termination.

How to find feed position in simple patch antenna?kindly provide the tutorial of meander line antenna design at 0.9 Ghz frequency.
