Waveguide Diplexer Design with FEKO, FEST3D and SPARK3D

A waveguide diplexer is designed using the interface between FEKO and FEST3D. A part of the design is modelled in FEKO and the obtained generalised scattering matrix is used as a component in the FEST3D model. A multipactor analysis is … Read More

Singly-Fed Circularly Polarized Electromagnetically Coupled Patch Antenna

A description of the FEKO model for an antenna presented at the ACES 2007 conference. Model Description Hajiaboli and Popovic presented a paper on a novel circularly polarized patch structure at the ACES 2007 conference, [1]. The antenna consists of … Read More

Solving a Patch Antenna with the FEM

The FEM current source and complex load for the FEM region enables the setting of an excitation inside a FEM dielectric region and to calculate S-parameters. This load is set at an arbitrary position inside the FEM mesh, i.e. it … Read More

Isosurfaces for Near-Field Characterisation of Transmitter ICNIRP Boundaries

A description of how isosurfaces may be used to evaluate radiation hazard safety boundaries around transmitter structures against ICNIRP guidelines. Physical Problem In this example a large truss structure is used to support omnidirectional GSM antennas and Yagi-Uda antennas at … Read More

Wide-Band Stacked Annular-Ring Dielectric Resonator Antenna

A wide-band stacked annular-ring dielectric resonator antenna is modelled efficiently with the FEM/MOM and 2 planes of magnetic symmetry. Introduction: The FEM/MoM is often overlooked as an efficient technique for modelling dielectrics. This is even more true when the model consists of more than one dielectric layer. The traditional … Read More

Large Array Modelling – A Microstrip Case Study

A 25 x 40 element microstrip array is used as a case study of how large antenna arrays may be modelled with the ideal transmitting antenna feature in FEKO. Introduction This case study aims to illustrate how large arrays may … Read More
