Radiation Hazard Investigation for Multiple Simultaneous Transmitters

Introduction Radiation hazards have to be within standardised limits for many different hazard applications, e.g. human safety (HERP), fuel (HERF) and ordnance (HERO). Most radiation safety standards define maximum limits for field strength in frequency bands and form an equivalent … Read More

Aperture Coupled Microstrip Slot Antenna

A microstrip-fed aperture coupled microstrip antenna was designed by Rao et. al. [1].  A variant of this antenna was implemented in FEKO for the following specifications: 5.5 GHz centre frequency 50 Ω input impedance Substrate, ε = 3.2, height = … Read More

Proximity Coupled Circular Patch Antenna

An example of how a proximity coupled circular patch antenna may be simulated with FEKO. Davidovitz [1] and Alonso-Monferer [2] independently analysed a circular microstrip patch antenna with proximity coupling. A simple FEKO simulation was constructed and compared with their … Read More

Patch Antenna with Capacitive Feed Probe

A patch antenna with capacitive feed probe is modeled in FEKO to determine its impedance and radiation characteristics. Patch antennas have become quite popular due to their low profile design and ease of manufacturing.  Various methods exist by which to … Read More


Log Periodic Dipole Array

A log-periodic dipole array is modeled in FEKO to determine input impedance and radiation patterns Log-periodic dipole arrays (LPDAs) are wideband structures having a geometry such that its impedance and radiation characteristics vary periodically with the logarithm of frequency. This … Read More

Ku-Band Waveguide Filter

A Ku-band waveguide filter is modelled in FEKO to determine its frequency response Waveguide transmission lines are used in communications systems to feed horn or slotted waveguide antennas.  A filter is usually required to remove unwanted signal content and realising … Read More
