MOM 6.2.10

15.3. Example 3: Radiation Map simulation with frequency sweep

This case explains how to calculate far-field, radiation pattern, current density, charge density, and radiation map of an open box with a dipole antenna insides the box and a frequency sweep from 0.5 GHz to 1.5 GHz with 3 examples.

 

Step 1: Create a new MOM Project.

Open 'New Fasant' and select 'File --> New' option.

Figure: New Project panel

 

Select 'MOM' option on the previous figure and start to configure the project.

 

Step 2: Create the geometry model. To obtain more information about geometries generation see section 4. Geometry Menu on GUI User-Guide.

Execute 'box' command writing it on the command line and sets the parameters as the next figure shows when command line ask for it.

 

Figure: Box parameters

 

Select box geometry on the main panel and execute 'explode' command writing it on the command line. Then the box will be transformed into 6 surfaces.

 

Figure: Box selection and 'explode' command

 

Select the top surface and execute 'delete' command. Then the surface will be removed from the geometry.

 

Figure: Surface selection and 'delete' command

 

Select all remaining surfaces and execute 'group' command.

Step 3: Set Simulation Parameters

Select 'Simulation --> Parameters' option on the menu bar and the following panel appears. Set the parameters as the next figure shows and save it.

Step 4: Set the source parameters. To obtain more information about sources and antennas see Antennas User-Guide.

Select 'Source --> Dipole --> Dipole Antenna' option and set the parameters as show the next figure. Then save the parameters and the dipole appears.

Step 5: Meshing the geometry model.

Select 'Meshing --> Parameters' to open the meshing configuration panel and then set the parameters as show the next figure. In order to obtain the shortest possible time for meshing, it is recommended to run the process of meshing with the number of physical processors available to the machine.

Step 6: Execute the simulation. In order to obtain the shortest possible time for calculating the results, it is recommended to run the process with the number of physical processors available to the machine.

Select 'Calculate --> Execute' option to open simulation parameters. Then select the number of processors as the next figure show.

 

Figure: Execute panel

 

Then click on 'Execute' button to starting the simulation. A panel appears to display execute process information.

Step 7: Show Results. To get more information about the graphics panel advanced options (clicking on right button of the mouse over the panel) see Annex 1: Graphics Advanced Options on GUI User Guide.

Select 'Show Results --> Far Field --> View Cuts' option to show the cuts of the observation directions options.

Selecting other values for the component, step, frequency or cut parameters and clicking on 'Add Series' button a new cut will be added to the selected parameters.

On 'Show Results --> Far Field' menu, other results are present such as 'View Cuts by Step' and 'View Cuts by Frequency' and this option display the values for one selected point for each step or frequency.

Select 'Show Results --> Radiation Pattern --> View Cuts' option to show the cuts of the radiation pattern options.

 

Figure: Radiation Pattern cuts

 

Selecting other values for the component, step, frequency or cut parameters and clicking on 'Add Series' button a new cut will be added to the selected parameters.

On 'Show Results --> Radiation Pattern' menu, other results are present such as 'View Cuts by Step' and 'View Cuts by Frequency' and this option display the values for one selected point for each step or frequency.

 

Select 'Show Results --> Radiation Pattern --> View 3D Pattern' option to show the cuts of the radiation pattern options.
