This course is part of 5G Base Station Antenna Simulation Certification. Finish all the courses associated with the Simulation Certification to earn the digital credential.

In this course, we will introduce the 5G cross dipole antenna and its array. We will illustrate concepts like “dual polarization,” “spatial diversity,” “multipath,”’ etc. In this course, we will cover the creation of the 3D component of the 5G cross dipole antenna element and the creation of an array using the finite array wizard method. We will also show you how to steer the beam of the antenna array at a particular angle with the help of a parametric sweep.
This course is organized as below: 

  • Introduction to Basic Concepts 
  • Cross Dipole Dual Polarized Antenna Elements 
  • Steps to Create a 3D Component from the 5G Antenna Element 
  • Simulation of an Array of 5G Antenna Elements Using the Finite Wizard Method 
  • Workshop on Steering the Radiation Beam for a Range of Scanning Angles and Quiz

Finally, the course wraps up with a quiz. Let's get started!

This course provides the platform analysis using Ansys HFSS SBR+ workflow and detailed steps on the creation of the electrically large platform with the antenna mast. We will use the 5G cross dipole array model which is already created in the previous course. We will also compare the performance of the standalone antenna array with antenna array installed on a mast.

In this course, we will cover the landscape simulation to analyze the effect of reflected radiated fields. We will show the import of map data into HFSS through Spaceclaim. Then we will place one transmitting antenna and one receiving antenna from the antenna toolkit to analyze the effect of buildings, roads, and other obstructions such a large environment. We will introduce EMIT Datalink for system link analysis.

This course introduces the multiphysics electrothermal simulation workflow of a base station antenna array using Icepak which is integrated inside AEDT. We will use the rectangular patch antenna from the antenna toolkit (ATK). This course gives detailed information on how to use the post-processing tool inside of the Icepak to analyze the thermal profile and heat flow.
