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 cover some basic concepts which are helpful in designing an antenna. We will demonstrate the creation of the antenna element using Ansys HFSS antenna toolkit. We will also cover how to add a parametric sweep for a variable created in HFSS design. 

This course  is organized as below: 

  • Antenna Creation and Simulation Steps
  • Workshop on 3.6 GHz Patch Antenna Element and Quiz

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

In this course, we will cover the features and uses of the HFSS 3D component. We will use a wire dipole antenna and a rectangular patch antenna to create a 1x2 and a 1x8 array. This course provides detailed steps to create an antenna array from a single unit by using different methods such as the Explicit array method and finite array wizard domain decomposition method (FAWDDM).

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, how to steer the beam of the antenna array at a particular angle with the help of a parametric sweep.

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.
