Hi everyone, im new to this group so i hope you can help me...
I've been working with HFSS for a while now, designing RF coils for MRI. The structure is pretty simple - a single turn coil with a coax feed. the feed is blocked by a copper block on its port end, and the inner coax connects to the coil... (coil radius=7cm) the problem is that i keep getting negative real part for my impedance in low freq. (around 100MHz).
Happend to any of you? what's that supposed to mean in HFSS?

thanks in advance
Alex

Greetings Lechko:

I am not a HFSS user, but negative impedances in other simulators often indicate you are sampling at physical point that is located at or near a peak in a standing wave on the line. Constructive interference there can create a voltage greater than that which is applied. This is an indication of an impedance mismatch at the sampled frequency.

Or, it could be something else :lol:

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
