hi every body
I am going to design a planar square 4 element array of hellical antennas in x band. anybody can help me to draw a helical antenna in HFSS simply?
and is there a better simulator for this kind of antenna?
another question, can HFSS gather data to form a array from a single antenna run or I should export the s-parameters to another program?
thanx a lot
a planar square antenna should be no problem at all with HFSS. Just sketch out the boundaries and corners of your antenna on a piece of paper. Create rectangles accordingly and unite them. If you are more familiar with AutoCAD, you can draw it in there, export the file into a sat file and import that into HFSS.
HFSS is fine for this kind of antenna
