about the convergence message in hfss v9.0 :()
1. why the 6th and 8th pass gave Delta S in terems of N/A? what does N/A mean?
2. it seems Delta S becomes larger when pass Numbers increasing, I don't know if it's reasonable since I feel Delta S should get smaller with increasing pass Numbers solved.
Thanks in advance!

You probably don't need deltaS that low. It defaults to .02, so unless you need some insane accuracy, you don't need .001. Try setting it at .01.
convergence is just when the deltaS gets below that value. Try setting it to deltaS=.01 and then forcing it to do 2 or 3 consecutive converged passes or something rather than a really low deltaS for (I

Do someone have good skill to simulate in bad computer's hardware???
when i set the higher adative frequency in hfss, the error message show "lambda refinement will create large starting mesh". But i set lower adative frequency, my solution will not convergence. is it hardware's problem??someone kindly help me.

the simulation will terminate when either of these 2 criteria is met.
if you set the maximum number of passes to 6 and the model does not converge within 6 passes the simulation will stop regardless.
the maximum delta s defines the convergence criteria, if you use 0.02 it means that when the difference between two passes is less than 2% th

Yes, the waveport in hfss can have lossy dielectric and/or good (non-perfect) conductor.
my guess for your problem:
1. 2xTsub is hardly "large" enough, check convergence w.r.t. all the sizes that you set to be around 2xTsub.
2. make sure you understand the unit of the hfss answer correctly.

Just a question on eigenmodes. I have noticed the following: when I simulate a cavity with a material with out losses I get the frequencies of the modes very fast, with high accuracy and with convergence in 2 3 steps.On the other hand when I replace with a material with losses, I can hardly get the convergence after 30 iterations or more and if I i

hfss will optimize the mesh to reach convergence criteria at the solution frequency and eventually solve the field at that particular frequency only. When you choose "interpolation sweep", the rest of the frequencies are interpolated b

Yes, convergence is not an issue. I believe that the way the phase is handled by the simulator might be the problem.

in order to be sure that there is no error with the meshing, you should check the convergence curve. If it tends toward a constant value (~0.02 for instance), there should be no errors.
Are you sure about this that if convergence curve is straight linei.e it has a constant value then there will be no errors or differ

for most applications ΔS=0.02 is quite adequate. Decreasing the ΔS will result in a more complex mesh and more simulation time.
Maximum number of passes of about 6 to 15 is enough.
You can see the convergence data of your design by right clicking on the setup in project manager and selecting "convergence" from the pop-up menu. If it has

In your design go to Results>Solution Data. A window with differece tabs pop up. One tab is convergence.
There you can find convergence, in my opinion is easy to look for the plot.
I have to say that in the Analysis Setup I always select : Options>Adaptative Options>Minimum Converged passes: 2. (Maybe it is by default)
