I need simulate an antenna in HFSS for RFID. The internal impedance of IC at 915MHz is 12.8-j248 (NXP UCODE7). This is a serie impedance.
To simulate this impedance I use a Lumped port with equivalent parallel resistance Rp ~ 4.837K and a capacitance of 0.7pF in parallel using a lumped RLC. Both in parallel connected to a (...)

Yes, you see almost real impedance of an antenna at it's center frequency, e.g. a dipole with length of lambda/2.
An antenna is a distributed device, it has no physical L or C. In so far the quoted |Z| equation (not valid for Z) describes only a possible antenna equivalent circuit in a limited frequency range, not an actual antenna. As for the e

P.S my dipole is precisely 50 OHM and so is the coaxial cable so no need for impedance transformation. I only need to eliminate the coax shield currents.
How did you achieve that ? ... dipoles are 75 Ohms by nature ( folded ones 300 Ohms) ... what impedance matching did you do ?

A DNA dipole is a charge voltage and as such the load impedance must be extremely high on the amplifier so as not to discharge the dipole as well as low capacitance relative to the sensor electrodes and medium.
A suitable choice would be any good low noise JFET Preamplifier design.

3/2 lambda may work, but you don't get 4:1 impedance ratio anymore.

Not quite. That is contradictory.
For a dipole you can choose 1/4, 1/2 and 1 wavelength. Resonance is non reactive just below theoretical due to fringing and thickness.

Antennas can be of any length related to wavelength. A good antenna must have an impedance matched to its feed line, and its radiation pattern is selected according to its use. Half-wave dipoles were found optimum in both aspects. In fact, 0.47 wavelength is the optimum dipole length.

Anyhow, during a part of the measurement are you measuring S11 for one antenna element and RF ground do then only consist of your cable shield?
