1000 Threads found on edaboard.com: Dipole Impedance
I have made s simple dipole with lumped port at center and variable air box size.
The impedance changes quite a bit versus air box size.
I think HFSS recommends at least 1/4 lambda from antenna element.
Zreal changes from 82 ohm to 95 ohm when size increases from 1/4 to 1 lambda at 1GHz.
The minimum Zreal at 82 ohm is when size is exac

This is the simplest design one can ever do in HFSS 12.
I wanted to test a simple flat dipole of length 33.5mm and 62.3mm
These are resonating antenna and are half the wavelength.
The dipole is in air, NO substrate.
The impedance of a half wavelength resonating dipole is ALWAYS 73 ohms plus whatever is (...)

I agree with a_aziz and loucy. Simulating a half-wave dipole in hfss showed that a radiation boundary distance from the structure has significant influence on the dipole impedance, while not so much on radiation pattern. Anyway, put your rad. boundary as far as possible (2 lambda) to get good results on both...

You probably have found the problem by now.
Yoiur air box is too small, it should be at least 1/4 lambda.
Whne I made the box 200 x 200 x 200 mm, impedance dropped down to 83.5 + j*12.5.
This is still far from theortically 73 + j*42.
I made a circular dipole and it was the same problem.

How do you measure "mutial impedance" of antennas? In network analysis, mutual impedance involves a driving current source and open circuit voltage measurement, which is hard to implement in RF frequency range.

The impedance is determined by the physical dimension ratio of the diameters of the two surfaces across the dielectric as well as the dielectric constant. impedance is independent of length. The cable should have a model number printed on it. If not and the center conductor is solid the impedance is probably 75 ohms.

If you want to measure the input impedance (S11) of the dipole, you'll have to use (or design) a balun. The dipole is a balanced antenna and cannot be measured as a single-ended device, e.g. a resistor, etc. Once the balun is ready, the "easiest" way is to design a TRL calibration kit and enter its data into the network analyzer.

dipole is a balanced antenna and you need a balun (BALanced to UNbalanced) to feed it.
There are a lot of types of baluns that you can use:
After that just connect the unbalanced end to the Port 1 of your Network Analyzer and measure S11 of the antenna.

The impedance of a microstrip dipole is affected by the substrate.

Technically, antenna impedance is the ratio at any given point in the antenna of voltage to current at that point. Depending upon height above ground, the influence of surrounding objects and other factors, our quarter wave antenna with a near perfect ground exhibits a nominal input impedance of around 36 ohms.

The attenuation of a coaxial cable is the lowest when impedance is about 77 ohm. Further a dipole antenna has a real impedance about 73 ohm. Therefore for CATV, where attenuation is important, a cable of 75 ohm seems a right choice.

When a plane is too close to a dipole as in your
antenna, this is shorted out. This means the power
that is getting into the antenna is very small.
Although the power is small the directivity is based
on that small amount of energy, this is based on the
power effectively delivered to the antenna.
