I am wondering if I can define finite substrate in ie3d. I find the default substrate size is too big. Thank you.

Im trying to model a patch antenna on a finite ground and substrate.I followed the manual in creating the finite substrate.But after the meshing when i try and simulate, it gives me an error message.

The difference, between simulations using infinite substrate and finite substrate with ground, is that you get nulls all around in 90° because there is no energy beyond the ground. And No back lobes that exist in finite substrate with ground plane.
there is differenc in the (...)

It seems to me the infinite substrate explanation is counterintuitive. Shounldn't we expect the effect of finite substrate to be more significant when the antenna is spaced further away from the ground? But ghb described that results for 100mil spacing are bettern than those of 30mils.
More details of the design might be (...)

1. What antenna is it? If it is a patch antenna with a reasonable size substrate, the radiation efficiency should normally between 50% to 90% in the resonance bandwidth. Surface wave is an important source of loss to efficiency. ie3d is normally quite accurate in predicting the radiaiton efficiency for such a case. If it is an an

On ie3d, the scattering field is defined as the field scattered instead of reflected. When you define infinite substrate, there is scattered field and reflected field. Reflected field is a plane wave when the incident wave is planewave. Scattered field is a spherical wave.
In some sense, if you model a patch on (...)

I checked your model. It is ok. The pattern is not complete omni-directional. However, given the structure, it is like that.
There is a dip at theta = 90 degrees. It is caused by the infinite extended substrate. If you use finite substrate, the dip will be gone while the overall pattern shape is still (...)

It should be due to the meshing density is not large enough or meshing may not be fully aligned. Meshing alignment is very important for finite dielectrics modeling. Also, we did not take into account of the Er of the finite substrate in estimating the waveguide wavelength. The Er of the finite (...)

It ist just 2 steps:
1. Define the dielectric type and remove the infinite subsrate in Basic Parameters.
2. Draw the shape of the finite dielectrics and define it as a finite dielectric call in Adv Edit->Define finite Dielectric Call.

1. You need to change the connector dia according to requirement.
2. Change feed impedance to 100 in Modua
For finite gnd and substrate just draw the entire feed including inner and outer conductor of the coaxial probe.

It is simple. For example, you have draw the finite ground (or define an infinite ground) on z = 0. You also define the patch on z = 3 mm. You want to build a shorting plate from 3 to 0. What you can do is to select an edge of 2 vertices on the patch at z = 3. Select EDIT->ADD VIA ON EDGES command. Enter the END Z-COORDINATE = 0 an

I don't see serious problem in your structure. I tried the finite ground plane model on it. It is slightly different from the infinite ground model. The difference is mainly due to the fact you chose very thin substrate for 10 GHz. In fact, there might be 2nd order mode in the transmission line due to the thick (...)

the feko online/user manual explains how to define an edge port.The example folder of feko also contains a few examples for an edge fed rectangular patch antenna.
That is true but only for inifinite substrates. There are are no SEP examples with an edge port for a finite substrate!

2. At this time, finite dielectrics is not implemented into the ie3dLIBRARY interface. You can only define them in MGRID.

In ie3d help, you can find how to define finite ground plane.
In the basic parameter menu, use sigma=0 for Ztop=0; it means that there is no infinite ground. Then you can define all the layer you need (please see the manual of ie3d).
