It really depends on the problem. This is similar to oversampling: a dense mesh does not always give better results. With the same correct modellization but different solution setup you may endup with different results. To be safe i always try some different convergence criteria to see if the results are the same.

I assume, that you work with a simulator that uses the finite element method (for example hfss).
One of the points of the finite elemnt method is, that you never get any absolute correct values as a result.
The calculation is based on differential equations solved in a small finite space of your object. The object can be div

I think your main mistake (which is very common actually) is that in hfss in case of Microstrip lines, the port size changes the results. So you must adjust the port size to get an input impedance of 50 ohms, which is actually not a very pleasant task. also you should check the convergence and increase the maximum number of passes in case o

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
