I have a question
Is there a magnetic field inside a perfect conductor (I know from basic courses and pozar's book that inside aperfect condcutor there are no fields)
but if there is no field inside the condcuotr , how does the current flow inside the conductor incase of DC

If there is a tangential electric field just outside the metal, according to boundary conditions, the equal tangential electric field should exist just inside the metal too.

With a perfect conductor at DC, the angle between the conductor and the field is 90 degrees.
By "at DC", do you mean a direct current flowing through the wire? If your talking about the E field (electric field) that causes this DC current, then the angle between the perfect conductor differential length (...)

why does my simulation work with coax excitation even without any outer conductor? And will the use of a pec-outer-conductor influence my results in comparison to these without any outer conductor?
If you define your radiation boundary where your coaxial is outside the boundary, you don't need to define the outer conductor.

perfect E means simply that the E-Field is normal to the surface -> it simulates a perfect conductor.
To assign a surface to gnd you have to use for example a lumped port and connect the line (you will be asked for) from the conductor to gnd.
If you use wave ports you don't have to do anything.

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.

Anyway, it was confusing to me that your structure is *below* the ground plane not above it. Since the copper forms a nearly perfect conductor, there is no need for an air box above it. You can delete all that air and instead put it below the microstrip, where there is only a little bit of air now and more
