STEPS FOR SIMULATION using IE3d
IE3d Tutorial complete foir antenna
Following showing the IE3D steps for the microstrip antenna design
STEP1: Run MGRID. Select File->New command. MGRID shows you the Basic Parameters dialog.
STEP2: Length group, select the Unit as “mm”. In the Meshing Parameters group, change the Highest Frequency (Fmax) to 5to8 GHz and the Cells per Wavelength (Ncell) to 20.
STEP3: Enter “Top Surface, Ztop”, Enter the Dielectric Constant, Epsr = 2.4 to 4.4MGRID is ready for geometry input.
STEP4: We are going to build a rectangle .Select Entity->Rectangle. MGRID will prompt the parameters.
STEP5: Enter Length and Width in the Rectangle Properties group.
STEP6: Now we have to select probe feed to patch from entity.
STEP7: We have to select rectanglization to define different meshing parameters.
STEP8: Then we have to save the format to do meshing and simulation .Then the ultimate step is simulation Select Process->Simulate command. The Simulation Setup dialog
STEP9: We have to define the parameter of the graph.
STEP10: We have to define the parameter of display.
Step11: Now the following pic shows . MGRID will invoke IE3D to perform the simulation in the background. It takes seconds to finish.
Step12: To see s-parameter graph we have to select display >> s-parameter.
