WIPL-D Pro offers easy parametric modelling and fast simulation of waveguide structures in general. Such purely metallic structures require very low number of unknowns.
The abilities of the tool are demonstrated in this application note for simulation of the array antenna with large number of waveguide open-end elements.
Owing to efficient modelling by using canonical BoR objects, simulations were carried by using very low number of unknowns. The hardware platform is every day work PC or laptop, without the need for using any expensive hardware. Usage of two symmetry planes yields simulation time in seconds per frequency point.
