QSTNoviembre a Febrero Two parallel or near parallel wires very close of each other must have their segments aligned [Ref.

By proper definition of dimension variables, it is even possible to optimize while manjal symmetry for example. Even if y ou know what you are doing. Then, if that variable length for example needs changing, it can be changed in one place in the model much like a software program.

This enables the designer to specify, say, for an OCF, both of the lengths of mamual segments as variables. On the other hand, some guidelines to simulate multiband and wideband antennas are provided.

EA4FSI-28T1 – Technical Articles

It is interesting to configure a high segment density in order for those generators to be very close to the apex. That is, the antenna maunal radiate all the power provided by the generator [Ref. In summary, its free, its professional, works great and once you penetrate its outer crust of seeming complexity, its simple to operate. In this manuap one can show the antenna, and, its full 3D, color coded in terms of dBi gain, visual view.


They must be placed 4enc2 a height over the ground of at least one fifth of the working wavelength:. This section shows other advices and rules of design not related to the previous sections: On the other hand, take into account that not all the most known antenna simulation programs among all the available as shareware are based on this algorithm.

In the simulations in free space, logically there is no ground. AntenneX Online Magazine, In order to avoid errors, it is of interest to observe the following general rules while designing simulation models:. Get the optimum final value mmanual the convergency 4enc2 shown if the next section. If the wire is not paralell to the ground, the height of the end nearest to the ground will be considered. 4bec2 coupled with the loss computation enable the approximate design of a matching network for said model system.

One way to simulate a connection of a vertical wire to the ground is by means of a virtual plane of at least eight radials [Ref. Cebik; and 2 start with the pre-configured “Back Yard Dipole” example included in the 4Nec2 package — and carefully study the input page that shows wires in X, Y, and Z coordinates, segments, and source.

Therefore, they do not contribute to the radiation of the antenna [Ref. This problem can be minimized making the diameter of the wires to change in a series of steps through several additional intermediate wires [Ref.

Types of ground and height of the wires. This enables one to add real transmission line loss for matching SWR of a real system to simulation. The ground 4ne2c simulated in the XY plane and the Z axis represents the height over the ground. However, one can model slightly elevated radial systems. The wires of a model can touch the perfect ground. If the model includes ground, it will 4mec2 located in the XY plane.


We will name Ns the number of segments making up a wire.

Antennex Monthly Columns – Antenna Modeling This free software does everything 4nsc2 more the commercial versions do! This displays the antenna and models its output. Regarding the minimum length of the segments Lsminin the different references checked the following restrictions related to the diameter of the wire and the wavelength have been found: Study and Experiences ESP.

W8IO Antenna Site – TANT and 4NEC2

With the fast ground type, NEC-2 uses a method based on complex reflection coefficients. If two wires of different diameters join in a point, the results of the simulations may not be precise [Ref. On the other hand, it is necessary to take into account that if the total number of segments in a model is very high, the maximum limit which some programs may impose can be reached [Ref.

Conventions for model representation.

The main attraction of 4NEC2 is the graphical entry of antenna models. You have to select View, then, select far field pattern. The following angles are defined: QST maunal, Febrero
