Creating the Port

Define a wire port on the feed pin to excite the dipole. A voltage source will be added to this port.

Note: A port is a mathematical representation of where energy can enter (source) or leave a model (sink). Use a port to add sources and discrete loads to a model.
  1. Select the wire where the port is to be added.
    1. In the model tree, select Bent_dipole.
    2. In the details tree, select one of the wires of Bent_dipole.
  2. Open the Create Wire Port dialog using one of the following workflows:
    • On the Source/Load tab, in the Ports group, click the  Wire Port icon.
    • In the details tree, a right-click context menu is available on the wire. From the drop-down list, click Create port > Wire Port.
  3. Under Place port on, click Segment.
