Adding a Far Field Source

Apply a radiation pattern of an antenna and use as an impressed source at a specified point in space.

  1. On the Source/Load tab, in the Equivalent Sources group, click the  Far Field Source icon.

    Figure 1. The Create Far Field Source dialog.
  2. In the Magnitude scale factor field, specify the scaling factor.
  3. In the Phase offset (degrees) field, specify the phase (in degrees) to be added to the phase of the fields.
  4. In the Field data field, specify the field data to be used to define the far field source. The field data must be a far field specified using the spherical coordinate system.
  5. In the Position field, specify where the source is to be placed.
  6. In the Orientation field, specify the orientation of the source.
  7. In the Label field, add a unique label for the far field point source.
  8. Click the Create button to create the far field point source and to close the dialog.
