Adding a Magnetic Dipole Source

Apply a magnetic dipole that can be either an electric ring current or a magnetic line current that represents an elementary dipole element with a specified orientation, magnitude and phase.

  1. On the Source/Load tab, in the Ideal Source group, click the  Magnetic Dipole Source icon.

    Figure 1. The Create Magnetic Dipole Source dialog.
  2. Specify the magnitude of the source using one of the following:
    • To specify the magnitude as the product of the loop current and loop area, click Electric ring current.
      • In the Magnitude of IA (Am^2) field, specify the current in Am2.
    • To specify the magnitude as the product of the dipole length and magnetic current, click Magnetic line current.
      • In the Magnitude of Iml (Vm) field, specify the voltage in Vm.
  3. In the Phase (degrees) field, specify the phase of the current.
  4. In the Position field, specify where the source is to be placed.
  5. In the Orientation field, specify the orientation of the source.
  6. In the Label field, add a unique label for the magnetic dipole source.
  7. Click the Create button to create the magnetic dipole source and to close the dialog.
