Optimization of a Reflector Antenna System

Combining solver technologies

Today increasingly complex systems can be simulated with 3D electromagnetic solver technology. The problem is that these models can be quite large and cumbersome to deal with. Systems typically consist of several components, which are designed and optimized separately before being combined to form a system. Certain numerical methods or solvers might produce an accurate answer more quickly than others. Thus the possibility to easily change solver technologies or even compare them for the same design is an advantage.

With this whitepaper, learn about:

  • A modular approach using the System Assembly and Modeling (SAM) of CST Studio Suite® to optimize a reflector antenna system in a piecewise manner
  • How a similar accuracy to that of the full system simulation can be attained with the modular approach with a much shorter simulation time and using less computational resources
