Title: NEC2 PLANE WAVE ILLUMINATION
Post by: AUGUSTINEYELLU on December 28, 2013, 06:33:20 AM
I just started using plane wave ex in NEC2. My goal is to illuminate an antenna, say a simple dipole with a plane wave and compute the antenna impedance. I know via reciprocity I could just analyze the same antenna in the transmit case and obtain this metric. I however want to analyze the antenna in the receive case and then compare my results with the transmit case. One problem is that I don't know the magnitude of the PW incident on the antenna in NEC2 since I do no see an option for specifying the field strength in the NEC2 EX card. My receive antenna in this case is terminated in an impedance. Any suggestions will be much appreciated.

Thank you
