Solution Setup Using Ansys HFSS — Lesson 3

Solution frequency and frequency sweep assignment is the backbone of simulation in Ansys HFSS. Solution frequency is used to create an FEM mesh on-design in HFSS. This lesson teaches how to create a solution setup and frequency sweep for a design. It illustrates various parameters which affect the accuracy and resolution of the simulation.

This lesson consists of one lecture and two workshops.

This lecture covers theoretical aspects of solution types, frequency sweep, adaptive meshing, maximum number of passes, delta S, accuracy, resolution, etc.

Workshop 3.1

This workshop covers the simulation aspects of an SMA stub with auto solution setup. The outline for this workshop is as follows:
open AEDT >> open SMA coax design >> add analysis setup >> add analysis sweep >> simulate it >> view S parameter

Workshop 3.2

This workshop covers the simulation aspects of a bandpass filter with a broadband solution setup. The outline for this workshop is as follows:
open AEDT >> open BP filter design >> simulate it with existing mesh settings >> change solution setup to broadband >> simulate it >> compare two results
