Model Infinite Ground Plane for Unbalanced Antennas
This example shows how to model an infinite ground plane and calculate fundamental antenna parameters for unbalanced antennas.
Create Antenna on Infinite Ground Plane
Create a patch microstrip antenna on a ground plane of infinite length.
p = patchMicrostrip('GroundPlaneLength', inf)
p = patchMicrostrip with properties: Length: 0.0750 Width: 0.0375 Height: 0.0060 Substrate: [1x1 dielectric] GroundPlaneLength: Inf GroundPlaneWidth: 0.0750 PatchCenterOffset: [0 0] FeedOffset: [-0.0187 0] Conductor: [1x1 metal] Tilt: 0 TiltAxis: [1 0 0] Load: [1x1 lumpedElement]
