This command plots the amplitude and phase of the near field computed for each observation point of the simulation geometry. Several observation points (such us lines, planes and so on) and frequencies can be plotted in the same graphic. To plot a graph, the user can select the field component, the step, the frequency, the observation, the order and the antenna. A new graph will be plotted with the button ' Add Series'. In the case that the user has set up a parametrized geometry, it is possible to select the step to visualize the results for.

It is also possible to delete a series that is selected by the user from the list with the 'Remove Series'. The display option also allows changing the color of the series and display points. The buttons ' Import Series' and ' Export Series' are used for importing and exporting the selected series in 'List of Series' to a text file.

This panel displays a plot with the results and several options for adding and removing extra series from the plot.

When initially open, the panel will display a default series in the plot that will represent the measurements for a particular component, step, frequency, and observation point, against every possible frequency that has been simulated. More series can be added, by selecting a component, step, observation, order and antenna in the control panel that appears on the left side of the plot.

  • Component: the field component to inspect. Select one of the possible values Ex, Ey, Ez, Etotal.
  • Step: the parametric step to select. These should have been defined prior to the calculation when designing the simulation.
  • Frequency: select one frequency to inspect.
  • Observation: select one of the observation series.
  • Order: select a particular order.
  • Antenna: select a particular antenna.
