Defining an Infinite Ground Plane

Define a perfectly conducting (PEC) infinite ground plane. An infinite ground plane is an efficient method to model a large ground plane compared to a discretised, finite sized ground plane.

Define the infinite ground plane.
  1. On the Construct tab, in the Structures group, click the  Planes/Arrays icon. From the drop-down list, select  Plane / Ground.
  2. On the Plane / Ground dialog, from the Definition method drop-down list, select Perfect electric (PEC) ground plane at Z=0.
    Figure 1. The Plane / Ground dialog.

  3. Click OK to create the infinite plane and to close the dialog.
