Adding a Voltage Source

Add a voltage source to the port of the monopole.

  1. On the Source/Load tab, in the Sources on Ports group, click the  Voltage Source icon.

The radiated power must be 1 Watt for this example. Since the input impedance for the monopole is not known, the voltage can not be changed to scale the radiated power.

  1. Ensure WirePort1 is selected in the drop-down list and use the default voltage settings.

  2. Click Create to define the voltage source and to close the dialog.
