Example Overview

Calculate the transmission and reflection coefficients of a waveguide power divider.

Create the power divider to split equally the power between the two output ports while minimising any power reflected back to the source port. The power is split by placing a metal pin at the junction between the three waveguide sections. The model utilises symmetry to reduce memory requirements and calculation speed.
