View Currents

This option allows to visualize the induced currents on the geometry, classified by parametric and frequency steps. Click on Show Results - View Currents to open the window shown in next figure:

Figure 1. Currents density diagram

The following elements are available within this panel:

  • Left color legend it shows the magnitude and range of values of the represented Current Density.
  • Step and Frequency to select the results from the available files to plot the currents.
    • Step specify the parametric step when a parametric simulation has been run.
    • Frequency specify the desired frequency.
  • Magnitude The Current Density may be represented in natural or dBs magnitudes.
    • dB The current density is represented in logarithmic scale, given in dB-Amperes per meter.
    • nat The current density is represented in natural scale, given in Amperes per meter.
  • Field Component To specify the component of the current density to plot. Only one component may be selected:
    • X Plot the X component of current density.
    • Y Plot the Y component of current density.
    • Z Plot the Z component of current density.
    • Total Plot the total current density, which is the combination of the X, Y and Z components.
  • Filtering Range Use this section to skip results that are outside the desired range.
    • Enable Filtering The filter only is applied when this check box is selected.
    • Max To specify the maximum value of the range.
    • Min To specify the minimum value of the range.
    • Filter Click on this button to update the results filtering.
  • Bottom Options Below the currents diagram, the following options are included:
    • Options Disable this option to hide the left menu and visualize just the currents distribution.
    • Show Axis Enable this option to show the coordinate axes.
    • Show Geometry Enable this option to visualize the meshed geometry together the current density.
    • Antenna Results Enable this option to visualize the antenna currents or disable it to hide them. It is only available when a radome has been analyzed.
    • Save as To export the current representation as an image file.
