Modeling Infinite Ground Plane in Antennas and Arrays
This example illustrates modeling of antennas and arrays with infinite ground plane. The main advantage of modeling the ground plane as infinite is that the ground plane is not meshed. This helps in speeding up the solution. The structure is modelled using the method of images. Several antenna elements in Antenna Toolbox� have a ground plane as part of the structure. For other elements, the ground plane can be introduced by placing them in front of a reflector.
