H Plane Tee


The objective of the session was to create, simulate and analyze an H
Plane, which is commonly used as microwave device, using the Ansoft
HFSS Design Environment.





they are difficult to realize where high precision is required at high frequencies.Wave guide Tee junctions are usually used to split line power into two lines or combine power. it is clear that the magic tee is the combination of the both E-plane and H-plane. Arm 1 and 2 are sometimes called the side or collinear arms. Arm 3 form as H-plane tee with Arm 1 and 2. 8. But due to complicated structure. From the figure. Arm 4 forms E-plane with Arms 1 and 2. Waveguide magic tee plays an important role in microwave and millimeter wave engineering and especially in mono pulse antenna systems. coming from two lines into single one.3 Magic Tee Specification .

Height = 50 mm . 8. Width = 50 mm Procedure The steps followed for creating Magic Tee are as under: .4 Length = 20 mm .

Magic Tee of required dimensions 2. First. arm was duplicated around z axis about 90o and getting three arms and by default they are named as arm_1 and arm_2 automatically by software (HFSS). . top arm of the magic tee was created by creating the box of dimensions of 50mm height. Creating shapes For creating magic tee shape. 2. we followed these steps: 1. 20 mm width and 50mm length and naming it as “Arm”. Then using the symmetry. all the arms are united to get the magic tee shape. Assigning Boundaries All the other faces are assigned boundaries conditions as Perfect E. T h e n Duplicated Arms Arm using the Boolean unite tool. 3.1.

Assigning Excitations For excitation. top face of the “Arm” was assigned as excited port and named it as “p2”. Creating solution setup . Analysis Setup 1. Wave port Excitation for Port 2 4.Boundaries Conditions as Perfect E 3.

Model validation and analyzing Model validation was done to check any contradictions with the assigning boundaries or excitation errors.0 GHz and 1001 count.Solution setup was created by setting the solution frequency of 4 G Hz with 5 maximum number of passes and 0. 2. Adding frequency sweep Frequency sweep was added to solution setup.
