Application of EPML/TLM to UWB antenna analysis
Held, SebastianLSF; Neinhüs, Markus; Beyer, AdalbertLSF


Antenna analysis with Transmission Line Matrix (TLM) method requires the use of an absorbing boundary condition in order to simulate a free space environment. This absorbing boundary condition is realized by the EPML (extended perfectly matched layer). This paper demonstrates the capability of this simulation method for practical broadband antenna design. Therefore a bow-tie and vivaldi antenna are analyzed and numerical as well as experimental results are introduced and discussed.
