5.2.5.1. Type Summary

Description

A lumped RLC circuit element that is implemented as an enforced frequency dependent impedance between two points, where the RLC components can be in either a parallel or a series configuration. The lumped RLC element is implemented for both discrete and GAWE frequency sweeps (RF3p).

Simulator Applicability

3D Driven Frequency (RF3p)

Parameters

Label – A unique name that identifies the solid. (ISolid/Label)

Coordinate System – The coordinate system in which the solid is defined. Defaults to working coordinate system at time of creation. (ISolid/CoordinateSystem)

Include in Simulation – Indicates if the solid is included in the simulation.  If False, the solid is also not shown in the view. (ISolid/Include)

Visible – Indicates if the solid is shown in the view. (ISolid/Visible)

Location -

Start - [LENGTH] - Start point of the lumped RLC circuit element defined in the solid's coordinate system.

End - [LENGTH] - End point of the lumped RLC circuit element defined in the solid's coordinate system.

Circuit Values -

Parallel - Specify as true for a parallel RLC configuration and false for a series RLC configuration.

Resistance - [Ohms] - Circuit resistance component value. To exclude this component, set the value to 0. Negative values are not allowed.

Inductance - [H] - Circuit inductance component value. To exclude this component, set the value to 0. Negative values are not allowed.

Capacitance - [F] - Circuit capacitance component value. To exclude this component, set the value to 0. Negative values are not allowed.

Example(s)

User Interface Button

Command Details

Mouse click order is:
1. Start
2. End
See command hint for detailed instructions.

Requirements

The start and end locations must not be the same.

If the start or end location is placed on a port, the surface the port is assigned to must be metal.

May not be used with symmetry planes.
