Biconical Antenna

Model Description

A biconical antenna consists of an arrangement of two conical conductors, which is driven by potential, charge, or an alternating magnetic field (and the associated alternating electric current) at the vertex. The conductors have a common axis and vertex. The two cones face in opposite directions.

This example demonstrates biconical antenna analysis in EMCoS Studio. Frequency range: 20 MHz – 300 MHz. Solution is obtained by Method of Moments (MoM) in EM Analysis Type.
