Electromagnetic simulation has dramatically improved the design of a wide range of wireless systems by making it possible for engineers to simulate their operation and predict their performance without the need for building and testing of prototypes. But while a design concept can generally be simulated in far less time than it can be built or tested, simulation by itself still frequently requires modeling of a large number of alternatives without any assurance of achieving an optimized design. Researchers at the Computational Electromagnetics Research Laboratory at McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, have addressed this challenge by developing an efficient method for optimizing the design of wireless systems based on sensitivity analysis of the scattering parameters (S-parameters).
SAR and feedpoint impedance have been measured and FDTD computed for a spherical bowl and a l/2 dipole at 835 MHz according to procedures outlined by IEEE SCC 34, WG 1. Good agreement between measurement and FDTD computation was found both for the SAR distribution in the bowl and for the antenna feedpoint impedance.
