Performance evaluation of MoM-based wide-band EM simulation with adaptive frequency sampling and Stöer-Bulirsch algorithm

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to examine the convergence, offered accuracy and efficiency of the bisectional adaptive frequency sampling (AFS) scheme combined with the Stöer-Bulirsch (SB) algorithm as a tool for supporting frequency-domain method-of-moments (MoM) in broadband electromagnetic (EM) simulations.

Design/methodology/approach

The AFS and SB procedures have been interfaced with the MoM code, and then, an extensive parametric study has been carried out to explore the performance of the numerical solution for the test problems of reconstructing frequency responses of the wire radiator and scatterer, respectively, over at least a decade bandwidth.

Findings

The results give evidence for the efficiency of the overall approach and its capability of constructing the approximation of multi-resonant responses with sharp resonant peaks from a substantially reduced number of EM samples (data points) compared to that of conventional uniform sampling.

Originality/value

Results of the study offer thorough insight into the performance of the AFS-SB technique, and the data given in this paper may be helpful in selecting the convergence criterion and the tolerance for the AFS-SB algorithm to achieve a possibly economical broadband simulation technique.
