Complex Rectangular Filter Design Using Hybrid Finite Element Method and Modified Multimodal Variational Formulation
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 44, 55-66, 2013
Abstract
We hybridize vector Finite Element Method (FEM) and a Modified Multimodal Variational Formulation (MMVF) to the accurate and fast design of complex isotropic rectangular filters. The MMVF is applied to the full-wave description in the rectangular waveguides while the FEM characterizes waves in the arbitrarily shaped discontinuities. The proposed hybrid method is applied to the full-wave analysis of circuits with great practical interest (i.e., cross-shaped iris and multimode filters), thus improving CPU time and memory storage against several full-wave FEM based Computer Aided Design (CAD) tools (i. e. HFSS High Frequency Structural Simulator). The performances of the proposed hybrid method are validated with experimental results and HFSS simulations.
