Numerical electromagnetic modeling of a small aperture helical-fed reflector antenna
The Numerical Electromagnetics code (NEC-2) is a computer code for analyzing the electromagnetic response of an arbitrary structure consisting of wires and surfaces in free space or over a ground plane. The analysis is accomplished by the numerical solution of integral equations for induced currents. The excitation may be an incident plane wave or a voltage source on a wire, while the output may include current and charge density, electric or magnetic field in the vicinity of the structure, and radiated fields. NEC-2 includes several features not contained in NEC-1, including an accurate method for modeling grounds, based on the Sommerfeld integrals, and an option to modify a structure without repeating the complete solution.
