The Run ALL Command
Once the frequencies, the environment, the geometry of the structure, the excitation, and the points of observation of the radiated field have been set, AN-SOF is ready to execute the calculations. First, the current distribution on the wire segments will be calculated, which allows us to obtain the input impedance when we have a transmitting antenna. Later, the far and near fields can be calculated from the currents in the segments.
The Run ALL (F10) command allows us to run the calculation of the current distribution and the near and far fields sequentially and automatically. Go to main menu > Run > Run ALL to run this command, Fig. 1, or click on the Run ALL button on the toolbar.
If the near field is not required, the calculation can only be run for currents and far fields by clicking on the Run/Run Currents and Far-Field (F11) command. This command is also available on the toolbar.
If the far field is not required, the calculation can only be run for currents and near fields by clicking on the Run/Run Currents and Near-Field (F12) command. This command is also available on the toolbar.
The currents, far and near fields can be computed separately as it is explained in the next articles >.
