DESCRIPTION

Design a birdcage coil in Comsol

TRANSCRIPT

  • A Bird-Cage Coil at 127.74 MHz

  • The bird-cage geometry:8-rungsEach rung split in 2 with (potential) tuning capacitors in between

  • Each flap represents a simple circuit or port element such as a 50 Ohm feed or a tuning capacitor.

    (Standard finite element modeling approach for RF and Microwave components)

  • The bird-cage geometry as seen in the COMSOL user interface.

  • A section of surrounding air is added by enclosing the bird-cage geometry in a sphere.

  • The only material property is air (permittivity=1, conductivity=0, and permeability=1)

  • The sphere has a Scattering boundary conditions = non- reflecting.A refined model would, in addition, add a Perfectly Matched Layer for more precise absorption.

  • The copper stripes are modeled as perfect electric conductors.This is the simplest possible model and neglects losses but includes field discontinuity.

    Several more advanced models are possible in COMSOL:- transition boundary conditions (simple field jump discontinuity)- slit boundary conditions (double field jump)

  • Input Port #1, 5000 V and 50 Ohm

  • Input Port #2, 5000 V and 50 OhmPhase shift: 90 degreesCan also enter phase in radians, without giving units.

  • Tuning ElementsHere capacitances (impedances/reactances) at 2.2 pF

    Modeled as so called Port Elements

  • Frequency inputThis parameter (and any other) can be swept

  • Finite element mesh:1.4M Degrees of Freedom (dofs)230k elements

    Second-order vector finite elements

    Solution time:

    ~15 minutes on a PC with 4 cores (64 bit OS)~ 24 minutes on a PC with 2 cores (64 bit OS)

    Memory used: ~3.5 GB

  • Cross-section of the mesh

  • Mesh on copper stripes

  • Log10 plot of |B|Arrows: B-field, normalized

  • Z_in_1=50 Ohm pure resistiveZ_in_2=50 Ohm pure resistiveFeed at 12 is listeningS-parameter: S11 (non-db scale)

  • Z_in_1=50 Ohm pure resistiveZ_in_2=50 Ohm pure resistiveFeed at 12 is listeningS-parameter: S21 (db scale)

  • Z_in_1=50-jX(2.2pF) OhmZ_in_2=50-jX(2.2pF) OhmFeed at 12 is listeningS-parameter: S11 (db scale)

  • Z_in_1=50-jX(2.2pF) OhmZ_in_2=50-jX(2.2pF) OhmFeed at 12 is listeningS-parameter: S21 (db scale)

  • Log10 plot of surface current density
