Defining an Infinite Ground Plane

Define a perfectly conducting (PEC) infinite ground plane. An infinite ground plane is an efficient method to model a large ground plane compared to a discretised, finite sized ground plane.

Define the infinite ground plane.
  1. On the Construct tab, in the Structures group, click the  Planes/arrays icon. From the drop-down list, select  Plane / ground.

  2. On the Plane / ground dialog, click Perfect electric (PEC) ground plane at Z=0.

  3. Click OK to create the infinite plane and to close the dialog.
