Creating a FEM Line Port

Apply a FEM line port to a FEM region when using the finite element method (FEM) solution method.

  1. On the Source/Load tab, in the Ports group, click the  FEM line port icon.

    Figure 1. The Create FEM line port (mesh) dialog.
  2. Specify the port position using one of the following workflows:
    • The edges (or a connected set of free edges that form a continuous straight line) of the port. Under Specify port, click as an edge.
    • The start point and end point of the FEM line port (in global coordinates). Under Specify port, click as points.
  3. [Optional] If the polarity of the port is to be reversed, select the Reverse polarity check box.
  4. In the Label field, add a unique label for the FEM line port.
  5. Click Create to create the wire port and to close the dialog.
