Ansys Insight: Tips for sweeping single frequency simulations

      Although time domain simulation method is able to return broadband results, we still would want to run single frequency simulations in some situations to obtain a full spectrum. We have a built in parameter sweep GUI tool for this purpose, or users can always choose to make use some script commands to achieve this. No matter which way the sweep is done, there are several tips to improve the smoothness of a spectrum.

      FDTD and varFDTD

      In FDTD and varFDTD, there is a setting in the Advanced options tab in the Edit simulation window, like this screenshot below. This can make sure the material fit and mesh generation are in a good shape for the sweep.
