Ansys Q3d simulation vs HFSS

    • Maida Farooq


      I am trying to simulate an inductor in HFSS and Q3d and the AC resistances extracted from both have substantial differences. The simulation range is 30Hz - 200 kHz. The low frequency ac resistance is lower in HFSS compared to Q3d where the higher frequency ac resistance is higher in HFSS compared to Q3d. I am not sure which simulation is giving the correct values. The simulation setup in both is : Single-Frequency (200 kHz) with a sweep range (30Hz to 200kHz) with 2000 data points. I have also attached both results.

      For these relatively low frequencies Q3D is the tool to prefer for such simulations
