As titled, I'd like to explore the output power of a simple diode-based rectifier circuit, excited by an antenna (assumed to be 50 ohm impedance). Please give me some advice as to how to do this. It is related closely to the simulation modes, isn't it?
1/ Harmonic balance mode:
- To get the numerical values of power ( Pout= Vout * Iout): Harmonic balance is the best?
- Is it correct to model the antenna as a P_1tone as the following screenshot? Is it correct that the input power to the rectifier can be varied by varying that power source?
- Same question, with multi-band antenna. How to model it in HB mode?
2/ S parameter mode:
- To get the response in terms of S-para and Z, it is the best?
- Same question with the above questions, with 1-band and multi-band antennas? In my simulation, I simply used a 50-ohm terminal to model the 1-band antenna, but not quite sure it is correct. And I don't know how to deal with multi-band ones.
