This communication proposes a general equivalent circuit model for the fast characterization of Nth-order Phoenix cells. It provides an intuitive and comprehensive quasi-analytic description of the Phoenix cells’ electrical behavior through static lumped reactive elements representation. Given the quasi-analytic nature of the model, it can be exploited in a pre-dimensioning phase. The model proves to give good qualitative accordance with respect to full-wave simulations; statistical analysis on a large set of geometries demonstrates the model efficiency and generality.
