Abstract

$Scikit$-$rf$ is an open-source Python package developed for RF/Microwave engineering. The package provides a modern, object-oriented library for network analysis and calibration which is both flexible and scalable. Besides offering standard microwave network physics and operations, it is also capable of advanced operations such as interpolating between an individual set of networks or deriving network statistical properties. The package also allows direct plotting of rectangular plots, Smith Charts or automated uncertainty bounds. In this paper, the $scikit$-$rf$ package is used to simulate the WEST ICRH antennas. The antenna is modelled by connecting the various elements that compose it, separately full-wave modelled. Tunable elements, such as the matching capacitors, can be either created from ideal lump components or from interpolating full-wave calculations performed at various capacitance configurations. Finally, a numerical antenna model of a WEST ICRH antenna can be used offline or online by using operating-system-level virtualization services.
