A mathematically general method is presented for exporting the far-field patterns, radiation efficiency and impedance data, for multi-port antennas, from EM solvers to the microwave circuit simulator of the CAESAR software in order to perform the analysis of a multi-port antenna-receiver system. This hybrid modelling approach offers a few important advantages over the early developed modelling methods and standard simulation tools; including the capability to predict the correlated noise contributions due to both internal and external noise sources, while exploiting the translation/rotation symmetry of the antenna structure to reduce computation time. This approach is validated using folded dipole antennas and applied to model a more complex antenna-receiver system the Eleven antenna feed operating from 2 to 12 GHz which consists of four log-periodic dipole arrays co-integrated with LNAs, a balun and hybrid combining network. The Eleven feed receiver model is verified by comparing the simulation results with the measurements performed with a practical system.
