ACCURACY AND COMPLEXITY ASSESSMENT OF SUB-DOMAIN MOMENT METHODS FOR ARRAYS OF THIN-WIRE LOOPS

By P. J. Papakanellos

Full Article PDF (156 KB)

Abstract:
A direct sub-domain moment-method formulation is presented for the analysis of arrays of thin-wire loops. Curved piecewise sinusoidal basis functions are used for the description of the currents on the loops, while both point matching and reaction matching are examined as testing schemes. Numerical results are provided for representative array structures with the intention to delve into the behavior of the solutions as the number of basis/testing functions grows, but also for the purpose of comparison with well-documented results. Finally, the complexity of the developed codes is estimated and general guidelines are provided for the efficient and accurate analysis of multi-element arrays.
