Abstract:
Aimed at improving the radiating characteristics (pattern and polarization) and simplifying the design of feeding network, a new approach is applied and discussed. For uniformly excited planar antenna array, by rotating each element in its local coordinates and determining the rotation angles of the elements, the 3D radiating characteristic of the planar antenna array can be improved. The Differential Evolution (DE) algorithm is applied for optimizing rotation angles of the elements. Furthermore, the effects of the elements rotation are discussed in detail.
