Abstract

A method to diagnose on-off faults in a planar antenna arrays using far field radiation pattern is presented. A systematic approach is suggested for detecting location of faulty elements using Artificial Neural Networks (ANN). Radial Basis Function neural network (RBF) and Probabilistic neural network (PNN) are considered for performance comparison.
