A Diamond-Type Broadband Microstrip Patch Antenna with a Folded Floor
Han Lin and Yiwei Tao
In this paper, a diamond-shaped broadband high-gain microstrip patch antenna based on a folded floor structure is proposed. The overall dimensions of the antenna are 108 mm × 100 mm × 25 mm. Additionally, it contains a radiating microstrip patch, a folded ground plane, and a capacitive feed strip. The broadening of the antenna's operating band is achieved by enhancing the microstrip radiating patch and the capacitive feed band. The original rectangular structure was transformed into a rhombic structure, enabling the radiating patch to absorb the current more effectively and achieve a better impedance match for the antenna operating around 5 GHz. The radiation performance of the antenna is maximized by utilizing the folded floor structure. Measured results show that the impedance bandwidth of the antenna is about 61.5% (2.84 GHz-5.36 GHz), covering 5G dual bands. Meanwhile, the peak gain reaches 12.6 dBi, and the average gain reaches 10.7 dBi.

Amit A. Deshmukh , Kushal Katira , Aarti G. Ambekar , Venkata A. P. Chavali , Hari Vasudevan and Tushar V. Sawant
Multi-resonator gap-coupled design of coaxially fed half-hexagonal microstrip antennas is proposed in 900 MHz frequency range. It yields an impedance bandwidth of 32 MHz (3.28 %) on a thinner FR4 substrate (~0.01λg). Reduction in patch area in the gap-coupled design is achieved by employing the ground plane slots. Slots reduce the fundamental mode resonance frequency on each patch, thereby realizing wideband response in a lower frequency region. With impedance bandwidth of 26 MHz (3.4%), slot cut ground plane design provides patch area reduction by 38.13% and frequency reduction by 21.8%. Enhancement in the broadside gain on a thinner lossy substrate in the gap-coupled designs is achieved by integrating a cavity-back structure, which provides gain increment by nearly 2.5-3 dBi. Thus, the proposed work outlines a technique that enhances the bandwidth and reduces the patch size with an increment in the gain, on a thinner lossy substrate. An experimental verification for the obtained results is carried out that shows a close agreement.

Yingjie Du and Mingxin Liu
To solve the problem of antenna miniaturization and mutual interference between the communication band of the UWB system and other wireless communication system bands, this paper proposes a UWB monopole antenna which has frequency notch characteristics. By applying two pairs of Split Ring Resonator (SRR) structures on a CPW transmission line, a coupling resonance is generated in a specific frequency band, and the antenna has a dual frequency notch and a wide band notch function. The measured results show that the antenna has good band-notch characteristics in the frequency ranges of 3.3 GHz to 4 GHz and 5.1 GHz to 6.2 GHz, suppressing ultra-wideband interference between WiMAX (3.3 GHz~3.8 GHz) and WLAN (5.15 GHz~5.35 GHz and 5.725 GHz~5.825 GHz) in a wireless communication system. The volume of the antenna is 40 mm × 36 mm × 1 mm, and the measured results are compared with the simulated model results. Besides, the measured and simulated results have a good consistency.

Reconfigurable Compact Wide-Band Quad-Port Antennas Based on a Varactor Diode for Sub-6 GHz 5G Communications
Qasim Hadi Kareem Al-Gertany
The rapid expansion of wireless communication systems has spurred a growing demand for adaptable multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) antennas capable of accommodating diverse frequency bands and operational environments. This paper presents a compact quad-port wide-band tuning-reconfigurable MIMO antenna tailored specifically for 5G applications operating within the sub-6 GHz spectrum. The proposed design enhances isolation levels (>18 dB) and augments pattern diversity by utilizing four orthogonal radiating elements. Integrating a C-shaped monopole element with a matching stub facilitates frequency tuning via a varactor diode, ensuring a consistent radiation pattern. The lower and upper resonant bands could be fine-tuned by adjusting the varactor diode's reverse-biased voltage within the allowed range of 0.5 to 10 V. These bands are 4 to 5.18 GHz and 5.45 to 6.65 GHz, respectively. The proposed antenna system's four C-shaped elements are placed on a 40 × 40 mm2 ground plane and mounted on a Rogers RT5880 substrate that is 0.8 mm thick with a relative permittivity of 2.2. This design is well suited for various wireless applications and cognitive radio networks due to its compatibility with sub-6 GHz frequency bands and wide-band tuning capabilities.

Sampling Strategy Selection for EMC Simulation Surrogate Model in Uncertainty Analysis and Electromagnetic Optimization Design
Shenghang Huo , Jinjun Bai , Shaoran Gao and Yule Liu
Surrogate models have been gradually promoted in electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) simulation in recent years, and two typical application scenarios are uncertainty analysis and electromagnetic optimization design. The surrogate model can simulate the forward EMC simulation process as accurately as possible with relatively few sampling points. The choice and number of sampling points will directly determine the accuracy of the surrogate model. The purpose investigated by uncertainty analysis and electromagnetic optimization design is different. How to choose appropriate sampling strategies is worth discussing, but there are fewer studies in the field at this stage. This paper applies a cascaded cable crosstalk example to explore the accuracy of the surrogate model under different sampling strategies, which provides a theoretical level of guidance for the application of the surrogate model in EMC simulation. The study enables the surrogate model to be better suited for two application scenarios: uncertainty analysis and electromagnetic optimization design.

Dual-Band Circularly Polarized Antenna with Wide Axial-Ratio and Gain Beamwidths for High-Precision BDS Applications
Junhao Ren , Hongmei Liu , Youjie Zeng , Zhongbao Wang and Shao-Jun Fang
In the paper, a dual-band circularly polarized (CP) antenna with wide axial-ratio and gain beamwidths is proposed for high-precision BDS applications. The radiator is consisted of four groups of dipoles, eight metal columns, and a reflector. The half-power beam width (HPBW) can be effectively increased by bending a portion of the dipole into an arc and loading a series of metal columns on the ground. Besides, a reactive impedance structure (RIS) is inserted serves as a reflector to improve the axial ratio beamwidth (ARBW) and obtain unidirectional radiation. At the same layer of the dipoles, a four-feed network is presented to provide stable quadrature-phase excitation. For validation, the designed antenna is manufactured, where the overall size is 0.48λ0 × 0.48λ0 × 0.12λ0. Measurement results suggest that the proposed antenna is capable of operating efficiently within the frequency range of 1.17-1.22 GHz (4.2%) and 1.5-1.65 GHz (9.5%), which covers BDS B1 and B2 band. Moreover, at four main planes, the measured 3-dB ARBW/HPBW are more than 121°/121° and 150°/198° at 1.207 GHz and 1.561 GHz, separately. Consider that the proposed CP antenna exhibits wide overlapped beamwidth and small size, it is conducive to high-precision positioning in BDS applications.

Wenjian Zhu , Jiayi Chen , Panshi Hu , Zhi Song and Yanbing Xue
This paper introduces a 5G multi-frequency antenna design method based on multi-objective sequential domain patching. By etching helical metamaterials on radiation patches and loading asymmetric electric-inductive-capacitive metamaterials on the transmission line side, the antenna structure is designed and optimized using electromagnetic simulation software, HFSS, and MATLAB. The resulting multi-frequency antenna operates across multiple frequency bands: n1, n41, 3.5G, and 4.9G. To ensure antenna performance and radiation efficiency, the antenna multi-frequency bands are precisely controlled. The experimental results show that the error between each operating frequency band and target frequency bands of the antenna is within 7.2%. Compared with conventional antenna design methods, the use of metamaterials and intelligent algorithms to optimize the structural parameters and loading positions of metamaterials can improve antenna performance while shortening the design cycle. Overall, this research offers novel insights into the design of 5G high-performance antennas.

High-Performance Ceramic Filter Design Based on Six-Blind-Hole Coupling Structure
Yang Gao , Yun Xiu Wang , Xiao Tao Yao , Guangyong Wei and Jie Liu
An innovative ceramic filter is presented in this paper. The filter is composed of six tuning apertures, coupling channels, and a six-blind-hole coupling structure. The six blind holes are divided into two groups: one situated between the first and second cavities to induce inductive coupling, and the other positioned between the second and third cavities to facilitate capacitive coupling. Employing this structure facilitates the formation of a cascade quadruple (CQ) coupling unit among the 1, 2, 3, and 4 resonant cavities, thereby introducing two transmission zeros. Subsequently, an analysis of the influences of the depth and spacing of each blind hole on the coupling coefficients is presented. Finally, to further validate the theory, the filter tailored for base station applications was designed and implemented. The measurement results demonstrate a center frequency of 3.5 GHz with a bandwidth of 200 MHz. In the passband, the insertion loss was below 1.2 dB, and the return loss surpassed 19 dB. The test outcomes align closely with the simulation, confirming the reliability of the design.

Study on ac Loss Suppression in Rectangular Winding Motors for Electric Vehicles
Shengyang Xu and Quanfeng Li
Currently, excessive AC loss in the rectangular winding motor used for electric vehicles poses a significant challenge, necessitating effective measures to suppress the losses. This paper focuses on the Prius IV motor, employing a finite element two-dimensional model established using JMAG software. The influence of conductor material and the number of rectangular winding layers on motor AC loss under various operating conditions is thoroughly analyzed. Maintaining a constant number of rectangular winding layers, aluminum (Al) conductors replace copper (Cu) conductors in 2-layer, 4-layer, 6-layer, and 8-layer configurations, respectively. AC losses are compared among motors with 4-layer, 6-layer, 8-layer, and 10-layer Cu rectangular windings, all having identical slot dimensions. Subsequently, the 10-layer Al conductor scheme is chosen to optimize motor design. The results demonstrate an average reduction in AC loss up to 59.24% after motor optimization, further reducing motor manufacturing costs.

Key Practical Issues of the MoM Using in EMC Uncertainty Simulation
Jinjun Bai , Shaoran Gao , Shenghang Huo and Bing Hu
The Method of Moments (MoM) is widely used in Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) uncertain simulation due to its advantages, such as non-embedded simulation, high computational efficiency, and immunity from dimensional disasters. The theoretical research of the MoM has been relatively complete, but many of its key practical issues have not been fully discussed, which will result in the calculation accuracy in practical engineering applications falling short of theoretical expectations. With the help of the Feature Selective Validation (FSV) method, this paper analyzes and discusses two aspects. One is how to reasonably select the perturbation, and the other is the relationship between the uncertainty input size and the accuracy. By solving key practical issues of the MoM, the aim is to further promote it in the EMC field.

A Spatial Electromagnetic Field Analysis Method for Estimating the Dynamic Positions of Multiple Mobile High-Frequency Power Supplies
Rui Zhang , Yanfeng Gao and Jixuan Wang
A spatial electromagnetic field analysis method is proposed by adding variable speed nodes to the circuit topology to estimate the optimal location of multiple mobile high-frequency power supplies at multiple nodes in this paper. In the process of continuous motion, the speed and position of motion affect the accumulated power and loss at the circuit node. At the same time, the transmission efficiency and delay characteristics of the high-frequency mobile power supply will also change with the precise positioning of the mobile power supply and the change of the spatially coupled electromagnetic field. The spatial electromagnetic field analysis method with variable speed nodes is used to divide the circuit topology of mobile high frequency power supply system according to the number of nodes. The continuous motion of variable speed nodes is used to simulate the real-time positioning of multiple mobile high-frequency power sources. By analyzing the real-time variation of the high-frequency electromagnetic field at variable speed nodes, the quantitative relationship between the electromagnetic characteristics of the node space and the speed and positioning of the mobile power supply is established. Finally, the fast optimal positioning of each mobile high-frequency power supply in the continuous moving process is obtained. Compared with the position estimation results obtained by the traditional relation calculation method, when the size is greater than 100, the proposed method can locate the position of multi-mobile high-frequency power supply faster and more accurately, and the circuit efficiency reaches 90%. The simulation results verify the correctness of the theoretical analysis.

Theoretical Analysis of Bandwidth Requirements for Damped Sinusoid Measurement
Jing Yang , Wei Wu , Zhizhen Zhu , Zhitong Cui , Yayun Dong , Xin Nie , Fei Cao and Chuan He
High altitude electromagnetic pulse (HEMP) couples to cables and introduces interference into the connected electronic equipment. Responses arising from the transient electromagnetic field typically follow an exponentially damped sinusoid behavior. Thus, damped sinusoids with different parameters are recommended in the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards as typical injected waveform for HEMP conducted immunity test. To guarantee the compliance of the injected pulse, accurate measurement of the injected pulse is needed. Wideband proportional current sensors are often applied to measure the injected damped sinusoid. However, bandwidth requirements of wideband proportional current sensor for damped sinusoid measurement are not specified. In this paper, two formulae are deduced to establish the relationships between the bandwidth requirements and the fundamental resonance frequency of the damped sinusoid to be measured. It is convenient and simple for the on-site engineers to check whether the bandwidth of the proportional current sensor is suitable by the formulae. Monte-Carlo simulation is conducted in support of the recommended formulae.
