Design of Microstrip Array Antenna by Using Active Element Pattern Technique Combining with Taylor Synthesis Method
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 80, 63-76, 2008
Abstract
Active element pattern technique is applied for analyzing microstrip array, which divides a large array analysis problem as a superposition of various simplified small array problems and greatly reduces the computation burden. The effects of the mutual coupling and the surrounding array environment are rigorously taken into account in the proposed method. Based on the active element pattern technique, a low side lobe microstrip array is synthesized. The commercial full-wave simulation software, HFSS, is used to simulate the array as a whole and the efficiency of the proposed method is validated.
