Design of Beam-Forming Networks for Scannable Multi-Beam Antenna Arrays Using Corps
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 84, 173-188, 2008
Abstract
This paper deals with the design of beam-forming networks (BFN) for scannable multibeam antenna arrays using Coherently Radiating Periodic Structures (CORPS). This design of CORPS-BFN considers the optimization of the complex inputs of the feeding network by using the Differential Evolution (DE) algorithm. Simulation results for different configurations of CORPS-BFN for a scannable multibeam linear array are presented. The results shown in this paper present certain interesting characteristics in the array factor response for the scannable multibeam linear array and the feeding network implification for the design of BFN based on CORPS.
