On the Design of Concentric Ring Arrays for Isoflux Radiation in Meo Satellites Based on PSO
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 20, 243-255, 2011
Abstract
The design of concentric ring arrays for isoflux radiation is presented in this paper. This design considers the reduction of the side lobe level and isoflux radiation requirements for Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) satellites. The optimization problem considers the spacing among rings and levels of amplitude excitations. The well-known method of Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) is utilized for this design case. The obtained results could cause the satellite hardware to be reduced significantly even more than that presented previously in the literature.
