Radiation Analysis of Large Antenna Array by Using Periodic Equivalence Principle Algorithm
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 136, 43-59, 2013
Abstract
In this paper, an improved equivalence principle algorithm is proposed to solve the radiation problems of large antenna arrays with periodic structures. This method is a hybridization in which the typical scheme of periodic Green's function is combined with the original equivalence principle algorithm. The repeated elements are changed from the original antenna units into the surfaces enclosing the original ones. The proposed approach is compared with periodic method of moments which is based on the integral equation and the periodic Green's function. Numerical results validate the feasibility of the improved method.
