Failure Correction of Linear Antenna Array by Changing Length and Spacing of Failed Elements
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 61, 75-84, 2017
Abstract
This paper presents a new approach for linear antenna array failure correction using geometry optimization of the failed antenna elements. It is done by changing the length and spacing of failed elements while the spacing and length of remaining elements are fixed. The flower pollination algorithm based on the characteristic of flowering plants has been used to correct the radiation pattern of linear antenna array with desired side lobe level and minimum return loss. Simulations are performed using Matlab. Two examples are given to show the effectiveness of the proposed method. In addition, the obtained results from simulation on Matlab are also validated by the results obtained from FEKO analysis.
