Visualizing the 3D polar power patterns and excitations of planar arrays with Matlab
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2004-04)
[Abstrac] This paper discusses the use of Matlab to create three-dimensional polar plots of the power patterns of planar arrays together with 3D plots of the amplitudes and phases of their excitations. A few lines of Matlab ...
Variation in bandwidths among solutions to shaped beam synthesis problems concerning linear arrays of parallel dipoles
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2005-01)
The problem of synthesizing a linear array generating a shaped beam pattern with M filled s has 2M alternative solutions. In this study we examined their bandwidths as regards compliance with pattern quality or input ...
Variation in the bandwidths of pattern-quality parameters and maximum embedded impedance among the solutions to shaped-beam synthesis problems for collinear dipole arrays
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2003)
[Abstract] We investigated variation in the bandwidths of ripple, sidelobe level, -3 dB beamwidth, and maximum element embedded (active) impedance (|Z/sup e/|/sub max/) among multiple collinear dipole arrays radiating a ...
A comparison of optimization techniques for power patterns with low sidelobes generated by linear arrays with efficient excitation distributions
(John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2005-04-05)
[Abstract] Equispaced linear arrays that have uniformly excited central elements and monotonically decreasing flanking segments have been shown to yield low-sidelobe patterns with specified constraints on the effective ...
Beam reconfiguration of linear arrays using parasitic elements
(The Institution of Engineering and Technology, 2006-02-13)
[Abstrac] An innovative method for linear arrays beam reconfiguration is presented. This pattern reconfigurability is achieved by a mechanical displacement of a parasitic array located in front of an active one. Two worked ...
Calculating directivities with the two-dimensional Simpson's rule
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2004-08)
[Abstract] C++ routines implementing the simple generalization of Simpson's rule to two dimensions for calculating antenna directivities compare well with methods currently available in common symbolic and numerical ...
Design of Reconfigurable Array Antennas With Minimum Variation of Active Impedances
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2006-12)
[Abstract] In this letter, the authors propose an optimization method based on the genetic algorithm (GA) to reconfigure a linear array of vertical half-wavelength dipole antennas to generate two patterns with minimum ...
Effects of measurement distance on measurements of symmetrically shaped patterns generated by line sources
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2003-02)
[Abstract] Symmetrically shaped patterns, generated by real continuous linear apertures derived from Taylor distributions, resemble Taylor sum patterns in regard to the distance-dependence of their sidelobe heights. Their ...
Perturbation of the phases of Taylor field samples in the synthesis of linear and circular array antennas
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2004-12)
[Abstract] Antenna design specifications do not usually restrict the phase of the radiated field. Antenna synthesis techniques generally exploit this freedom only indirectly, but direct phase perturbation can be fruitful.
