Abstract:

In this report a new method is presented for designing arrays of parallel wire antennas. The method relates a desired pattern directly with required feed voltages such that mutual coupling is taken into account in the design procedure. The technique uses matrix methods together with results of the Method of Moments to determine the self and mutual impedances and the required excitations. The design method can be applied to circular, elliptical, and other planar arrays, although attention is restricted here to linear arrays. The feed points and the array geometry must be specified. An example is included. Author
