Abstract:

An analysis of coupled dipoles based on integral equations for currents that must be satisfied in order to meet the boundary conditions along the surface of the elements. The computer is used to numerically solve the M nonhomogeneous integral equations, using numerical approximations for the integrals and complex algebra techniques to solve the simultaneous equations. Such an analysis displays the mutual and self-admittance characteristics of a circular array and determines the effects of mutual coupling on the active element pattern. Author
