Abstract

The prediction of edge element behavior is a common problem during the design of large array antennas. The performance of the center elements can be approximated by an infinite array model, but the edge element patterns and active reflection coefficients cannot. The full element-by-element analysis of a large finite array is either excessively time consuming or impossible due to the computer power required. A study has recently been carried out to develop and test methods of fully predicting large array performance using infinite array data. The methods devised are presented, together with comparisons of predicted performance and measured data from a 163-element WG-16 array.
