Efficient computation of the Green's function for multilayer structures with periodic dielectric gratings

Adanır, Süleyman
Numerical analysis of periodic structures in layered media is usually accomplished by using Method of Moments which requires the formation of the impedance matrix of the structure. The construction of this impedance matrix requires the evaluation of the periodic Green’s function in layered media which is expressed as an infinite series in terms of the spectral domain Green’s function. The slow converging nature of this series make these kinds of analysis computationally expensive. Although some papers have proposed methods to accelerate the computation of these series successfully for a single frequency point, it is still very computation intensive to obtain the frequency response of the structure over a band of frequencies. In this thesis, Discrete Complex Image Method (DCIM) is utilized for the efficient computation of the periodic Green’s function. First, the spectral domain Green’s function in layered media is approximated by complex exponentials through the use of DCIM. During the application of the DCIM, three-level approximation scheme is employed to improve accuracy. Then, Ewald’s transformation is applied to accelerate the computation of the infinite series involved in the periodic Green’s functions. The accuracy and the efficiency of the method is demonstrated through numerical examples.


Efficient Computation of Green's Functions for Multilayer Media in the Context of 5G Applications
Mittra, Raj; Özgün, Özlem; Li, Chao; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (2021-03-22)
This paper presents a novel method for effective computation of Sommerfeld integrals which arise in problems involving antennas or scatterers embedded in planar multilayered media. Sommerfeld integrals that need to be computed in the evaluation of spatial-domain Green's functions are often highly oscillatory and slowly decaying. For this reason, standard numerical integration methods are not efficient for such integrals, especially at millimeter waves. The main motivation of the proposed method is to comput...

Senturk, Osman S.; Hava, Ahmet Masum (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-08-01)
This paper proposes the waveform reconstruction method (WRM), which is utilized in the single-phase series active filter's (SAF's) control algorithm, in order to extract the load harmonic voltage component of voltage harmonic type single-phase diode rectifier loads. Employing WRM and the line current sampling delay reduction method, a single-phase SAF compensated system provides higher harmonic isolation performance and higher stability margins compared to the system using conventional synchronous-reference...

Ersöz, Ali; Eyüboğlu, Behçet Murat; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2010)
Magnetic Resonance Electrical Impedance Tomography (MREIT) algorithms using current density distribution have been proposed in the literature. The current density distribution can be determined by using Magnetic Resonance Current Density Imaging (MRCDI) technique. In MRCDI technique, all three components of magnetic flux density should be measured. Hence, object should be rotated inside the magnet which is not trivial even for small size objects and remains as a strong limitation to clinical applicability o...

Analysis of coupled lines in microwave printed circuit elements
Piroğlu, Şefika Özkal; Dural Ünver, Mevlüde Gülbin; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
Full wave analysis of microstrip lines at microwave frequencies is performed by using method of moments in conjunction with closed-form spatial domain Green’s functions. The Green’s functions are in general Sommerfeld-type integrals which are computationally expensive. To improve the efficiency of the technique, Green’s functions are approximated by their closed-forms. Microstrip lines are excited by arbitrarily located current sources and are terminated by complex loads at both ends. Current distributions ...
