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...
Performance Enhancement of the Single-Phase Series Active Filter by Employing the Load Voltage Waveform Reconstruction and Line Current Sampling Delay Reduction Methods
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...

Afacan, Gönenç; Tuncay, Birand; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
This thesis investigates the variations of electrical properties of linear antennas mounted on certain platforms, depending on the physical properties of that platform. In this respect, related basic antenna simulations, electromagnetic simulations from primitive to complex models of airframes, and scale model measurements were used. Firstly, electrical properties of monopoles at known environment were examined and basic analyses were performed via an electromagnetic simulation tool, named CST Microwave Stu...
Magnetic resonance current density imaging using one component of magnetic flux density
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...
Development of a closely coupled approach for solution of static and dynamic aeroelastic problems
Başkut, Erkut; Seber, Güçlü; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2010)
In this thesis a fluid-structure coupling procedure which consists of a commercial flow solver, FLUENT, a finite element structural solver, MSC/NASTRAN, and the coupling interface between the two disciplines is developed in order to solve static and dynamic aeroelastic problems. The flow solver relies on inviscid Euler equations with finite volume discretization. In order to perform faster computations, multiple processors are parallelized. Closely coupled approach is used to solve the coupled field aeroela...
