E-plane sectoral horn power divider design method for high-power antenna array applications is presented. In this method, power division is proportional to the cross section areas of the waveguide channels at the aperture of an E-plane sectoral horn antenna. Two different power dividers are designed and produced to be used with an X-band antenna array having 30 dB Taylor distribution. The first one employs a simple E-plane sectoral horn antenna. This straightforward application of the method might be limited with production tolerances. The second one incorporates a corrugated E-plane sectoral horn antenna, whose design is relatively complex but less sensitive to production tolerances. The produced dividers are compared based on simulations and measurements and good agreement with the theoretical expectations is observed for both types.


Active clamped ZVS forward converter with soft-switched synchronous rectifier for high efficiency, low output voltage applications
Acik, A; Cadirci, I (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2003-03-01)
The analysis, design, and implementation of an active clamped ZVS forward converter equipped with a soft-switched synchronous rectifier (ACFC-SR), proposed for high-efficiency low output voltage DC-DC converter applications, is presented. The converter efficiency is maximised due to soft switching of the main, active clamp, synchronous rectifier, and freewheeling MOSFET switches. The operating principles of the ACFC-SR are analysed in detail, and the converter performance is compared with that of alternativ...
Nested U-ring resonators: a novel multi-band metamaterial design in microwave region
Turkmen, O.; EKMEKÇİ, Evren; Sayan, Gönül (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2012-07-17)
In this study, a novel metamaterial topology, called M-band nested U-ring resonator (M-NURR), is proposed to provide multiple band operation with an electrically small and geometrically simple unit cell design. The M-NURR unit cell has M-nested and unconnected U-shaped metal rings printed on a dielectric substrate where each ring is primarily associated with a distinct LC type resonance frequency where L and C stand for inductance and capacitance, respectively. Therefore this M-NURR topology has the novel p...
Circumferential Traveling Wave Slot Array on Cylindrical Substrate Integrated Waveguide (CSIW)
Bayraktar, Omer; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-07-01)
Traveling wave slot array on cylindrical substrate integrated waveguide (CSIW) is designed, fabricated and measured at K-band. CSIW is formed by wrapping the substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) around the cylinder in the circumferential direction. 16 element longitudinal slot array on the broad wall of single CSIW is designed by the Elliot's design procedure. The spacings between the slot elements are determined to reduce the half power beam width (HPBW) and to obtain good matching at 25 GHz. A 4 x 16 slot...
Dual-Polarization Wideband Sub-6 GHz Suspended Patch Antenna for 5G Base Station
Ciydem, Mehmet; Miran, Emre A. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020-07-01)
This letter presents a simple, compact, low-cost, low-profile, dual-polarization, suspended patch antenna design to operate in 3.3-3.8 GHz band for 5G base stations. The proposed antenna comprises a main radiating patch, a secondary parasitic patch, modified L-probe feeds, and a vertical metal wall. The main patch is capacitively driven by two feeds for dual (+/- 45 degrees slant) polarization. The vertical metal wall is used to increase the port isolation. The parasitic patch also helps further improvement...
Hybrid-shaped single-loop resonator: a four-band metamaterial structure
Yurduseven, O.; Yilmaz, A. E.; Sayan, Gönül (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2011-12-08)
The aim of this reported work is to demonstrate the feasibility of a miniaturised four-band metamaterial resonator which has potential use in the design of multiband microwave devices such as four-band mobile phone patch antennas. The suggested resonator topology is called the hybrid-shaped single-loop resonator (HSLR) as its unit cell is formed by the combination of square-shaped and triangular-shaped sections of a single piece metal loop printed on a planar low-loss dielectric substrate. The performance o...
