Circular arrays of log-periodic (LP) antennas are designed and their operational properties are investigated in a sophisticated simulation environment that is based on the recent advances in computational electromagnetics. Due to the complicated structures of the trapezoidal-tooth array elements and the overall array configuration, their analytical treatments are prohibitively difficult. Therefore, the simulation results presented in this paper are essential for their analysis and design. We present the design of a three-element LP array showing broadband characteristics. The directive gain is stabilized in the operation band using optimization by genetic algorithms. We demonstrate that the optimization procedure can also be used to provide beam-steering ability to LP arrays.

Analysis and design of cylindrically conformal microstrip antennas
Taşoğlu, Ali Özgür; Dural Ünver, Mevlüde Gülbin; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2011)
Cylindrically conformal microstrip antennas are investigated. Two different structures, namely proximity coupled and E-shaped microstrip antennas are analyzed and information about the design parameters is obtained by means of parametric study. With these structures, cylindrical arrays, having omnidirectional radiation in the circumferential plane of the cylinder, are designed. Proximity coupled cylindrical arrays operate in the 2.3-2.4 GHz aeronautical telemetry band with approximately 4% bandwidth. On the...

An active antenna array design and simulation of this design with a microwave circuit simulator are presented. This active antenna array is a TV receive only (TVRO) antenna operating at 10 GHz. It is a 8x4 array of rectangular microstrip patch antennas. Eight low noise pHEMTs are placed in the antenna. Passive antenna characteristics are usually obtained by analytical techniques or using special softwares for this purpose. The numerical representation as well as the nonreciprocal nature of the active device...
FAST AND ACCURATE ANALYSIS OF LARGE METAMATERIAL STRUCTURES USING THE MULTILEVEL FAST MULTIPOLE ALGORITHM
Guerel, L.; Ergül, Özgür Salih; Uenal, A.; Malas, T. (2009-01-01)
We report fast and accurate simulations of metamaterial structures constructed with large numbers of unit cells containing split-ring resonators and thin wires. Scattering problems involving various metamaterial walls are formulated rigorously using the electric-field integral equation, discretized with the Rao-Wilton-Glisson basis functions. Resulting dense matrix equations are solved iteratively,where the matrix-vector multiplications are performed efficiently with the multilevel fast multipole algorithm....
