- Investigations on Accurate Analysis of Microstrip Reflectarrays | TICRA

in reflectarray analysis are examined and solutions to these issues are proposed The focus is on two sources of error namely the determination of the equivalent currents to calculate the radiation pattern and the inaccurate mutual coupling between array elements due to the lack of periodicity To serve as reference two offset reflectarray antennas have been designed manufactured and measured at the DTUESA Spherical Near Field Antenna Test Facility Comparisons

Scattering Grating Lobe Pattern Retrieval from Noisy Irregular Beam Data for the Planck Space Telescope Abstract In flight measurements of satellite antenna patterns are often given in a highly irregular grid and the data may be influenced by severe noise such that an accurate pat tern determination is difficult In this paper a two step fitting algorithm for retrieval of the antenna pattern will be demonstrated Publication 33rd ESA Antenna

Open archived version from archive - New Fast and Robust Modelling Algorithms for Electrically Large Antennas and Platforms | TICRA

New Fast and Robust Modelling Algorithms for Electrically Large Antennas and Platforms Abstract This paper presents two new modelling algorithms that were recently added to the commercially available GRASP software package for electrically large antenna and scattering problems In particular a new higher order multilevel fast multipole solver HO MLFMM provides very high simulation accuracy while requiring significantly less memory and CPU time than the commonly available low order MLFMM At the same time the solver incorporates a generalised form of the underlying surface integral equations which allows the use of non connected meshes and enhances the robustness in real life applications As a further addition to GRASP we outline a new Fast PO algorithm which provides accelerated integration of Physical Optics currents as well as surface currents in general The algorithm eliminates some of the limitations of previously published methods e g by allowing observation points located well within the near field region of the antenna without resorting to a much slower direct surface integration The capabilities of the new algorithms are illustrated by examples involving a large reflector antenna ground station and a detailed model of a communication satellite Publication Proc EuCAP 2015 Place Lisbon Portugal 12 17

Open archived version from archive - Integral Equation Modelling of Reverberation Chambers using Higher-Order Basis Functions | TICRA

Chambers using Higher Order Basis Functions Abstract Reverberation chambers RCs are important measurement facilities and thus it is often required to simulate their behaviour numerically However due to their special characteristics especially for high Q factors they are often considered too challenging for application of standard numerical software In particular a recent publication 1 listed the perceived state of the art in integral equation modelling of RCs and identified numerous open problems The present paper illustrates that computational analysis of large RCs can be performed with limited computer resources This can be achieved by using Higher Order HO basis functions in the integral equation discretization and if necessary further applying the Multi Level Fast Multipole Method After a discussion and brief review of existing methods for RC modelling we will turn to a description of the key features of HO basis functions and their related MLFMM implementation focusing on how they allow surpassing some of the challenges faced by lower order discretizations Then several RC test cases are analyzed drawing comparisons to other results from the relevant literature The conclusion is that using HO basis functions and a thorough MLFMM implementation some of the challenges identified in 1 can be
