Abstract

A new type of fest method of moments (MoM) solution scheme using standard basis functions for large arrays with arbitrary contours and/or missing elements is applied to array antennas in a layered configuration. The efficiency of the method relies on use of the FFT along with approximating the Green's function as a separable sum of interpolation functions defined on a relatively sparse, uniform grid. The method is ideally suited for solving array problems, and its effectiveness is demonstrated here for planar arrays of printed antennas. Both fill and solve times, as well as memory requirements, are dramatically improved with respect to standard MoM solvers. © 2006 ACES.
