Excitation of a Conducting Cylinder Using the Theory of Characteristic Modes
MetadataShow full item record
This paper describes the application of the theory of characteristic modes to excite a conducting cylinder representing the chassis of a rocket. Mode excitation is achieved by cutting H-shaped slots on the cylinder at specific locations where the maximum of modal current distribution occurs. The L-matching network is designed to match the impedance of the slots to the input coaxial cable. Finally, the proposed concept is verified during manufacturing and measurement. It is shown that the measured results are in excellent agreement with the simulation.
