Fabrication Errors Influence on the Sperical Array Radiation Pattern
The paper studies fabrication errors influence on the radiation pattern of a spherical antennas array. The developed Moment Method (MoM) program analyzes a particular influence of an azimuth and elevation position and local angle errors of antenna elements as well as model dimension errors on the radiation pattern. The spectral domain approach to the analysis of the spherical antenna arrays is applied here. Finally, results obtained from the theoretical investigation are verified by comparison with measured results.
