Gain Estimation of Doubly Curved Reflector Antenna
MetadataShow full item record
A simple formula of approximate gain estimation is verified for the doubly curved reflector antenna. Numerical simulations using physical optics and experimental results of the shaped-beam doubly curved reflector antenna are compared with the simple approximation of gain. That approximation could be very valuable for system engineers to accurately estimate antenna gain and coverage pattern and perform EMC calculations (estimations of interferences and susceptibilities) even for the operation and out of operation frequency bands of shapedbeam antenna.
