Microstrip Phased Array Antennas Printed on Inclined Planes
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents an analysis of the electromagnetic field radiated by micro-strip patch antennas printed on inclined surfaces. The theoretical approach allows to apply spatial rotations to each source. The computer simulation developed permits us to experiment different antenna structures and two original realisations are proposed: a 2-element array printed on two inclined planes and a 4-element array laid out on a pyramidal surface. In addition, it enables the choice of the phase applied to each radiator to produce a beam deflection function. A good accuracy is obtained between theoretical and experimental results. The aim of this study is to optimise the parameters of such antennas to achieve the desired radiation patterns, from printed phased arrays on conformal surfaces. We also present the theoretical behaviour of a octagonal pyramid.
