Simulation of Phased Array Antennas
Phased antenna arrays often require the implementation of an antenna feeding network. Usually the antenna feeding network is a system of microwave dividers at coaxial, microstrip, or symmetric stripline technology. The first part of the presentation is focused on the antenna factor design.
In the second part we discuss implementing the antenna feeding network as a model that is composed of ideal circuits and then the macro that calculates the antenna array factor is implemented and applied to an ideal feeding network. The last step shows the macro that automatically formats the output graphs.
