Abstract

This study presents an analysis of the convex optimization applied to the synthesis of the radiation pattern for linear antenna arrays. This study emphasizes the application of the convex optimization for the array pattern synthesis considering the simultaneous elimination of several zones interferences, reduction of the level of power in two space zones densely populated by interferences, as well as the variation of these zones in terms of proximity-distance of the source of interest, variation of the size of the interferences zones and the number of zones within the radiation pattern. Simulation results are provided. These results define certain levels where the linear array could be exploited to achieve a maximum performance.
