Abstract

A new and very speedy synthesis method for linear array antennas with periodic element spacing is described. This study presents an efficient method for the pattern synthesis based on Taguchi’s method. A number of representative examples are presented to demonstrate the various unique capabilities of the method. A set of phase shift weights are generated in order to steer the beam towards any desired direction and avoiding interference. For isotropic linear antenna arrays parameter. The fitness function that allows the calculations of the phase shift weights is presented. The results of Taguchi’s method are validated by using rectangular patch antenna and simulated by software CST2009 (CST microwave studio). Taguchi’s method is briefly described in part 2. In part 3 the formulation of the array factor for linear arrays is given and fitness function will be mentioned. The numerical results optimized by Taguchi’s method are given in part 4. The last results are discuss and validated by using rectangular patch antenna and simulated by software CST2009 (CST microwave studio) in part 5. Finally, part 6 makes conclusions.
