Moxon Antenna Array Design and Pattern Synthesis Technique
Moxon Antenna Array Design and Pattern Synthesis Technique

Suad Başbuğ [1]


A four-element moxon antenna array is proposed in this paper. Its directive properties are shown with simulations and compared with the classical dipole array. In order to synthesize the pattern of moxon array, a hybrid method that consists of differential evolution (DE) and numerical electromagnetics code version 2 (NEC2) is also introduced. Basically, the cost function used by DE is designed with the help of NEC2 simulations to achieve more realistic optimum antenna array designs. Patterns having one and double sidelobe suppression at predetermined angles are successfully synthesized by using this method whereas the gain value is maintained properly. Robustness of the proposed method is also examined. For this aim, multiple executions of the method implementation are performed under same conditions. The results show that the method introduced in this paper is very stable in terms of the radiation pattern and convergence curves.
