Optimization of feed chains and large reflectors
A higher-order Method of Moments formulation, accelerated with the Multi-Level Fast Multipole Method, and dedicated waveguide analysis methods constitute the foundation of efficient direct optimization of antenna systems consisting of feed chains and electrically large reflectors.
A numerical example illustrates that the direct optimization approach gives better results than those obtained using traditional approaches, in which the reflectors and feed chains are optimized separately.
