Uncertainty quantification for modern antenna systems
Many modern antenna systems, particularly for applications in telecommunication or earth observation, have significant mechanical complexity. This entails an often lengthy and detailed design process, where the design is carefully revised to ensure the best performance for the intended application. In particular, the electrical design often needs to take into account uncertainties in the mechanical design. In this paper, we present an efficient way of quantifying the effects of uncertainties by using electromagnetic simulation of the antenna design with mechanical uncertainties added to the model of the antenna. The methods shown here far outperform the conventional Monte-Carlo techniques, both in terms of accuracy and computational time.
