ABSTRACT

Phased antenna array synthesis procedures based on the amplitude-phase and only-phase distributions providing the side lobe cancellation in a required direction are presented. A receiving antenna array was considered. It is characterized by the direction of the main beam for receiving the useful signal and the additional nulling direction. The required amplitude—phase distribution along the array is provided by the phase shifters and controllable attenuators/amplifiers. Moreover the modified synthesis procedure that takes into account the mutual coupling influence in the antenna array was proposed. Finally the radiation pattern transformation under the influence of the current distribution errors connected with a quality of phase shifters and attenuators/amplifiers was investigated.
