Using Near Field Equivalent Sources in Combination with Large Element Physical Optics to Model a Slant 45 Degree Omni Directional Antenna over Ground
Keywords:Antenna, equivalent sources, Feko, MoM, multipath, PO, Slant 45
This paper compares the theoretical and measured antenna patterns of a slant 45-degree antenna on a rolled edge ground plane. Advantages of using sampled nearfield currents in combination with large element physical optics in determining the reflected far fields will be described.
