—Antenna arrays with shaped power patterns have many applications in communications and radars. Many antenna array synthesis techniques for shaped patterns have been developed in the past years, and most of them deal only with uniformly spaced arrays. In this paper, a new method is proposed for the synthesis of nonuniform linear antenna arrays with shaped(More)
—The electromagnetic scattering of the synthesized three-dimensional (3-D) breaking wave crests which are formed by azimuthally aligning the individual 2-D breaking wave profiles has been numerically studied at the low-grazing angles (LGA) by using the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA) with adaptive higher order hierarchical Legendre basis(More)
—Two planar monopole antennas with wide impedance bandwidth are designed. A full-wave method of moment (MoM) based on the electric field integral equation (EFIE) is applied to analyze the impedance bandwidth and radiation performance of the monopoles. Meanwhile, the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA) is employed to reduce the memory requirements(More)
—In this paper, we first review the Phase Extracted (PE) basis functions by recalling the derivation which shows that the induced current on a PEC surface has the propagating phase factor the same as the incident wave in a scattering problem. The wide band characteristic of this PE basis functions has been investigated by demonstrating that very wide band(More)
This paper devises an electronic based emulator for tubular Direct Drive Linear Wave Energy Converter (DDLWEC). The emulator is able to output expected voltage sourced waveforms and include related impedances of a DDLWEC, which provides convenience and cost saving for testing various power conversion methods for the DDLWECs in a wide range of wave(More)
—A general multiobjective optimization and design procedure of a Luneberg lens antenna (LLA) with a compact multiband multi-polarized feed-system for a broadband satellite communication terminal is presented. The LLA utilizes a compact multiband feed horn, consisting of an inner dielectric loaded circular horn for the K/Ka-band (dual-circular polarization)(More)
An integrated converter is a synthesized converter based on the overall system integration, which is simplified by the system objective and can implement the system functions similar to the discrete converters. An integrated converter consists of converter sets; each converter set has a special function defined by the designer. A family of DC/DC buck boost(More)
