This paper is presenting a very efficient method for computing the currents on a circular loop antenna with arbitrarily large size. Pocklington's integral equation is formulated for the circular loop geometry, and the method of moments with point matching is applied to cast the equation's discrete counterpart. The basis functions are chosen in such a way that the relevant square matrix is circulant, and therefore amenable to exact eigenvalue analysis. Subsequently, the matrix is diagonalized… CONTINUE READING
