A scale changing approach is proposed for the electromagnetic modeling of phase-shifter elements used in reconfigurable microelectromechanical system (MEMS)-controlled reflectarrays. Based on the partition of the discontinuity plane in planar sub-domains with various scale levels, this technique allows the computation of the phase shift from the simple cascade of networks, each network describing the electromagnetic coupling between two scale levels. The high flexibility of the approach… CONTINUE READING
