Abstract

In this paper, a determination of radiation characteristics is performed using rectangular aperture antenna theory and transverse electric field calculation with method of moments and generalized equivalent circuit MoM-GEC for a rectangular patch antenna contained in an open-ended waveguide. This study is based on aperture antenna theory and field equivalence principle applied to the two-dimensional Fourier transform integrals over the aperture. We consider Fraunhofer-zone characteristics in terms of radiation pattern and directivity computed over an aperture through an assumed perfectly conducting screen. Results show an acceptable agreement between computed and simulated radiation data in E and H planes.
