Global Synthesis Method for the Optimization of Multifeed EBG Antennas
Radiation pattern comparison in the E-plane. 3 radiation patterns are
plotted. The first plot is obtained by the linear combination of the active
element patterns; the second is CST MWS posttreatment taking into account the
feed network scattering matrix; and the third plot results from an entire
structure simulation (the feed network and the EBG antenna are meshed under the
same CST simulation).
