Abstract

A numerical study is presented for the compensation of mutual coupling in antenna arrays. A Matlab code based on method of moments is used to find the compensated far field radiation patterns for non-identical and/or staggered wire antenna arrays. The isolated patterns for some antenna arrays when applicable are found using the principle of pattern multiplication which are used to predict the compensated patterns.
