Analysis of an arbitrary conic section profile cylindrical reflector antenna, H-polarization case
Two-dimensional scattering of waves by a perfectly electric conducting reflector having arbitrary smooth profile is studied in the H-polarization case. This is done by reducing the mixed-potential integral equation to the dual-series equations and carrying out analytical regularization. To simulate a realistic primary feed, directive incident field is taken as a complex source point beam. The proposed algorithm shows convergence and efficiency. The far field characteristics are presented for the reflectors shaped as quite large-size curved strips of elliptic, parabolic, and hyperbolic profiles.
