Log Periodic Dipole Array

A log-periodic dipole array is modeled in FEKO to determine input impedance and radiation patterns Log-periodic dipole arrays (LPDAs) are wideband structures having a geometry such that its impedance and radiation characteristics vary periodically with the logarithm of frequency. This … Read More

Ku-Band Waveguide Filter

A Ku-band waveguide filter is modelled in FEKO to determine its frequency response Waveguide transmission lines are used in communications systems to feed horn or slotted waveguide antennas.  A filter is usually required to remove unwanted signal content and realising … Read More
