Sub-Domain Mom Formulation for Circular and Non-Circular Loop Antenna Arrays

The Method of Moments (MoM) analysis of thin-wire loop antenna arrays with multiple elements is presented in this paper. The proposed formulation provides simple algorithmic implementation that can be applied to circular loop arrays as well as more generally shaped arrays using the Pocklington's integral equation with simplified kernel for arbitrary shaped wires in combination with a superquadric curve representation. This analysis leads to knowledge of the current distribution, input impedance and other electromagnetic properties of both uniform and non-uniform loop arrays.
