Abstract

This paper presents an active resonant conductance method (ARCM) for the design of large traveling-wave-fed SIW linear slot arrays. Two key slot parameters, slot offsets and lengths, are derived from excitation coefficients with intermediary active resonant conductance. In this method, both dominant mode mutual coupling which includes external & internal and higher order modes mutual coupling are considered. An efficient way to derive active resonant conductance of slots in large slot arrays is proposed, which makes ARCM feasible for the design of large traveling-wave-fed linear slot arrays with high performance, e.g. low sidelobe level (SLL). Finally, a 16-slot and a 32-slot traveling-wave-fed SIW slot array antennas are designed. The processing of the 32-slot array design shows the efficiency of the proposed method for large arrays. The 16-slot array is fabricated and measured. Results from simulation and measurement verify the proposed method.
