Microstrip Solutions for Innovative Microwave Feed Systems (English)
This report is introduced with a presentation of fundamental electromagnetic theories, which have helped a lot in the achievement of methods for calculation and design of microstrip transmission lines and circulators. The used software for the work is also based on these theories.
General considerations when designing microstrip solutions, such as different types of transmission lines and circulators, are then presented. Especially the design steps for microstrip lines, which have been used in this project, are described. Discontinuities, like bends of microstrip lines, are treated and simulated. There are also sections about power handling capability of microstrip transmission lines and different substrate materials.
In the result part there are computed and simulated dimensions of the microstrip transmission lines used in the prototype system. Simulations of conceivable loads in the cavity illustrate quantitatively the reflection coefficient. Even practical measurements are made in a network analyzer and are presentedin this part.
Suitable materials and dimensions for the final microwave feed transmission line system for high powers are then presented. Since circulators are included in the system a basic introduction to the design of these in stripline and microstrip techniques is also made.
At last conclusions, examinations of the designed system and comparisons to the today’s systems are made.
