THE POSSIBILITY OF USING THE METHOD OF INTEGRAL EQUATIONS AS THE BASIC
APPROACH IN CAD SYSTEMS ANTENNAS
The paper discusses the features of the method of integral equations on the basis of which it is expedient to conduct electrodynamic modelling of diffractive structures that are part of antenna-feeder devices. The criteria are specified on which to evaluate the effectiveness of the methods used. The advantages of the method of integral equations for analysis of objects with complex shapes are given. The advantages of using the method of integral equations for the design of magneto-dielectric antennas are considered.
Keywords: electromagnetic wave propagation, antennas, method of integral equations.
