BUI-VAN, Ha, ARTS, Michel, CRAEYE, Christophe, et al. On the Maximum Absorbed Power in Receiving Antenna Arrays. IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, 2018, vol. 67, n°3, p. 1993-1995.
Abstract : The loading condition to maximize the total received power in arbitrary antenna arrays is presented. It is found that the loads should equal the conjugate of the active impedance of the array in the transmitting case. A physical insight into the solution is provided. Numerical validation on a 2-D non-regular antenna array is provided.
Keywords : Receiving antenna array, optimum loads, received power, mutual coupling
