Impact of Manufacturing Tolerances of Waveguide Power Dividers on the Quiet Zone Quality of a Plane Wave Generator
Paper i proceeding, 2021

The effects of manufacturing tolerances on the quiet zone quality of a plane wave generator have been investigated. Waveguide power dividers required in the passive power distribution network of a plane wave generator have been designed. Monte Carlo simulations of the S-parameters of the designed power splitters have been performed by varying the power dividers' dimensions within manufacturing tolerances assuming a normal distribution. Furthermore, the splitting ratios resulting from the randomization are assumed to be uniformly distributed as the input for evaluating the quiet zone by means of Monte Carlo simulations. Assuming a 20 by 20 squared cm quiet zone, it has been found that for the considered setup that: (i) the phase deviation in the quiet zone never exceeds +/- 4.79 degrees, and (ii) for the amplitude deviation, never exceeds +/- 0.91 dB within a single simulated quiet zone.
