Abstract: Full-wave optimisation of large arrays is computationally intensive problem even with the most advanced solvers. The paper presents a procedure for the full-wave optimisation of arrays based on a space mapping (SM) procedure. The approach combines the efficiency of MoM-based accelerated modelling techniques with physics-based coarse models to reach unprecedented efficiency in terms of accuracy and computational requirements, while maintaining complete compatibility with common engineering practices.
