Conformal antennas are of growing importance for wireless communications and other RF applications. In many practical cases conformal antenna arrays can exhibit a layered cylindrical structure. The integral equation method allows an accurate computation of the antenna field and of the impedance matrix of the antenna array feed ports with low computational effort. The integral equation treatment is based on the dyadic Green’s function. A systematic algorithm for calculating the spectral-domain (SD) and the space-domain (SPD) dyadic Green’s function of multi layered cylindrical structures is presented. The SD components of the dyadic Green’s are obtained using a Generalized Transmission Line model (GTL). Expression of the SPD components are also given.
