Electromagnetic-Power-based Characteristic Mode Theory for Perfect Electric Conductors

Authors: Renzun Lian

In this paper, an ElectroMagnetic-Power-based Characteristic Mode Theory (CMT) for PEC systems (PEC-EMP-CMT) is built. The PEC-EMP-CMT is valid for the PEC systems which are surrounded by any electromagnetic environment, and it can construct the complex characteristic currents and non-radiative Characteristic Modes (CMs). In this paper, some traditional concepts, such as the system input impedance and modal input impedance etc., are redefined; the traditional characteristic quantity, Modal Significance (MS), is generalized; a series of new power-based CM sets are introduced. It is proven in this paper that various power-based CM sets of a certain objective PEC structure are independent of the external environment and excitation; the non-radiative space constituted by all non-radiative modes is identical to the interior resonance space constituted by all interior resonant modes of closed PEC structures, and the non-radiative CMs constitute a basis of the space. Based on above these, the normal Eigen-Mode Theory (EMT) for closed PEC structures is classified into the PEC-EMP-CMT framework. In addition, a variational formulation for the external scattering problem of PEC structures is provided in this paper, based on the conservation law of energy.
