Abstract

The paper investigates the possibility of forming a reflector for an antenna system based on solar panels. The design of the reflector is formed on the basis of two solar panels, which form a corner reflector. The conducted studies show that the use of solar panels as a reflector makes it possible to provide a high level of antenna directivity, provide a wide range of operating frequencies, and also ensure the generation of electricity based on green (carbon-free) energy technologies. The obtained results are confirmed by the results of electrodynamic modeling, as well as experimental measurements of the antenna layout. The developed design, thanks to the use of a planar antenna as an emitter, made it possible to provide a high level of electricity generation, since a small overlap of solar panels is provided. The results of measurements and simulations are illustrated by pictures of radiation patterns, as well as measurements of the characteristics of the electrical energy generated by the solar panel.
