Abstract

This paper deals with a scheme of Antenna array side lobe reduction by varying amplitude of each element of the antenna array using the Tsukamoto fuzzy logic controller. Here it has been tried to reduce the Side Lobe Level of the antenna array radiation pattern by changing the amplitude of the antenna array elements. Spacing between the antenna array elements and the corresponding phase - shift is given in the input of the Tsukamoto fuzzy logic controller and corresponding values of amplitude is obtained at the output of the controller. Implementing the newly obtained values of amplitude to the each element of the antenna array, the new radiation pattern with reduced side lobe level will be obtained.
