Abstract

The trend towards microcells is likely to result in more base station antennas being sited on the sides of buildings. However, the presence of the wall affects the antenna's input impedance. This contribution investigates the prediction of this detuning effect using a number of integral equation approaches. The reliability of different approaches is considered and two complex image-based formulations, shown to be especially well suited to this situation, are presented
