A new hybrid technique has been recently proposed for the analysis of large periodic arrays. This method is based on a high-frequency representation of the active Green’s function of a finite array, involving a Floquet wave (FW) expansion with the relevant edge and vertex diffracted ray fields originating at the array border. Using this representation, the unknown current of an appropriate fringe integral equation is expanded in terms of a few basis functions shaped as FW-induced diffracted rays. This representation drastically reduces the numerical effort and provides a physical insight into the mechanism of the array truncation. In this paper, this method is applied to the analysis of large arrays of rectangular waveguides opened on an infinite ground plane. Numerical results are shown to demonstrate the effectiveness and the numerical efficiency of the method.
