Serrations are often applied at the edges of compact range reflectors in order to reduce the scattering from the edges into the quiet zone. At low frequencies the serrations show different...

Two ways of modelling a compact range design are presented, and the coupling to a given antenna under test (AUT) is determined and compared to the AUT far field.

The compact range models...
