Abstract : Detailed quantitative analyses of phased-array power systems are often required as a result of the radar system's variable pulse templet operating conditions. A matrix format, with system capability factors forming columns and system operating modes forming rows, is presented as a useful type of display for the quantitative results of a power-supply system analysis. Four alternate forms of system analysis are then examined - use of steady-state techniques, use of analog computer techniques, development and use of special-purpose digital computer programs, and use of one of the general-purpose user-oriented circuit analysis programs. Examples of each approach are presented. Advantages and disadvantages of each method of analysis are discussed. It is recommended that general-purpose user-oriented analysis programs be utilized for the majority of nonrepetitive phased-array transmitter investigations. (Author)
