Interference coupling analysis based on a hybrid method: application for radio telescope system.

Qi Liu, Yang Qiu, Qing-Lin Xu, Jin Tian

Working in a way that passively receives the electromagnetic radiation of celestial body, the radio telescope is easily disturbed by external radio frequency interference (RFI) as well as the electromagnetic interference (EMI) generated by electric and electronic components operating at telescope site. The quantitative analysis for these interferences must be taken into account carefully for further electromagnetic protection of the radio telescope. In this paper, based on the electromagnetic topology (EMT) theory, a hybrid method that combines Baum-Liu-Tesche (BLT) equation and transfer function is proposed. In this method, the coupling path of radio telescope is divided into strong coupling and weak coupling sub-paths, and the coupling intensity criterion is proposed by analyzing the conditions that BLT equation simplifies to transfer function. According to the coupling intensity criterion, the topological model of a typical radio telescope system is established. The proposed method is used to solve the interference response of the radio telescope system by analyzing the subsystems with different coupling modes respectively and then integrating the responses of the subsystems as the response of the entire system. The validity of the proposed method is verified numerically. The results indicate that the proposed method, compared with the direct solving method, reduces the difficulty and improves the efficiency of the interference prediction.
