© 2017 IEEE. Numerical pattern synthesis (NPS) algorithm based on adaptive array theory is an effective spatial power pattern synthesis method for antenna arrays. In this letter, instead of using the artificial interferences weighted on the total power pattern in the conventional NPS algorithm, a generalized two-dimensional (2-D) NPS algorithm is proposed in which two weighting functions are assigned to control the copolarization and cross-polarization patterns, respectively. The weighting functions are iteratively updated until both the sidelobe and cross-polarization levels reach their prescribed ones. Two numerical examples for synthesizing the patterns of a linearly polarized planar array and a circularly polarized cylindrical array are provided to validate effectiveness and advantages of the proposed generalized 2-D NPS algorithm.
