The aim of this work item is to study and develop efficient beamforming optimization techniques using per-element power constraints suitable for active antennas with a large number of elements. These techniques will specifically address the spot beam, shaped beams, or combination of these that are used in satellite communications. Moreover, an optimization scenario and its parameters, defined and agreed with ESA at the start of work, will form the basis of these investigations. The performances and the computational efficiency of the developed algorithms will be compared with the state-of-the-art algorithms.
