Abstract. Using a numerical experiment the possibilities of design of multichannel waveguide power dividers are investigated. Òhe finite element method is used for electrodynamic modeling. In a wide frequency band the characteristics of three, four, six, and eight-channel dividers with uniform in-phase power division based on a tee-coupler, smooth and linear waveguide transitions with corrective lenses, and an E-sector horns  were studied.

Keywords:  multichannel divider, waveguide divider, E-plane, wide frequency band.
