E-plane sectoral horn power divider design method for high-power antenna array applications is presented. In this method, power division is proportional to the cross section areas of the waveguide channels at the aperture of an E-plane sectoral horn antenna. Two different power dividers are designed and produced to be used with an X-band antenna array having 30 dB Taylor distribution. The first one employs a simple E-plane sectoral horn antenna. This straightforward application of the method might be limited with production tolerances. The second one incorporates a corrugated E-plane sectoral horn antenna, whose design is relatively complex but less sensitive to production tolerances. The produced dividers are compared based on simulations and measurements and good agreement with the theoretical expectations is observed for both types.
