Floquet wave and element-by-element summation representations are implemented to investigate the radiation from a periodic, rectangular array of linearly phased/sequentially pulsed dipoles in the frequency and time-domains. A synthetic aperture type formulation for Floquet wave representation and an asymptotic formulation for the element-by-element summation representation are developed. Numerical results are presented to demonstrate the efficiency of the Floquet wave representation in terms of radiating, non-radiating and diffracted wave constituents and then validated via comparison with direct summation over the contributions of individual dipole radiations.
