Summary: 
Optimum wideband beam pattern synthesis methods are usually sensitive to antenna elements gain, phase and position errors. In this letter, these errors are taken into account in a constraint optimization process, and a generalized diagonal loading algorithm is obtained. Computer simulations indicate the robustness of this new method.
